A Volvo love story

Post by redc70 »

This is a topic I saw on a forum today, truly awe inspiring! This guy loves his Volvo and it shows.
Hope the mods don't mind a post from another forum, but this gives me hope for my own C70.
The knowledge and attention to detail is astonishing!
Hope someone enjoys this as much as I did!

Very good read. Thanks for sharing. A real testament to how great the Volvo P80s are. I don't think there are many cars from the 90s and early 2000s that people would put so much effort into bringing back to life.
'98 S70 T5M - 282,000+mi - forever a project
'99 S70 "AWD" - 220,000+mi - part out :cry:
Knows enough to be dangerous :wink:
