Took this other night in the parking lot of a local Target. I always park far away from wherever I'm going. Figure the extra steps will keep me younger/fitter longer. (Wife hates it so I try not to do it as much when she's with me. :lol: )

As I walked back to our car. I kind of fell in love all over again. Sure, there are noises I can't quite pinpoint, a creaky dash that I really should have gotten to already, and the headliner...

But, if I wanted a perfect car, I would be here...

I can't believe it's been over two years we've had her.

Thanks for all the help everyone.

"R" stands for "off-Road", right?

On the theme of off-Road. Although a bit after the fact with just the dirt left to show for it.

Car so damn pretty it's disgusting. Driving it over 2 years, still feel thrown when I look at it parked there sometimes.

Two weeks ago a CL ad popped up on my search for a low mileage, unmolested, always garaged, very clean 850 base with auto trans. not too far from me.
I was intrigued and went to take a look at it. Too my surprise it was a one owner, very well cared for car with the timing belt done just last spring. It also had brand new Michelin tires on it and a recent oil change sticker from the local Volvo dealer. Also the trans. fluid was nice and pink. Did I mention that it was really cheap?
Unfortunately, the odometer stopped working at 88k. Based on the Carfax and other indicators I'm thinking it can't have more than 100k on it. The last oil change was due at 91k last spring. Right after that it was donated by the owner and then it got auctioned off, that's how it ended up at a local used car dealer.
Crappy cell photo, but this is it:
