Is that a thing?! I haven't even taken any pics of the walmart ratchet strap motor mount tie downs.. or the rubber diamond plate carpeting.. or even the 1/4" metallic ..indoor insulation headliner. I think the best part I've found so far is the allen wrench stuck into a rubber hose as a plug. Oh, and the completely missing turbo bits.

95' Volvo 850 5-speed for sale in Granby with some serious miles. It looks more like a 94' to me honestly, but I am tempted to go look at it.
Please do read the entire ad, it's very funny.

Two very nice 850's in NE:

Super clean 850 with premium package and 5-speed, if this wasn't red it would be in my driveway already.

Well maintained turbo wagon.

^ like that. That's just a raw copy/paste of the first ad. If nothing else, it's a historical nugget of how much X car was going for with X miles in X year.
