h... for me that car is an E39 M5.
Maybe if you move to GERMANY but having a 400 HP car in the US is pointless

You can build something fast on a cheaper name plate once you refuse the blue and white propellor of stupidity.

8k for a red 245, apparently the airbags make it rare?

Airbags aren't that rare... the seller is nuts. That's at best a $4,000 car!

S/he might get their fish at $8k. The older red block Volvo’s have their cult in New England and the money is here, too. Having owned and drive both, I couldn’t fathom driving a red block today.

I don't mind 240s, but I really love the 7/9. Way nicer to drive.

The price is just outrageous, though. Even the red bock guys on Turbobricks are laughing at the guy... if it was a really nice one, sure. But that one is just not.

Don't know that I'd go so far to say "excellent condition" but it looks solid. At the very least, he could buff that paint back to red, the flat pink makes it look like a $500 car!

96 850 GLT, 236k mi, rural Maine, $500. Inspection good through Feb. Looks like a fine project for the mechanically inclined - a fine "wintah beatah" (winter beater). Losing some clear coat on the trunk but the seller says no rust and runs good. Interior looks good.

I have no relation to this puppy. Would consider it but don't have the time to spend on fixing it.

Now THAT looks like a good deal. Cheap, drivable, clean title, and rust-free? Sounds like a great deal!

It’s not a wagon so it can’t carry wood, Dave

Also -500 points for covering the rear plate and forgetting to cover the front
