From what I understand, it's as simple as getting a bond, then filling out paperwork. Lots of paperwork...

That green S70 looks really clean, similar condition to my 2000 GLT. I'm excited to get that car done soon, it should be great to drive. Hopefully I don't get attached to it, I need to thin my herd!
Didn't seem too bad nor a lot of paperwork from what friend said. The time involved might take awhile however.

For me it's not so much the number of cars in the driveway. But when I start talking about building a detached 4 car garage.... :o

I don't know what the problem is.

I hope it's not too bad... well, I hope that the guy I bought my 240 from will get the title sorted out with his buddy so I can get it and not have to get it myself. I don't have any patients... I'm not a doctor...

I don't know what the problem is.
Today my 17 year old son said we need to find land so we can build an affordable home large enough so Grand Parents can move in. I said a nice 4 car garage/barn with tall ceiling. He said his friend wants the same thing with living space above. If you build better not have living space above or else you'll be living there.
Blessings,

Great first car for a teenager or project car for an adult Volvo teenager at heart?
Question: A VT car with surface rust? How does that translate in terms of underpinning?

Hmm, I'd have to check that out. I don't know how badly those rust, but it couldn't be any worse than a P80.

I've been looking for a V50 T5 M66 though...

The Clister updated the Post 7 hours ago meaning perhaps there has been low interest so he's bumping it back up.
