I love this photo, well done! The colors give it a serene feeling. The XC70 looks good too. Those wheels were an upgrade, correct?

Thanks Matthew, This is the colors of sunny south Portugal, Lovely country. The car was well cared by the previous owner, it drives like a charme. I like it a lot and enjoying it as much as my old silver 240 wagon for long road trips.
The wheels are Erinus 16' , i think they are common to 2005 - 07 XC70 along with the Xenia 16'

I bought a 1990-240 several weeks ago. An older person owned it, who has/had dementia, so it was sold, and then resold to me. Apparently, this gentleman respected this vehicle, and most likely, owned it quite awhile. Around 100k miles, and it was maintained, even with newer Volvo spark wires.

A rare find....previous owner I suspect wanted to keep it, but it had hard starts, and he couldn't figure out that the FPR was bypassing. Roof, front hood, and truck lid all have some sun damage, but other than that, a very clean vehicle.

I plan to make it a Sunday driver, or on trips, and mostly sit inside of a machine shed.

Footnote....since vehicle was given to a non-profit, and then sold to person I bought it from, I didn't know previous owner's name who maintained vehicle. Today, I found out his name, Kinnaman, which is Swedish.

Great find!
Vehicle has sat for about a month now for maintenance: New sparks, flow tested 5 injectors (cold start + 4), water pump, water hoses, thermostat, timing belt, idler, seals (crank, cam, immediate), clutch fan, CPS, PCV Oil Trap, etc., were all done.

Took it out last night for its first drive since doing maintenance...runs fine...smooth.

When I looked in trunk, I found this spare tire...a very unusual find:-). Now, I'll have to get another one...VW bug tire for it:
