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?

This guy has slowly come down from a 4k list price on this. Supposedly it only has 59,700 miles.

This 1983 240 is down to $1300 now. If I didn't spend all my money on my car already I'd go take a look.

When it reaches $400 the bargaining can begin. You do lose credibility by asking a ridiculous starting price, as you do with the weasly “ make offer”

Ugh, I hate that. "Offer me what you think it's worth" will always get an insulting low ball from me. Those sellers almost always think they have something worth WAY more than it is.

Someone with a fixation on a cheap 6M AWD got to it.

Not a Craigslist find but I spotted the new v40 in Thessaloniki. Wish we had these in the states so I could buy one in 10 years when it's in my budget.
