What a nice wagon, BB.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

It was intercooled, small bumpers. That pic was mid-2000s. Bought it in ..'90 (?).

Then an old guy with dementia did this at 7AM on a Sunday morning. We jumped out of bed at the noise. Demolished his K car, drove off somehow, fluids all over the street, dragging plastic all the way home. Had no memory of hitting anything. Sad.

Shoved it up across the sidewalk, bent the frame, kinked the rear quarter panel. Then he scraped down the side taking out all those panels.

All that said, it was starting to show some rust and eventually decisions about keeping it would have to come up.

Wow, that's a shame. Honestly it's a miracle he was okay in a K-car... those things are death traps. Especially against a Volvo!
