Default Nice Volvo

I know you are thinking that is an oxymoron, but this is actually a nice car


I know where one is rotting away, and I'm trying to convince my friend to buy it

I've seen that one before, it has a verified 2 million miles on it or something like that.
Volvo builds a great car. Some aren't much to look at, but they last a long time. My 244 GL was the easiest car to work on that I've ever had. The alternator was made to be able to change the brushes and rectifier without removing the alternator from the car.

I saw that high mileage Volvo in person last year at the Philly Auto Show, I believe it actually has 3mil, not 2.

An old friend of mine has one and loves it. Its been his daily driver for as long as I've known him and its still in amazing condition. I think its a p100 or p1800. I never could get that right. LOL
