Default Picked up a new toy....

Well, i found a deal that I couldn't pass up, so I went for it. 1993 Volvo 850 GLT. Loaded. Only issue is a blown motor. Not really an issue since they come into the junkyard by me often and are fairly cheap. I picked it up for a possible winter car next winter if I can get a motor and get it swapped.

So what do you think?

TURBO BRICK!!!!!!!!


I'm more of a fan of the old 740 Turbo models. Indestructible (and RWD!), those things

Those cars are wierdly attractive IMO. Like the "newer" mid to late 90'* models a little better, but the square shape is cool....


good buy!

I am looking for a 740 turbo wagon as a project car, but this one fell into my lap. Just missed a 91 740 turbo wagon for $100. still kicking myself on that one.

I have loved the 850'* for a while, just wish they were RWD.
