I had a 740 turbo. It was...probably...the most beat-up beater I bought. Kinda fun though.

Me and Petey (petraman) found a older 70'* volvo at the U-Pull It with just a hair over 550,000 miles on it. He'll vouch for me. I could not believe the amount of miles it had, and surprisingly it still looked good.
