Please rescue my 850t5!

Posted Apr 14th, 2013 at 18:11 by mikey850t5

Right, Im at the point now where I can't afford to run two cars and I still live at home and my old man just doesn't share my love of volvos and is forcing my hand to scrap it. Sooo I have contacted my local volvo breakers but we keep missing each other like passing ships in the night. He's offered me 200 scrap if anyone else wants it they can have the same price. It's a L reg 850 turbo (one of the first) The cars done 154k miles but the engine is still so sweet according to many a mechanic. It's also a manual and I have had the ecu done and uprated the clutch because the last one melted. I have probably stuck over 2000 into the car which is why I think i've developed some sort of emotional complex about scrapping it. Im starting to feel like Mr Trebus so someone please come get my car. It has no tax or MOT and a few dents but the underneath is solid. Also has toyo proxys all round with plenty of tread left.

Message me if you want pics or to know more.

Im based im Cambs so if your local and want a very cheap fast car let me know, or even if you just want it for parts.

Mobile : 07821999728.

Many Thanks,
