Hi everyone,

Thought this would be a good thread to start. I am 30 years old and have purchased my first Volvo, XC70 D5 lux and love it.

So the purpose of the thread is getting peoples age and what model of Volvo you all drive. Thanks

It will be interesting to see if there is a correlation between owner's age and model driven.

For the record, I'm 68 and drive a 2000 V70 Auto., although it was not my first choice.

Having owned a long line of RWD Volvos since 1984, culminating in the long term ownership of a 745, I would much rather it was a 965 or V90.

We also own two Saabs; a 9 - 3 convertible, which was a default purchase because we could not find a nice C70; and also a 9000 'Griffin', which replaced my wife's long term ownership 744 when she could not find a nice 964 to do so.

What does that say about us?

Regards, John.

Regards, John.

I’m now 25. Got my first Volvo at 20 which was an S40 (first shape.) Got an s60 D5 after that. I’m now volvoless as a company van has taken its place I still work on my dads v70s tho the latest been a v70 D5 R design. Might ditch the van and buy another one but financially it doesn’t make sense

LHD rust free 740 estate, 3 x V90's, a pile of 2.3 engines including a brand new head and block for a turbo charging project when I find a mint LHD 740 saloon. Classic cars are like beautiful mature women, they look great until you start poking about. I am the wrong side of 60.

The awkward age of 54.
62 plate XC60 since July 2016. 58 plate V70 2.4 immediately prior to that and a 940 and two 340's going back in time.
My sons first car was a 340, which was older than him when we bought it.

My 1993 940 was a company car and I loved it. Did 140k in 4 years in it and was very reluctant to give it up. Never had a car with seats as comfortable before or since.

62 and current Volvo's as per my signature.

Had a 145S at the age of 18 and have been a continuous Volvo owner ever since. I cannot imagine life without a Volvo.

Exactly my sentiments... Got a V70 (after my 940 was trashed by a BMW) but would prefer a late 965 or V90...

Oh, I am 46.
