Default Help - looking for a T5R

Hi guys. I'm trying to track down a specific green estate T5R, original reg was M744UNU.
It featured in the in house volvo magazine in late 1995 along side both a black and gul.
Any help tracking it's whereabouts or demise would be massively appreciated?

Hi, according to the DVLA the car has not been taxed since 2005. If this helps.

I very much doubt it, when I broke a car it took 2 years of hassling dvla to sort the v5 as scrapped and that was using an approved scrap merchant.

Most likely it's an oversight at dvla and it's been scrapped.

I certainly haven't seen it up forsale in the last 3 years and I'm currently on 210 cars out of 340 taxed and on the road.

As a general rule it's 80% estates 20% saloon and 50/50 auto / manual

So (approx) 28 t5r saloons, 112 t5r estates
36 850r sal. 144 850r estates

So if your looking for a t5r saloon man they are rare.

You think about it when was the last time you saw any saloon 850 on the road.

I unfortunately look out on 2 guls, one estate one saloon, both manuals, olive green 850r 6 sp oh and a v70r p2 in sonic blue.

But yes saloons are getting so rare, as I said try and think last time you saw any 850 saloon on the road.
