Default How old

Bought my first Amazon when I was 28 and now on wrong side of 70. Then a 144E, 264GLE, S80 2.9, S60 D5(163), 960,940GLE, 940, S80 D5 (4 years now and love it), V70. Now have my 2nd Amazon, C70 T5 GT and my S80.
Had a Volvo since 1971 but also had the Audi's, BMW, VW's, 24V Senator - great car, but always went back to Volvo.

Love omegas, and big vauxhalls in general. Had a 66 viscount 3.3 with a two speed powerglide auto box, huge...a senator 3.0, couple of carltons, a calibrate with the v6 and a brace of manual omega 2.5 v6, underrated big motors.
Buy the ticket, take the ride.

33, 2014 V60 D6, my third volvo.

Had 2 S60 D5's, 2005 and 2007, owned both around 5 years, love the 5 pot engines 👍

I imagine my next one will be full electric if it's something i can afford, or i will sadly be moving away from Volvo and into a used tesla.

To be honest I think I've lost count. I'm 66 just parted with my beloved V70R remapped estate. I love seeing M3' & M5' getting smaller in the rear view...but still retain a couple the 2.4T being quite nippy just shy of the T5 performance. Lol forgot to put the T5 in my sig...getting old...
