70 and drive a 2011 C70, when it's going, that is.

As have others, I previously had a Saab 93 vert.
Just my opinion, please don't shoot me if it doesn't match yours!

Started with a 940 about 16 years ago, unfortunately it had an unbalanced propshaft for most of it's life and by the time I had figured it out (there were several old receipts in the service history from the Volvo dealership to investigate the vibrations) there was damage to the back end of the gearbox, I sometimes wish I had kept it and sorted it. Two 850s followed in fairly quick succession, the first was bought with the heart not the head, it was beautiful car but the engine was worn out, the second 850 was a very tatty stopgap until I found the current V70 which I've had for about 8 years.

I’m 47 and on my third Volvo. I’ve got a 65 plate V60’ Cross Country Lux Nav.

Previous Volvo’s S60 and V50.

Where’s Roy Castle and Norris McWhirter when you need them?
