Volvo, We Barely Knew Thee: Tony's 1986 245.

April 15, 2013

We bought this Burgundy Brick on Christmas Eve 2012 from a professor in Ashland, OR. It had 125k miles, complete service records and some needs, and we paid $1,000 for it. We made the 300-mile return trip home that same night without issue. After another $1,000 in parts and labor, it was the low-mile, well-maintained roadtrip-mobile we hoped it would be, except my wife figured out that she just was just totally burned out on 240s. So away it went to a fortunate new owner for $2,500, and we moved on to a slightly newer rig that has airbags and air conditioning, but alas--no third-row seat in the crumple zone.
