Vehicle: 1991 Volvo 740 Turbo 4dr Sedan

I've been a volvo fan ever since I got my friends 850turbo's 0-60 down to 4.2. I found my volvo in a used car lot, $1000. It looks like a piece if junk, it was in an accident. But it funny as hell watching people drop their jaws when they can't keep up. My car wasn't maintained at all, its rough around the edges I had to redo the wiring because some jackass thought making the windows go down when u turn on the radio was funny. Or making the lights work only when i hold the up window button... you get the point, someone abused my baby.

I loved my brick

I'm Canadian, so you'll have to excuse the metric measurements. I purchased the car at 316000km and drove it to a little over 400000. The only reason I sold it was that I was moving and my fiancee and I didn't need 2 cars. Even with high miles, these cars have great bodies and perform amazingly. I'd buy another in a second.

A great car!

This is car is amazing. When I bought the car, it had 167,000 miles, and the power is still great. The power with the turbo is incredible. I have gone around "playing" before in this car, and even with an automatic... this car easily peels out. The interior looks good. I just need to get the leather redone(it is a 13 year old car). The gas mileage is pretty decent. Of course the car is very safe, typical Volvo. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants a cheap, quick, and safe car.
