First Volvo was an abandoned 1958
PV544. Towed to my college apartment,
started the PV544 and it ran with
absolutely no problems for three
years. However, the 70s and 80s
werent to kind on Volvo quality and I
soon discovered Japanese auto value.
So why the V70R? For one thing
Japanese cars are a commodity. High
quality commodity for sure, but not
very unique character. Also, I missed
having the versatility of a wagon. I
just picked up the V70R. It's exactly
what I was looking for. Unique
combination of luxury, safety,
practicality, and pure adrenaline rush
with 300 HP and super low-end torque.
This car is a joy to drive.
