1990 Volvo 740 GL 4dr Sedan


My son is 18 and preparing for college. The car he came home from the hospital was the car he drove last night to his function and it's still runs strong. Boxy Blue or the tank has seen it all from smashed mailbox post, prom night, babies #2 & #3, vacations etc. I have to say after having several other cars/mini vans over the same period Boxy Blue held up and was the best car purchase I've made dollar for dollar. So the repairs that I may do now are minor, there are plenty of junkyard parts and my mechanic still wants to buy her off me whenever I drive into his shop.

Best Features

The design, although boxy is still relevant

Worst Features

Cupholders would have been nice
