How Your Car Sits

Recommended Posts

Loved that wagon, Josh.

It also showed to me that a C70 bumper can look good on a V. :wub:

Haha, thanks. I liked the bumper back in the day but I think my opinion has changed as of now. The curvature of the C70 bumper just doesn't sit right with the boxiness of the wagon and vice versa, IMO.

I would guess the same about my 98 V70 T5 M... couldn't have been more than 10 of em... especially with all the shit I did to that damn car

Looks like it, My buddy Matt bought it from him, them my buddy Steve bought it from him and brought it to Wilmington, Then he traded it in on a Tundra, and the dealership wanted nothing to do with it. My buddy Brent (who gave me his 99R with the bad motor) found out it was at his friends dealership and got them to sell it to me for $2000, to get it off his lot

Borrowed a dealer plate at lunch today and went and got the bbq out of storage. Took her big old rip

Hit 24psi and promptly blew the iac hose off. Installed new hose i'd been putting off in this parking lot and took a pic. Then the smiles continued

 

Love this car.  Glad to see it's still alive and kicking

You are that lucky.  This car has quite a story :laugh: I did a little digging and found some posts by Mike (the guy who owned it before Justin)  

Here are a few old threads talking about your wagon:
