Resale vs repair and mod cost

Recommended Posts

This is off topic I know but I have to say this. Been told a lot that doing work on my s70 is pointless because I won't get me money back on resale. I personally don't care. I just really love this car. I don't plan on selling it. Why would I. I can drive this car forever and always have a badass car. So yeah it might not be worth it for an investment but I'm not investing here. I'm just in love with a Volvo. So I'll be here in Eugene Oregon turning my nose up to the herds of Outback owners wasting money on my old girl enjoying life. That's all.

Can't blame ya... people care too much about resale value. If you want to build a car, build a car! Just don't expect to recover your funds.

I know I couldn't make any money on my V70R, but that's not stopping me from dumping more money into it.

I think I've dumped 20k into my 850 over a course of 10 years. And it still probably wouldn't fetch over 4k.
