For those who are interested, I’ve written up the Scandinavian saga that is my first two weeks of owning a 17 year-old Volvo.
So, the Volvo I bought yesterday that lost a cylinder firing after 40 miles is back on the road, with a new coil and starter cable. All is right with the world.
At about 2:00 PM this afternoon, I paid $3,990 for this 1999 Volvo V70XC with 145,000 miles, and drove to my office to finish out the day’s work. So far, so good, right?
In which I realize that I would’ve said nicer things about the X5, if I hadn’t had a new Volvo XC90 to drive first.
This makes me so sad. This GTV-6 is one of those legendary cars that I would love to own. Seeing one that has been tossed aside like this, rather than lovingly maintained, just sickens me.
Try o-180 in 3 seconds. That’s not just diesel. That’s turbo diesel. Also, green.
I did another video from footage I took at the Orange County Auto show.
I was driving up to the Orange County Auto Show on Saturday Morning. As I was driving up the I-5 through Camp Pendleton, I saw this driving along.
I went to the OC Auto Show. I made a little video about it. I’ll be making a Part 2 video later this week, since I shot a lot more stuff.
I drove the Volvo XC90, and I LOVED it. I want one, now.
Fresh off Craigslist, a magnificent barn find 1969 BMW 2002. Lovingly stored for years, it has a flashy custom paint job, and this very motivated seller only wants $4,250 for it.
In which I take a look at the Nissan Altima 2.5 S.
There’s an ‘02 Audi Allroad Quattro 2.7T for sale at a local dealer for under $5K. Looks like it’s had all the major work done on it to ensure it’s road-ready. I think I wanna go take a look at it tomorrow.
I need a cheap car to drive on days when I don’t or can’t ride my Triumph. For a 27 year-old car, it still drives pretty good. Needs some fuel injector cleaner, and some TLC on the inside, but it’s currently registered and has clear title.
Here you go. One single Craigslist car ad that displays nearly every error it is possible to make in a Craigslist ad. I can’t even grasp the train of “thought” one must go through to write an ad this devoid of reliable information, and this incomprehensible.
It’s a Station wagon. It is largely brown. Sadly, it has an automatic transmission. And I can’t really get my my mind around the whole lifted, dually thing. Or the $22,500 price tag. On the plus side, it’s apparently tow-capable, as it was originally a Ford F250.
1999 Audi Volkswagen for sale, huh? Thanks for letting us know.
