      Dang. I bought my oldest daughter one of these when she was in college, an '87. Of course, I was the one who wanted it. I can't believe she drove it, buy hey - it was free.
      She got clobbered at school while sitting at a red light, by a realtor driving an '80's Mercedes. One of those big-ass tanks. It was like Clash Of The Titans. Both cars totalled, nobody got hurt!

      I didn't love that 760 as much as I thought I would. It was a one-owner, an elderly guy's son was selling it for him. I thought I really got a deal, but it hadn't been maintained really.
      The car looked beautiful, but the turbo seals were shot and the breather system was stuffed. The trans was on its way out. It desperately needed The Volvo Front-End Rebuild.
      And, it was so heavy, even with the turbo it couldn't get out of its own way.

      The car was silver exterior and black interior. Driving it, you felt like Gordon Gekko.

      It was PURE PIMP.

      Whaaatt? Is that 424? I thought that color was developed for the T-5R, which this car predates.

      Yup. 960s got some crazy special stuff and that one is clearly an OSD car.

      Emailed the seller and it's not OSD. Guy says his mom bought the car at the local dealer and there were 11 Platinum 960s in stock on the east coast so they shipped the nearest one to her.

      No, it's not that bad......except for the projector retrofit. That's super sketchy. I'd love to see what that beam pattern looks like.

      You might be pleasantly surprised actually. I've seen good results of projectors added behind the older style fresnel lenses. Obviously clear glass on the low beam would be preferable but that kind of means you need a set of jewels to make into a projector retrofit properly to retain the high beam.
