    Biography:
    The S80 is the first car owned, but I grew up around Volvos, as my parents have had the following fifteen, of which I’ve driven eleven, and (remember having) ridden in fourteen:

    1972 242...Dark Blue/Blue Cloth [1]
    1976 244 GL...Berkshire Green/Brown Vinyl [2]
    1976 245 DL (Manuel)...Berkshire Green/Brown Cloth [3]
    1981 244 Diesel...Nougat Tan Metallic/Brown Cloth [6]
    1982 244 GL...Cascade White/Blue Cloth [4]
    1988 244 GL...Silver Grey Metallic/Tan Leather [9]
    1988 745 GLE...Gold Metallic/Tan Leather [5]
    1990 245 DL...Midnight Blue/Blue Cloth [10]
    1994 945 (Turbo)...Classic Red/Gray Leather [8]
    1995 964...Savile Gray Metallic/Gray Leather [7]

    2010 XC70 Blue T6...Caspian Blue/Gray Leather [12]

    We also had a 198? 244 or 264 in Light Blue Metallic/Black Leather parts car.

    When my parents got the 76s, my grandparents bought the 242, and went on to have several more of their own:

    196? 164 (Manual) Dark Blue/Blue Leather
    197? 144 Kansas Red/Red Cloth
    198? 245 Atlantic Blue/Blue Cloth
