      Took a worthy potential new owner to look at and test drive the wagon today.



      Fired right up!

      We cleaned the car out and did a clandestine test drive on some very quiet back roads and it looks like it's going to a worth home. Friend of ours who's had many volvos but this will be his first T5M and a me7 one at that! He's owned more cars than nautic t5m wagons like this were imported (19 t5ms)

      Plans for it?

      Plaid headliner and a cat back and slowly work on the cosmetics since it's solid mechanically.

      JaredR/ScottishBrick's 1999 Nautic Blue V70 T5 M56 Rescue Project

      I'm once again the steward of this wonderful wagon.



      While I like Perfo, this needs more pizzazz. BBS? OZ? Get the comets back?

      First up. Heater core, new front tires and an alignment. But I might lower it on H&R springs first. Might not.

      Some goodies headed its way as well as a comprehensive detail.

      We're taking it back to make it ship shape and hopefully find a forever home. Third times the charm?

      I was really sad when ScottishBrick sold it. But now nautic story can go on.
      The best days for this wagon are definitely yet to come.
      My vote is for comets.

      JaredR/ScottishBrick's 1999 Nautic Blue V70 T5 M56 Rescue Project

      Since this wagon is almost already fully R interior converted and has acquaintances with comets.......





      I have good incentive to make this into the "SE" variant T5/R that MY 1999 should have been. With improvements naturally but no hackery!

      Nah that whole arm of the project got sold off to fund other projects. We were gonna get another one but then we sold the car instead. But now here we are again lol.

      The interior was full of junk last time we got it that needed to be sorted and liquidated so we never got any decent pics. It's not going to be living at Hounddogger's place this time so maybe we'll actually get something done.

      I'd say Pewter fits that trio better.
      BTW, what happened to your XC?

      By the time you are done with this one, it will be a FWD MT VR in Nautic; basically, my personal unicorn. Trade for the Venetian?

      Indeed. I love the Venetian. And will continue to protect it, and worry about it when I can’t see it parked. It’s crazy. The color glows. And makes me feel warm inside.

      But... Nautic is so... dark?

      Hard to put into words. Said better by others.

      We grow accustomed to the Dark —
      When Light is put away —
      As when the Neighbor holds the Lamp
      To witness her Good bye —

      A Moment — We Uncertain step
      For newness of the night —
      Then — fit our Vision to the Dark —
      And meet the Road — erect —

      And so of larger — Darknesses —
      Those Evenings of the Brain —
      When not a Moon disclose a sign —
      Or Star — come out — within —

      The Bravest — grope a little —
      And sometimes hit a Tree
      Directly in the Forehead —
      But as they learn to see —

      Either the Darkness alters —
      Or something in the sight
      Adjusts itself to Midnight —
      And Life steps almost straight.

      Will be a me7 manual fwd R....what should have been made. You could get a 99 fwd auto R but I don't think any manuals exited.

      Model year '99 was AWD + auto only. But '98 had all combinations.

      No but if there had been, this is what it would have been. The pure evolution of the p80 platform "R" without pandering to the skibaru crowd and diluting the experience with awd and slushboxes.

      Dont worry it wont be called an R or badged an R and its not a USDM R color.

      I mean you could order a Nautic R here

      but badging it as an R would be super lame.

      I'm more comfortable thinking P80 market values in Euros than USD at this point....if that tells you anything.....
