First some back ground.
I am in my 50s so probably older than a lot of the folks on here.
I have been into Volvos since about 14. My parents had a 145 , then a 245, then a 240.
I got my first Volvo about 6 months after passing my driving test.
Then had a succession of various Volvos up a 2012 XC70.
My wife ran off with some one else, and cost me a lot of money,
leaving me with little money for a car.
I got , and still use, a 1998 V70R cheep and got it on the road.
But it is not that great body work wise.
But I wanted something a bit newer and less expensive to run.
There for I decided I would get a P2 V70.
I was given a 2003 V70 D5 AWD auto with a knackered gearbox.
I managed to run round in this for a year.
Then a 2002 V70 D5 came my way with a dead engine , so was going to get an engine swap between the two.
But then a 2006 V70 D5 came up very cheep just down the road
The original plan was to get it and part it out , as a parts car.
Once I collected the car the body work was found to in good condition, but mechanical the car was knackered.
I had to collect it with out the wheels, so took a set of mine.
