Got a few more messages bu t no real interest. I then listed it on Craigslist the next day. Not only did I get the typical scam texts/emails, but I actually had three people with real interest. Two came to look and another was from Texas. The second dude gave me a good offer and it's now sold. Best $5 I ever spent.

      I told a buddy how much I was going to list it for and he convinced me to list it higher. Glad I did since I got a lot more than what my original haggle price would have been.
      I had the exact experiance with my 4runner. Not a bite on the forums I posted it to, then about 8 hours on CL and sold for my asking price to the first guy to show up with cash. I should have kept it but having a house bulit.. great timing. lol

      I loved your car, just like mine only mine is Ti grey.

      On the FB groups nearly all of the comments are about how absurd the asking prices are, even when they're totally reasonable or the car is a total unicorn. It's like we're all cheapskates or something lol

      Most of the FB crowd are not serious buyers looking at the typical comments - it's like the poor man's BaT, lol.

      Craigslist is a bit more targeted geographically and doesn't have a comment function which is a plus in most cases IMHO.

      Famine, Earthquakes, Pestilence... Oh, And, Of Course, Non-Affiliated Finds - June 2020

      Not a car, but thought I’d share this with you guys here; last summer, I went to a wedding in Denmark, and one of the songs they played at the party afterwards (which nearly every Danish person knew most of the words to) was about a Volvo B18 engine (from a P210 I’m pretty sure, because lots of the titles also on YouTube call the song “Volvo B18-210”).
      Song’s called “Roger and Over” and has a country vibe, and maybe some of you know it!Don’t know the meaning of the lyrics, although someone explained them to me at the time.
      I forgot about it since then, but it came back to me just now and I thought I just had to share it with you guys too!

      Here it is:

      My car was just stolen. Can't tell you how down I am. It's a '98 V70 AWD stolen last night in Sacramento county, CA close to Antioch which is in the East Bay. California license plate number 5CRR068. I thought I'd post here since you guys search all kinds of car sites and who knows where it could end up. Unfortunately I don't have a current picture and I'm not sure how to post the ones I do have. It is a rare 396/Dark Grey car with charcoal interior. Even though it's AWD it does not have the cross county trim so it looks like a normal '98 V70. Outside it has a wing, volans, jewel headlights, eggcrate grill. It was lowered and has numerous tweaks under the hood. Front seats are from a C70 and the door panels are not delaminated. Has leather shifter and brake handle. Again to the average guy all this probably just looks like it's supposed to be there, but I know you guys would spot it a mile away so I thought I'd reach out. Thanks to you all for reading. Cheers. Sorry for the repost I didn't realize a 2018 thread was at the top?

      Oh man, that really really sucks. I feel for you. I’ll keep a lookout on all the classified sites in case the theives want to sell it, and I’ll also be on the lookout for Volans for sale in that area. I really do hope you find it and get it back. The personal connections we make with our cars are very strong, and I can only imagine what you’re feeling right now. This is probably a stupid question, but did you file a police report? What did they say?

      Was thinking about this local offering to get more familiar with the earlier P80's, but this one is tooooo farrr gone. Should i report this to the Police as "Volvo Abuse"

      They broke into my place of work, which the car was parked outside of. It's a bit of a crazy story, but they stole a ton of sporting goods equipment, two laptops, and a good amount of cash... on the first night. I think they found my keys this night as well. Then they came back the next night, stole a bunch of other stuff from the store and probably loaded it all up in my car and drove off with it. The store hasn't been broken into in 30 years and then it gets hit twice in two nights. From what they stole it's pretty obvious they've been in the store before, but I have a feeling the car was just a opportunity they took advantage of.

      A police report has been filed, but with the police having their hands full right now I know there's not much chance of anything happening. They said there's a chance it will be recovered after they dump it, but i'm in a pretty rural area and I know it wouldn't be too hard to hide if they wanted. If they know anything about cars, there's enough aftermarket parts under the hood that I think they'd realize there might be money to be made if they part some of it out. Definitely gut wrenching. This car had a lot of blood and sweat put into it. They also stole three high end bikes that I'm never going to be able to replace either. F'ing sucks!

      If you have the VIN and the serial numbers of other parts (engine, trans, etc), it might be worth sharing those to help people keep an eye out on part outs.

      Some stuff is gone, but looks like the two-tone seats are still available.

      Rebuilt title from Millennium but that Nordkap looks pretty clean, at least on my phone it does.

      Any thoughts on the pricing??
      €9.200 roughly, seems very reasonable to me.

      Jared,

      A friend's father sold his SM to another friend back in the early 80's. I got to drive it some - and it was basically a sportier version of the standard DS. Very smooth up to about 120. That car had the annoying habit of shutting off at random moments. We once walked off the top of a mountain a dozen miles from nowhere after it just quit on us. And the hydraulics were always failing, so you were left with an inch and a half of ground clearance.

      The same friend briefly owned a metallic blue Daytona 365 coupe. Normally he would thrash his exotics and let his buddies have a go, too. But that one he stashed in an empty warehouse and never drove it at all - just flipped it for good money.

      Go find an SM somewhere and take it for a spin, but do NOT even think about owning it. ymmv...

      My dad had a ID19 Safari (base trim of the DS) for about 15 years. Unfortunately they were brazed together so they had a severe rust problem in our part of the world, and the last 5 years or so he only drove it to move it to new storage locations as he was planning on restoring it eventually. I don't know enough about those cars to understand why there is such a huge disparity in ownership experience from car to car, but the hydraulic system in his functioned perfectly until it was unfortunately flooded in 1992 (the flood management strategy hadn't yet been worked out at our house at the time). If we ever got one I'm sure it'd come in handy that my dad knows his way around the hydraulics.....but, the way prices are going on them, we'll probably never have one, anyway.
