Hello every. It's nice to see a bunch of Volvo lovers. :) I just purchased a 1998 V70 T5 in February of this year, and I've gotten nothing but sarcastic remarks from friends. Being 21, and living in Southern California, everyone wants a "cool car"... but I've had my eye on one of these estates for years. Ironically enough, this car is faster than most of the cars that other kids my age have their eyes on. Anyways, I've always loved these boxy cars, ever since they were racing them in the ETCC in the mid 90s. Well, I guess I've said enough about me. If I can figure it out, I'll try to post some pictures of the car. Oh, and... I feel unique because the T5 that I have is a stick, not auto. I took me months to find one of these. It turns out that the automatic trans was the preferred option in the US. It was near impossible to find a stick!

Hey, ferbis.

Don't worry about your friends' remarks. THe minute you smoke them, they'll be in awe.
Hahahha. Take them for a spin, and they'll prolly get one for themselves.


Welcome!
