I like most of em, there's something cool about unusual cars, people used to say my 940 was a grandads car and my 850 but they soon changed there mind after a once around the block, Volvo turbo power is heavenly, plus there so darn reliable unlike the many other cars I've had :D

Cheap, RWD, old, tunability.

It has more appeal now, but those are the main reasons. I do like original 242's though for their awesome looks plsu all of the above.

Reliable, well equiped, and most of all cheap.

Not a massive fan of the newest stuff, but from the 940 back, there is lots of cool. 8)

I WILL have a high powered 940 attack brick one day.

Same here

My dad's had volvos (740 estates) since before i was born and i've always liked them. 300's seem the cheapest to insure so when i wanted a new car i got the GLT
'88 360 +T LSD - sold
'87 760 TDI (D24TIC) - sold
'04 V40 D sport (F9Q, decat, Remapped, launch control)
