Yest it does. I bought "new" (1989) volvo 740 (http://volvo.atroszko.pl/gallery740.htm)because my son was born 2 months ago and I needed station-wagon, but Volvo 343 stays with me :)
It's part of family already.

The same here. It's 3 years alredy since my car painting and many rust in the bottom of the doors came back.

Those pictures look like they are out of the original volvo sales booklets! Yellow is a good colour for a 343!

I agree. All the wacky 70s colours suit a Mk1 really well - yellow, orange, green ... even beige and brown ;-)

I'm in Falmouth. I think I might be the only 300 in the district now. Some time since I saw another one in the area.

No theo I don't. I shall watch out for it. Where exactly did you see it, might go for a look around. I can't remember when I last saw one around Falmouth.

And to you sir :D

I genuinely believe yours is the nicest colour 300 i've seen yet, is that a factory colour?

Very clean and tidy looking car in general, good stuff.

Whats the matter with the car i'm driving can't you tell that it's out of style?
