This is the most expensive classic Volvo ever (seriously ever).   It’s an original ‘73 Volvo 1800ES, with just 13,000 miles on the clock.  It recently sold for a record $92,400 at Bonhams Concours d’Elegance auction in Greenwich, Connecticut - paulgraz would approve.

It’s a 245, in orange, with a stick.  Maybe the seller didn’t need to do an awesome video ad, but he ended up with the best classified ad in the history of mankind…

File this one under “Awesome Amazons”…

According to an article in this month’s Car and Driver, the best car for 24 Hours of LeMons is a Volvo 240.  Well, yeah, duh…

The Volvo 850 Estate caused quite a stir in the BTCC in the early 90’s. Not only was it fast, it routinely outclassed sedan cars which were much lighter.
On a side note, check out their stance… shit.

Of course. Volvo wagons routinely outclass sedans on a daily basis! :-)

Who remembers riding in that 3rd row rear facing seat in the back of a wagon?  Great new commercial Volvo!
