1974 Volvo 240Review
It Was A Really Well Built Car Nobody Wants To Drive. — A sluggish ugly tank of a car (it probably weighed as much as our 15- passenger Dodge family van). The seats were so low, the belt line was nearly even with my shoulder when I sat in the car. It looked remarkably like a brick in color and shape. Yeah, not my favorite former ride... On the other hand, everything still worked when I bought it in 1992, and all the wear was in the seats and the paint finish. I probably could have buffed out the paint had I cared to or even thought to, lol.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Unmatched in absolute solidity and gravitas.
Cons: The fashion police would arrest you for driving this machine.

I am indeed satisfied with it's performance. It can do burnouts and can still defeat many other cars in the market. Furthermore, it can also drift perfectly. The build quality of this car is serious... Read More
