Awwwwwwwwwwsome! — Handles great--safe for grandbabies--can camp w/o worrying about gear storage. Love that she is purple--didn't have a for sale sign just took a shot & he gave it up. Poor darling can't drive any more. She has a history of being a party wagon (in 70's) but no evidence of that--she is all original.

Pros: All original--magnificently maintained--purple & safe!

Cons: A little oxidation which will be gone soon.

1977 Volvo 245 Review

One Of The Best Cars Ever Built — Bought used (obviously) about twelve years ago for $500. Another $1,300 to pass inspection. Has been running with only minor problems ever since. Costs about $200 per year in maintenance (tires, oil, parts. I wish they would still produce this model. I would buy one in a minute.)

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Roomy interior for stuff / Exterior size just right / Built like tank

Cons: Poor gas mileage / Not enough power (96 horses)

Perfect Car! By Haldan

The Volvo 245 is a fine specimen. You can throw as much junk in her trunk as you'd like, and she won't complain. She is fun to drive, but only because she has a stick shift. Max speed of about 100mph,... Read More
