1983 Volvo 340 Review
Volvo 343 Dl — Inherited rom my dad when I was 17 - not bad really 1.4 68 Bhp and rear drive with a De-deion rear axles, was good fun in the snow and ICE tho I did manage to bend the rear passenger side wheel sliding round a bend a little too fast with a few of the TTE guys in the back when following gav down to the cinema one lunch time from Carlet Park. On the whole not a bad car, and it lasted me a good few years -it did end up with 2 100 Watt not road legal spot lights on the front too
Pros: My 1st Car
Cons: My 1st Car ;)
