1984 Volvo 740Review
Eot -- Our Lovely Volvo 740 Estate — If this car can manage the Crumball rally, fully laden with people and stuff, it deserves a place on your driveway. Unless you care about what the neighbours think.
Pros: Lots of space
Cons: Handles like a boat, accelerates like a boat and stops like a boat (only when you forget you need brake pads until half way down a swiss mountain)

A Very Reliable Car And A Pleasure To Drive
When i got the car, I had to replace the radiator but was fine when fixed. It had a noisy petrol pump which was eventually fixed. This car was very easy to drive as it was automatic, although a manual... Read More

Quick & Safe Volvo
This was my first car, and I loved it! A Turbo that you could feel and hear that was fitted to a "TANK"! It took to much work to keep it running. Always in the shop. Loved it, but it nickled and dimed... Read More
Pimp (depending On Model, Colour, Spec Etc).
