1985 Volvo 760Review
A Good Solid Friend — It's a fun, smooth ride. With fuel injection boost, accelerates when you want it to. The exterior is "Volvo Classic" with a box shape, but solid handling. The fun story I like to tell is that one day I locked myself out. Called AAA. The young whippersnapper that showed said, "no prob, I'll have you back in the car in under two minutes." With a red face, it took the guy two and a half hours to hand my keys back to me! They don't make 'em like they used to.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Solid, easy drive.
Cons: Seat leather & plastic portion of seats wore out quickly.

An Opportunity Missed For Many!
A bit of a barge! It can be hustled fairly quickly through country A & B roads, turbo pulls well, and gearbox is smooth. Very much like an arm chair, with heated black leather seats. Very well p... Read More
It's A Volvo: Dependable And Expensive
I had this car for a year. Unfortunately, it was previously owned by someone who didn't know how to take care of cars. Still, I got some use out of it. It had a lot of bells and whistles (sunroof, pow... Read More
760 That Wasn't That Good
2nd 760! This one was bought as a quick stop gap. It was like the 1st one, but somehow not a good? Mid Met Blue & black leather didn't suit it. Had been in the south of France, and everything worked (... Read More
