I am a Volvo lover and that's a great car, you have done such a good job. These cars are easily capable of keeping up with modern traffic and in comfort and safety.

My cousin ran a pair of V70 estates ferrying air crew around, over 5 years each car amassed a total mileage of almost 500,000. Neither of them had the running gear changed just service items ... constantly. One of them is still tootling around in Norfolk somewhere.

Thanks for posting this up.

Hi, wow that looks great!. Love these old buses.....I have an old Passat estate that I do all my running around in for work. It’s nothing like the condition that this is in though.

Many thanks everyone for all your kind words. It's been fun bringing this car back up to standard. When I bought it my mate told me not to, he said I should seek out and buy the T version. Of course I ignored him as I could see under the year's neglect of the previous owner that there was something a little special waiting to be revealed


A few of the engine bay which again I've taken back to factory specification
