Now there's your first mistake.

Your second would be thinking that if your missus wanted a car you or anyone else on the planet could do sod all about it! She bought the car one day when we had nipped out to buy some milk and bread, and for once I'm not joking.

Most of the work on the car was rectifying what some plum in California had done, after the car looks to have been totalled. It was only when the car had been bare metaled that the true horror came to light. I'm only glad we had never hit anything in it!!

How about doing the 760 out as a homage to this volvo

Cool 8)

That would be worth considering if I had a well used 140/240. Doing that to my concours 760? No thanks.

Jon.


Was it designed?! :lol:


What a strange comment, or is intended to be provocative?

Jon.


No, I sincerely thought it was carved from stone :facepalm:

This commercial is currently broadcasted in NL. The purpose is to make people aware they shouldn't be busy with social media during driving.
