Here are examples of the Volvos carved from stone
by a certain Jan Wilsgaard.
Missing the best looking of all of them;
It's a shame that they then apparently asked asked some visually impaired women for their opinion and spoiled the final design, that prototype looks spot on - much as I love them the 850 / 70s have always looked "almost right" in my opinion. Engineering wise they're superb, designed and built with a long service life as a priority unlike everything that followed.
Can't see the image - won't load, but would be interested in it. edit: and now I can see it! Just to add, a few enthusiasts used the "egg crate" style grills in 850s and 70 classics.
Visually, my favourite would have to be the original / classic C70 for looks alone. Although I do like the blend of new and old in the 850s and classic 70 series in general.
I would have always liked one of the original C70s, was always reading about issues with the doors being a bit heavy for the mounts, though, which put me off a little bit.
