Up for auction is our beloved 1990 Volvo 240 DL station wagon. It has my personal favorite color combo black exterior / dark charcoal cloth interior.
The exterior looks great from 10 feet away. Upon closer inspection you'll notice the less than stellar paint job. On the top you can see where the old topcoat was peeling underneath the new paint. There is orange peel throughout. Additionally, there has been some less than adequate touch up work done on top of the drivers door and the rear passenger door from where the paint was cracking. The body is as clean as you will find any where. No dents or dings anywhere. She's a southern girl, so there is no rust as well. All the trim is in great shape except for the front passenger wheel trim has some damage. The 2 front tires are in good condition, the rear 2, not so much. It has the factory donut spare in excellent condition.
The interior has the standard cracks in the dash, which have been covered with black gorilla tape. The drivers side map holder is partially broken, and also secured with black gorilla tape. The drivers seat is a bit warped and shows some wear, but very presentable. The passenger seat, back seat, carpet, headliner, and cargo area are all in excellent condition. All the power windows work as they should. The clock, speedometer, odometer/trip all work. The blower motor makes a whining sound on high. The heat will burn you out of the car. The heated seats used to work, but don't seem to now, could be a fuse or.....? The a/c blows semi cool sometimes. It was checked out and the compressor and everything tested fine. I've had 3 240's and not one of them has cooled to my liking. A freon charge might help a little, but I wouldn't expect miracles. All the lights, wipers, etc work as they should. .
At just under 265.000K, she is just reaching her prime. The engine starts on the first try every time, even after sitting a few weeks, and purrs like a kitten. The transmission shifts smooth and functions as it should. The front shocks are shot, and the back ones are not much better. It also needs a right tie rod end and a front end alignment.
New shocks and 2 new tires and I wouldn't hesitate to head across country in this car. These are one of the all time greats when it comes to dependability, and to find one this clean is getting much harder to do.

Volvo 240 throttle body cleaning
Was a little bored this afternoon so decided to post a vid of me cleaning
my 91 Volvo 240 throttle body as part of the maintenance.
2015 Volvo XC90 Factory
Production of the 2015 Volvo XC90 at the plant in Torslanda, Sweden.
Symbolising this historic day in Volvo’s 87 year history, the new XC90
will be the first of its cars to carry the company’s new more prominent
iron mark, which has the iconic arrow elegantly aligned with the diagonal
slash across the grille. Together with the T-shaped “Thor’s Hammer”
DRL lights, the iron mark introduces an entirely new, distinctive and
confident face for Volvo’s forthcoming generation of cars.
The XC90’s larger bonnet with its new topography, the beltline and the
sharpened shoulders connecting with the tattoo-like, new rear lights are
other important design signatures that will be mirrored across the range.
To add more visual muscle from the sides, the XC90 comes with a range of
wheel sizes up to 22 inches.
The top of the range XC90 Twin Engine, which combines a two-litre,
four-cylinder supercharged and turbocharged petrol engine with an electric motor,
offers an unrivalled combination of power and clean operation: around 400
carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of around 60 g/km (NEDC driving cycle).
The XC90’s interior is the most luxurious to have been designed for a
Volvo. The most striking feature is a tablet-like touch screen control
console, which forms the heart of an all-new in-car control system. This
system is virtually button free and represents an entirely new way for
drivers to control their car and access a range of Internet-based products
and services. It also helps create an interior that is modern, spacious and
