Souvenirs... My First Volvo: Volvo C70 T5, from year 2000.

Oct 01, 2019,09:45 AM

A car I bought in 2003, which I kept three years. The line was super elegant, especially the 3/4 front side, the engine was top ( 2, 3 l prepared by TWR ) with its 250 HP, which was something at that time. 

And the comfort was great. 

The big issue? The turning circle, which was poor, and combined to the size of the car ( more than 4, 70 m ), it was a pain to park in some places, or to drive in the small and narrow streets.

In the UK we had the 850 T R. An estate that was blistering. I always lusted after that one, but it was never to be.

My first was a 242DL with a 4 speed

It was a hand me down from my parents. I got it with over 250,000 miles on the clock and proceeded to add another 150,000. Despite my best efforts, it was sold with the clutch it left the factory. Awesome cars! Best, Wojo

Did you know that in 1979 Norway and Sweden agreed the the Norwgian government should take over 40% of the shares in Volvo in exchange for oil rights in Norway. The shareholders said No.

Now the oil fund in norway just has a market value of NOK 9.718.612.000.000,- Maybe a wrong decision for Volvo and a great outcome for Norway 😂 Just some fun facts!!!
