    The Turk

    Well it's come to this I'm now the proud owner of 3 volvos
    After a lovely little run down to Dorset I picked myself a lovely little gem



    Loaded the little stinker up and got her home

    Gave her a quick wash and clean and she is starting to look ok
    She does need a lot of work but a vac and polish and a few bits and bobs and I'll be a happy 855 T5 owner


    She is still full of dog hair and smell but with a little time and effort I think I got a basis of a tidy project
    Much thanks must go to Martin (MRP) for going to check her out and then not running away with it before I got there lol

    Haha, no danger of MRP running away with it, he doesn't buy, cars, he just gets given them.

    Looks a good project Geoff!
    What's the plans?
    Seems the trend to have multiple volvos, I've not given up on my mrs getting one yet.
    I think if Martin is given cars then fair play to him, I've only been given one car & to be honest it was a lot worse than either of his.
    I don't see why the ribbing tbh Steve, that's one of the reasons Martin avoids this place now.
    Pick on frankie, he bites back.

    Looks alright that, Geoff

    Same colour as my first 850. Still the car I regret selling the most, even after... Ooh...must be 10 years!
