Well, today I had a 'special delivery'. Yes a pink 850 R! Happy days.
Now, I heard of this car through eBay, someone messaged me offering it after I asked a question about an item they had listed, I was very surprised!
It has zero history with 206k on the clocks, battery's flat so have no idea how it runs although I'm told it was driven 2 months ago from Birmingham to Ludlow.
MOT expired Nov 2013. Owner died 6 months ago so the family is selling up his collection of Volvo stuff, they were just going to scrap this car!
Apparently he had 2 more in the Birmingham area but the Son in law (who I've dealt with) is yet to see them so once/if I find out more I'll let people know.
Anyway, the car. Not in bad shape considering it's recently few years.
Anybody know more of the car?

From those above photos the paint doesn't look too bad but trust me, it's as flat as a flat thing!

Got a boot full of pound shop tat thrown in for free
Plans? Well I'm not sure currently, I bought it as it's fate was with a date with the crusher so had to do something about that.
Got to get it running first and see if it is worth saving I guess...
