Default Keeping it in the family - 1987 240

Greetings!

The Volvo that brings me here today is my 1987 240 GL sedan. My parents bought it as the second owners right around the time I was born in 1992. Skipping ahead, the car sat for quite a while, but now I've been driving it for a bit and I'm looking to care for it some. It has about 157k miles at this point, so it has its fair share of old age issues, but its still going.

Welcome! Sounds like an interesting story, it's nice to see a car staying in the same family for decades. Hope you can share some pictures too!

Welcome to the forum, that's impressive mileage! Good to hear how reliable your GL sedan is to you! Can't wait to see pictures.

Thanks! I hope to get some pics posted while the weather is still okay.

Also wanted to say I just bought a pair of rack + pinion bellow boots from your site last night. Its been an overdue job, mine are kaput.
