Default Look what I bought!!!!

So I purchased this yesterday. 201,554 miles
It has the turbo 4 in it.

I know it's not the right forum, but I'm an S70 owner so I thought I'd share it here!

1991.






It's slower than dirt. But man, it's a fun car.
------------------------------------------------------
1987 Alfa Romeo Platinum w/ Verde body
1998 Volvo S70 GLT
1991 Volvo 780 Bertone Coupe!

Man, Bertone coupes have a soft spot in my heart! I was saddened not too long ago when I saw a black one on blocks at a you pull salvage yard! Looks good! Do you know the background of it?

Is the turbo seized? Those things are supposed to be pretty fast.

Nice grab. I use to own a 262c. The last time I test drove a 780 it was TRASHED. The suspension was shot the stereo volume was going up and down radomly and it was just to torn up to purchase.

Hope your's is in better shape. The car will be pretty fast once you get the motor running right.

He said it was pretty slow, maybe he took it for a spin around the block and hasn't made it back home yet.

Good point, he still may be backing out of his drive way.

Does anybody know what the engines can take? My friend has a 780 and I'm thinking about buying HER a MBC for it
