• One thing I always wondered, is how do the license plates get to the point of being unreadable? Whenever I see that, it looks like someone just peeled off the paint. I have a hard time believing it just happens if you don't touch the plates.

  • Your draconian smog laws make me happy I live in Ohio. Our car emission laws basically boil down to "don't ask, don't tell" unless you live in one or two lucky counties.

    On the other hand, that Volvo would be considered "nearly rust free" up here.

  • "Perfect for an engine swap" means that you could put a badass gas engine in it and it would still be on the books as a diesel that doesn't need smog checks.

  • On what planet does it make sense to EXEMPT diesels from emission testing?

    Anyway, I am surprised that you left out that lovely interior shot:

  • I've dealt with this seller before – he always has a healthy fleet of Volvos around including some really nice older ones. I think this diesel wagon was his workhorse / truck for the past few years. The low, low price is almost too low considering the diesel title.
