DT’s Christmas Star: 1985 Volvo 240DL Wagon

I’d love to post every tip that we get into the DT inbox (well, maybe not the strange “missed connection” links that Kaibeezy always sends in…those we’ll keep for…ummm…nevermind). The point is…I’d post every single tip if I had the time, but I’ve got a job and a mortgage and kids that need to be driven to soccer practice and Buicks that need maintenance and a tinnitus in my right ear from welding on a muffler filled with unburnt exhaust gases and then there are those “missed connections.” Regardless, despite that, incongruently, I’ve got to report an event on the level of a cosmic conjunction, similar to the 2020 Christmas star when Jupiter and Saturn were seen on top of each other late last year. This next car was tipped by not just one, but by two legends of car hunting, juggernauts of the DT tips line — imagine Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan teaming up to kick some ass at the same time. Yes, that level of awesome. This next car was tipped simultaneously by both FuelTruck and Rock On! Find this 1985 Volvo 240DL Wagon offered for $3,600 in Palo Alto, CA via craigslist.
