Just got this car; haven't washed it or vacuumed yet, but it's got some features I've never seen, all on one car. If you know anything about the "Limited", please let me know. I'm especially curious about the brass plaque on the dash (it appears to be a signature). I'm the 3rd owner; 2nd owner said it was special-ordered in Sweden and shipped to the US (California) where its' emissions were modified. It's a GREAT car and I can't wait to get to work tightening up the suspension, fixing some paint blems, etc.<IMG SRC="http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i3/camdata/91%20Volvo%20244%20Limited/P1010040.jpg" BORDER="0"> <IMG SRC="http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i3/camdata/91%20Volvo%20244%20Limited/240LtdTeak.jpg" BORDER="0"> <IMG SRC="http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i3/camdata/91%20Volvo%20244%20Limited/240LtdBadge.jpg" BORDER="0"> <IMG SRC="http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i3/camdata/91%20Volvo%20244%20Limited/240LtdRear.jpg" BORDER="0"> <IMG SRC="http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i3/camdata/91%20Volvo%20244%20Limited/240LtdPlaque.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: 1991 244 "Limited" (vovodad)

vovodad....<p>Neat car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> I have a 90 & 91 ( both over 200k). My memory tells me that the "limited" was not offered in the US. As a matter of fact...I had never heard of it.........but that doesn't mean much <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> ...I think I've forgotten as much as I've learned <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>How many miles?

Thanks for the info, Bob; I've located (with someone's help) a "Limited" registry through VCOA and have made an inquiry.<br>179K miles, every svc stamp in the manual up to the mile. It's a gem. <br>Just washed it; got to try a buff to see what the original paint will do, but I'm very pleased, so far.<br>Thanks, again!<br>I don't have another one under 200K; my '91 245 SE just turned over 208, and it's my baby. the '90 244 is pushing 260K, the '88 245's odometer stopped at 184K (who knows when), and my '85 245 (we call it "Old Paint") odo died at 235K. Volvo for life, indeed.
