To all,<br>My yellow limited edition car has been off the road for 7 years and was somewhat carefully stored. Most of the body and interior is great. There are 100K on it and I needed a truck for work and didn't have the finances for both.<br>Here is what it needs for sure (worn out):<br>Trunk Lid, Headlight Wiper Arm, Exhaust, Complete Brakes, Tires<br>There was a engine lifter clicking also.<br>The air wasn't working.<p>I loved this car, was going to drive it again, but the years slipped away. I know it is not worth a lot and I could buy a newer car, but it was different and the yellow still excites me. Is this a good project car? I have the abitlty to do most of the repairs myself and the finances to buy performance equipment and bring it back for a long term summer driver. <p>I would love your input.<p>Thanks

To ask a bunch of Volvo owners if building a YELLOW is worth doing should always yield a HELL YES response.<p>It really doesn't sound that bad and if you can do most the work that much the better. If it will be a summer driver, definately get the A/C fixed.

Do it, that is an awesome car. If you don't want it, let me know. I could find a home for it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

I dont think anyone on here including me would have a problem with Buying this car from you if you should chose not to want it anymore.
