I don't post on here much b/c I resid more on VS but I figured I'd throw it up for sale here as well. Here's the story on the car....sorry to be so wordy, but I want to be up front about everything.<p>The car was purchased in Jan 04. In April 04 my body shop (found when I was having it detailed) found out that the car had been cut half way down the C piller and underneath the rear seats and another 850 rear end was welded to the rest of the body. I then started the process of sueing the parties involved in the sale, which is still going on. However, I have been given the ok by my lawyers to sell the car.<p>Here's the deal. It is in fact a true R. No, it does no have the R front spoiler or R rear spoiler (if it did it would have been on the yellow already). Yes the interior is original R spec and the volans are on it. The car also has the 15-17psi Upsolute chip in her. The car has 61K on her. The car hasn't been on the road since Aug 04.When it was driven though, it was very strong. I remember it did have that dreded ABS light come on though from time to time (need that rebuild if I do recall on the computer for the ABS??). It was deemed unsafe to drive per my shop b/c of the pour welding could eventually cause the car to fall apart. It has been sitting at my shop since all of this and has been started a few times (started it in Nov 05). Now, I'm sure I could strip the car and make some good money on all the stuff, but I don't have time for that. I want to sell it as a whole and let someone else part it out.<p>I'm sure if you wanted you could drive it, but I don't suggest it unless you plan on rewelding or putting a roll cage in. I will have papers drawn up by my lawyers stating specifically that whoever buys this car cannot persue me for any loss sustained b/c of the condition of this vehicle. The car does not currently hold a salvaged title (I would have never bought the car if it did) but should according too my contacts.<p>I have no way of transporting the vehicle b/c I have no plates on it so that would need to be done by the buyer. I want to sell this fast before the car starts to age more by sitting there and having those parts no good to anyone. by the way, the tires on the car too have about 75% tred left but I dunno if they flat spoted b/c of sitting that long.<p>Anyways, let me know guys and I'll do the best I can to answer and questions or concerns. I'm sure most people can vouch on VolvoSpeed that I'm a reasonable, honest guy and I won't beat around the bush on things, especially something like this. If you are looking for a starter project car and are handy w/ the torch, this is for you!<p>Here are a few pics of the car.<p>Please, only reasonable offers only. No offense to VS but most of the offers were an insult.<p>-Ryan<p><A HREF="http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j65/NFGplayboy/the%20black%20car/thepicthatstarteditall.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://i77.photobucket.com/alb...l.jpg</A> (when I first bought the car)<p><A HREF="http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j65/NFGplayboy/the%20black%20car/Picture004.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://i77.photobucket.com/alb...4.jpg</A> (welding done as you can see the C-piller)<p><A HREF="http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j65/NFGplayboy/updated%20pics%20of%20black/Picture002.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://i77.photobucket.com/alb...2.jpg</A> (where she sits now)<p><A HREF="http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j65/NFGplayboy/updated%20pics%20of%20black/Picture007.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://i77.photobucket.com/alb...7.jpg</A> (rims are curbed, but could easily be repaired)<p><A HREF="http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j65/NFGplayboy/updated%20pics%20of%20black/Picture006.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://i77.photobucket.com/alb...6.jpg</A> (lot damage <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> )<p><A HREF="http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j65/NFGplayboy/updated%20pics%20of%20black/Picture008.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://i77.photobucket.com/alb...8.jpg</A><p><A HREF="http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j65/NFGplayboy/the%20black%20car/Picture050.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://i77.photobucket.com/alb...0.jpg</A> (interior is very clean)<p><br>btw, I have more pics so if you want to see more let me know!<br>

Re: (NFGplayboy)

I don't think you were insulted, this is a parts car only.<br>Yes, you got hosed and you should win in whatever court you wind up in<br>However, the fact remains that it's a 10 year old parts car that for all intents is undrivable
