COLOR (you neglected to say) and a good, not shadowy picture would be real nice for that kind of money

Re: 1998 V70 T5M - One of a Kind, modded more than you ever thought possible. (300+_T5R_855)

Sorry for the omissions guys. <p>The car is #412 Tropic Green Metallic. It's very hard to replicate the actual color of the car in pictures.. <p>The car has 113K Miles. The front seats are out of a 2000 V70R, as are the door panels.. the interior is flawless. <p>The front bumper was repainted and rear lip added in April. The car has the biggest front brakes of any Volvo in north america. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y236/98S70R/V70side.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

I know there is going to be a <B>VERY</B> happy owner whom ever buys this. Good luck Kevin and Congrats to the buyer. <p>BTW this car is one in a million but the 98 V70 T5M is one in less than 500. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>-Will

None for 2000, and VERY few for 99 so I would still guess no more than 50-65 for the country (98)
