As I'm sure everyone knows, Volvo traditionally had an image of being an older persons car.<P>When I bought mine, the salesman was particularly chuffed that I was only 22 and said that its the "younger" market they are trying to attract.<P>Obviously I'm not trying to get too personal, but what ages are we looking at for C70 members here?

I think mid 20s is about right for this forum's C70 owners. Few in their teens, but mostly in their 20s and some in their 30s I believe.

I'm 19, i'm probably definetely on the younger end of C70 drivers. There is one more C70 here at my college, a black drop-top, and I THINK (judging from the timing that I see it parked in the garage) its a student also.

19, inching up on 20. Fell in love with the C70 frosh year of hs when it was being marketed. My love never faded. I told myself that if I ever strike it rich, that's the car I will get, then all I will need is the greatest girl of all time. Well, worked my way up in the dental field so I can afford to pay for it with plenty of dough to spare, the same day, I won the girl (she had no idea I had the car, so it's not my car she's in love with). It's truly the ultimate threesome, haha. I still can't find the link to hook up my digi cam but when I do, I have a good number of pics of the car, as well as the girl occupying the car. Dispite what many guys think, a girl can look good while driving a sports car, trust me, I taught her to race my car well, it pulls.<P>

I am 35. I bought my 2001 C70 Special Edition Coupe with 2 miles on it. It has 13k on it now and I am ready for the IPD ECU upgrade with the sport exhaust.<P>

I can see this thread can turn into something we can use again to track how many active C70 owners we have on Swedespeed. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">
