As I'm sure everyone knows, Volvo traditionally had an image of being an older persons car.

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.

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.

I'm surprised it's that low, but I suppose you are looking for people who own a C70 AND frequent the internet.

Until 5 minutes ago I considered myself a 'young' C70 driver at 31.

Pesky kids....

Mid 20's is younger than I'd expected & probably explains the amount of tuning and racing that goes on here...

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.

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.

I can see this thread can turn into something we can use again to track how many active C70 owners we have on Swedespeed.
