My first and only car is a 1986 Volvo 745 Turbo Wagon with M46 4spd + overdirve. It is dark gray with tan interior that is part leather and part checked velor that I've heard was only somthing they did that year. I think the seat looks nice but I want to replace the center velor section with blue leather. Why blue? Because then it will match my shift knob, AM/FM/CD headunit, sub box, turbobrick sticker, city lights, backlit emblem, and the center caps of my wheels.
I have a website, maybe someday I will start building it and put pics of my car on it.

I had that same experience. My dad bought my car on 4-99 and for the first couple months it was in the shop every other week. After a new radiatior, water pump, thermostat, multiple belts and hoses, turbo (that was expensive
), battery, and a couple other electical problems the car seems to run just fine. About a week ago I broke the clamp on the battery lead which I fixed for $2.99. I told my dad with all the money he spent to keep my car running it would have been chaeper to buy a 850r. I found one up in Canada with a stick for $15k canadian which is only like $10K american. Even though I love my car I am temped to go look at it. I talked to a dealer in the US and he said that the car only needed the EPA sticker to come into the country. Does it have the US EPA sticker?
