I live in Washington DC, I was driving home last November from southern Maryland and i saw this interesting Volvo - glad i had a camera with me. Can anyone identify it? or pass me onto more information about this model? <p> <IMG SRC="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3026/3595949541_e6d6083ceb_b.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2450/3596756418_2c72e96d32_b.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Cheers <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Its an old 240 Series Volvo. Some of them were turbocharged. You can find out more about them on the RWD forum here on Swedespeed.

It's a 1982 244 Turbo. Does not have the intercooler, which wasn't introduced until MY83.

Intercoolers were in 1984-1985 models, and perhaps some 83's.

You are correct... it is a 1983. I guess my brain is starting to show its age.
