snif, snif....<BR>I'm going off to college next year, and my mom wanted me to have something that was a little more reliable and better for the long haul. I will not be able to have my trusty mechanic either, so needless to say... my baby is now for sale at mike Warner Imports here in Asheville. Probably for about 8 (the price has not been set yet) I will be posting the price and a phone # if anyone is interested. I did get a chance to get the exhaust off, so I will be posting that in the classifieds here in a couple days. I'm now an owner of a 98 4Runner. The change isn't all bad, I'm sure the extra space will come in handy when moving my life around the next couple years. And as far as SUVs go these days, the 4Runner would be my choice. Decent mileage (21) not too big, and will last about as long as I will. Ive been working on a customized tag... I was thinking about VOLVOLES or MISMYT5. I'm really gonna miss being a true part of the Volvo family. This is by far the best automotive forum out there, and now i'm going to have to resort to some other place where half the responses are lude comments about someone's mother.<P>

I wish i could say it wasn't so... but... well... it is.... <P>There is a 242T for sale around here somewhere... I'd have to get a trailer to get it down to savannah though. I have wanted a beater to bring back to life and learn as much as I can about everything in it. My friend has an 82 carrola that he got for $250. Its the funnest little car to beat up and fix again. Too bad it doesn't have a tag, title, or insurance... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>Michael, I'm sure your right, my next car might very well be a volvo. The only thing for me is that my car will be chosen by headroom. My only complaint about my 850 was i had to lay the seat down to sit up (i'm 6ft 9) My aunt's T6 had tons of headroom though... so who knows... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><BR><P>

Hey man,<P>Sorry to hear that... o well, cars come and go, I know I'd hate to see my 850 leave my house, but o well! I'm sure you'll get another Volvo! It stays in yo for life, at least someone will be getting a nice car, and hey! A 4Runner, it could be worse!<P>
