25 years ago I bought my 1st Volvo. The purchase happened shortly after I came upon a wreck where a college girl was rounding a corner at about 40mph and drove into a telephone pole.
The pole was broken in half and sticking up the middle of the engine bay but the cab was completely intact, the windsheld was not even cracked. Any Jap car and she would have been toast. She was in shock and had a bruised nose/forehead but walked away. I had a 240 for my wife within a few months.

I have had 3 240s over the yrs..... ALL are still running with well over 200k miles, although I don't own them anymore.

I had a 1991 240 that's still around with over 400k miles on it. Had 285k-ish when I owned it.
