So currently im rolling dirty in a 1994 850 t-5 but recently after seeing a c70 coupe down at the shop i work at ive set my heart on getting one. Problem is, i cant seem to find one. Idealy i would like a 1998 saffron with charcoal interior, however im content i wont find one. <p>Does anyone know a good place to look? Im looking for one less than 6,000 hopefully. And with dark interior. No convertables.<br>And just a note, im in Colorado but id be willing to travel accross 3 or so states.<p>Thanks!

Re: (Borders II)

Keep an eye on CL out here in Oregon. Many nice rust free coupes come up and we're only one time zone over. <br><A HREF="http://portland.craigslist.org" TARGET="_blank">http://portland.craigslist.org</A><p>Current examples:<br><A HREF="http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/ctd/1300910519.html" TARGET="_blank">http://portland.craigslist.org....html</A><br>\<br><A HREF="http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/ctd/1297018929.html" TARGET="_blank">http://portland.craigslist.org....html</A><br> <p>

Best place to look is probably So Cal.

I've been looking for one for about 5 years. Only seen about 3 for sale, and they were trashed. The good ones seem to be on the east coast, like most of the good 70 series volvos. <p>There is currently one for sales in Carlsbad for about $4,500 bucks, but it need about $5K in repairs and paint. I would consider it a "clunker".<p>As for a convertible in saffron, sadly only availabe in Europe/UK. <p>

I've got a gorgeous (interior/exterior/mechanical) 2004 HPT Convertible that is a creampuff.<p>But.......it's not for sale. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If I did though, the price would most likely not be realistic.<p>Bumper has dead bugs (prior to a wash/wax)<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.laspeedgarage.com/download/file.php?id=225&mode=view" BORDER="0"><p> <IMG SRC="http://www.laspeedgarage.com/download/file.php?id=226&mode=view" BORDER="0"><p> <IMG SRC="http://www.laspeedgarage.com/download/file.php?id=227&mode=view" BORDER="0"><p><br> <IMG SRC="http://www.laspeedgarage.com/download/file.php?id=228&mode=view" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Borders II)

I'm thinking of selling my 2000 C70 coupe. It has the HPT and is just broken in with 305000 miles. It has the original turbo, rad, exhaust etc. I am looking at a R wagon.

Notice how good the rims look because the inside edge of them is clean? Most people don't clean that part on 5 spokes. Keep them clean Justin!
