The first Volvo I ever drove was a 164 back in the early 1970's My next experience was with a 1990 440 Turbo... This was in the north of Sweden in the City of Umeň.
My crazy Swedish friend thought we should test drive one in the snow. Lotsa Fun!!

850R I drove this very car!! Mean Machine! I took this photograph just north of Kaikoura, South Island. Kaikoura is famous for Whale Watching and Dolphins.

I have owned a Volvo 740 Turbo Wagon. I bought it new in Sweden in 1990

Volvo 740

Volvo 740 Turbo Intercooler

These photos were taken in the South West of England
I had the vehicle set up for travelling, with 'fridge, and cooker along with a top box for carrying extra gear.
Normally there was a bicycle on the back as well.
The Swedish tourist number plates were given a two year life in New Zealand. I changed them as I was continually being stopped by the police wanting to know my registration details

I put personalised plates on the car " A FAST 1"

Although I don't own one now, if I were to buy Volvo again I would choose a V70 T5 as it is a driver's car with attitude!!
