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 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!!
