Here’s a great story from the Hannibal Courier-Post about a lady named Dolores Treat who has amassed 400,000 Miles on her ‘Volvo.’ She bought it used in 1989 and it has seen service ever since. They change the oil every 3000 miles and the car has never been in an accident. I would assume that there hasn’t been a major repair on it either, other that having the seats reupholstered. This is the kind of article that we love to talk about. The sad thing is, they never mentioned the model and year of the car. I might have to dig a little deeper on this story.
Seriously though. Let me know if I missed the model and make.
Update: HMC’s Volvo Expert Paolo was all over this story. Within moments of me posting it, he was able to tell it’s a 240DL. Check out how he did it in the comments. Thanks again Paolo. You really know your classic Volvos. Wow, hard to imagine a car from 1989 being classic. I am old.
