I Want One.

1993 Volvo 240 Wagon

I don't care what color. Know where there's one for sale?

I had a baby blue 1991, quite a few years ago, and I LOVED it. I've had many vehicles, new, used, nice and not so nice. My Volvo 240 wagon was the ONLY car that I would walk up to and smile... and think to myself "I love my car."

Odd, isn't it? I don't know what it is about the 240 Wagon that draws me in.

They're boxy.

Some would even say ugly.

Paige is begging me not to get one. She thinks they are ugly. Noah says 'they're junk'. Oh no Son, they're a high quality, Swedish made car.

They're very safe, and last for hundreds of thousands of miles, when properly maintained.

They're a quality TANK.

I'm not a granola, or a liberal, but I love the Volvo 240 wagon.

The last year they made them was 1993, then they changed the style. I don't like the newer style. My Volvo wagon had heated front seats. Oh so nice in those cold, Maine winters!

So, anyone out there got a 1993 Volvo wagon (baby blue? I could dream...) for sale? Let me know. I'd prefer a stick shift, but hey, I'm not picky...

Check out the anonymous survey on the side... be honest, and you can choose more than one answer.

Hey where's your AI prediction tonight??? Disappointed..

I think I'm gonna cry with them. I don't even want to predict who I think is going home. Too tight to call it.
