    Volvo 123GT. Sexual. Check those wheels.




    I love how my estate is like a little pocket of retro heaven amongst all the finance-buy 316/318i and 1.6 Focus types...

    The Baleno next to it would be pretty pro with some nicely dished rims instead of those three spokes...

    Must admit that is a nice looking car. :) Lots of chrome to clean though!

    I sense a thread full of "don't see anything special" coming.

    Nice 'Zon though. Baleno = Balldust!

    I saw a P1800S outside my house the other day, but it was gone by the time I popped out again with my camera. :(

    Me and some friends once explored an old abandoned car garage and there were loads of very old volvos, old rovers and cars i hadn't even heard of (but sounded and looked old!) (similar age to as pictured i guess, if not older) with keys in the gloveboxes!

    Was a few years back now, but would of been interested to find out what their story was and if they are still there.

    lol, good soundtrack then at least. I think it looks allright but 'sexual' might be taking it a bit far unless its got 200bhp per tonne or something nice like :D

    I had a balero on my car shortlist a few years back, alot of car for the money though apparently a bit boring to drive?

    Welcome back Penski!

    I normally *get* 99% of the cars you post, but not this one I'm afraid.
