Not a pretty car but for 2 grand seems like a pretty good ride. You can probably get a lot of extra power out of it pretty cheap since it has a turbo. Then you would have a sleeper that no one would ever see coming.

Not sure about what year they are but there are a TON of Volvos in my school parking lot, either 740s or S60/S70s. The S70s are pretty quick (not what you'd expect from the traditional Volvo) my friend says his puts out around 200 horsepower which is pretty good for a high school ride.

I paid $2500 for my '96 BMW so you got a nice deal there.

EDIT: My dad used to have one of those, exactly like yours but it was gold and we also used to have an even older blue Volvo when I was a kid. Since then my dad won't buy anything but Benzes but those were really reliable cars (the blue one was sold long ago and replaced by a 1999 VW Passat and then a Mercedes E320 but the gold one we gave to my aunt and it still runs fine)

Decent looking car KSIMP88. Looks to be in good condition inside and out.

I've got a '98 S70 GLT. It's pretty quick. I got it for about $3700 and have had to put in a lot of money for repairs. But things seem to be running fine now. And I'm on my way to paying my dad back for the money he lent me. It love that car. i''ll have some pics up when it gets nicer out and when I can wash and wax it...
