“I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.”

Welp, my obsession with Volvos and 90 degree corners has landed me another Swedish brick in my driveway. I picked up the lovely '98 V90 with ~145k miles you see below for the measly sum of $375 (too bad I couldn't snap pics before the snow hit). Gotta love Craigslist.

Drivetrain runs very well. Interior is filthy but nothing a good cleaning won't fix. With the exception of a dent on the front of the hood, the exterior is immaculate for a 16-year-old wagon. Owner got rid of it due to a lot of small, annoying issues like power seat is stuck, shifter won't go into park, sunroof is stuck shut, tailgate won't stay up, door panel vinyl is peeling off...all very common issues on these old Volvos.

The question now is what do I do with my older '93 945 turbo. The logical thing would be to sell it and have the V90 take its place, but I have never been a very logical person.
