Default New car!!!! (Non Peugeot)

I know, I know, it was only a few weeks ago I bought the 307, but as it isn't really mine and I had a few quid spare this month I thought I'd sink it into a bit of a dream car while I was still drunk and the idea was still fresh.

I have 2 great friends (twins) who's Dad sadly passed away in December just gone and they've inherited a lot. One item is a silver 2005 Volvo C70 convertible, a car I've detailed in the past and admired and Jacob has decided to start using it and developed a master plan for an epic road trip to the French Riviera. I thought wow, great, but I was hesitant about taking Pugly. Not that I'm embarrassed about it, but if he's got a convertible car, I ought to have one too even though another friend is bringing his 207sw HDi as a support car and kit carrier, the idea was just too tempting so I hit fleabay and today went to sunny Liverpool to hand over just 980 for this sexy beast









It's a 2000 W reg C70 2.0 LPT with 112k otc and in immaculate condition. Unfortunately, the number plate doesn't come with it but never mind. Can't wait to start using it; the drive home with the roof off was epic and I can't wait to go down to France in it.

It's gotta have a full service and tune up first as well as a deep clean and detail and a couple of choice mods before I declare it mine, but yeah. Love it!!

Don't worry though guys, Pugly is going nowhere. Hope you likey...

Thinking of getting a C70 soft top myself but not a 2 litre, wanting a GT or a 2.5, nice car though.

Thanks mate, I'd have loved a T5, but I can only afford to insure the 2.0 T unless I sell Pugly, which isn't happening

For me the 2.0 is 980 and the 2.4 is 1145. The T5 is 1500. All with no NCB as it stays on the 407

My old feller has a 30k mile 2.4 lpt as a toy. Luvverly. Much more flexible, less frenetic than the R.
