NEW USED CAR?! Isn't that an oxymoron?

Nevertheless, that car looks bad ass.

Yeah, it's going to set me back a little under 12k. Technically I should be able to find it for around 8-9k, but they only made 35,000, so it's a bit tough. On a positive note, they continued to made the convertiable trim, which means parts aren't going to be horribly hard to find.

Edit: Did I mention that the car has one of the best factory audio systems? It's premium, but you basically find it in all of the cars being sold. a 400 watt, 12 speaker system thats Dolby Pro Logic certified. Yeah, Doby Pro Logic in a car. I wonder how that's going to sound. :D

I hate Volvos......

I believe Infinty put some nice equipment in Dodge cars, but nothing like what's in that. Do you really need 400 watts coming from a stereo?!
What kinda engine they put in those? Are they peppy? Does it get decent gas mileage? That's all I care about when buying cars...

Btw, the new 2006 Mistubishi Eclipses look fugly!!! They need to stop messing with v6's and bring the turbos back!

My car is 93' Buick LeSabre with 140,000. It set me back a whole $1500. But my fiancee got the better deal. A 94' Bonniville with about 250,000 miles on it. Only $300. I'm jealous of her car.

Hooray for another large sedan fan.

It's not that. They just dont look good on bloated cars.

So we're talking about cars eh? I got a 1986 Ford Bronco for $700 although it needs new tires and a bit of a clean up (the interier is apparently is really good condition -- I don't know, I personally haven't seen it yet). The guy that was selling it thought it didn't work, which was why he was selling it. My Dad, who went to go buy it, noticed that the reason it wouldn't start was because the battery plugs were reversed. I'm sure they were banging their heads after my Dad started it up in front of them. Not exactly sure on the miles though. Hopefully it's not too bad. I hear it has a 302 in it.

I have some nice plans for this bad boy.

I'm paying $140 for my 98 Passat, but I'm on my parents plan. I've got a clean record and am 19 years of age. When I get the Volvo, I'm guessing my insurance will jump up to at least $200 and maybe higher depending on the coverage I decide on.
