When i was 21 and self employed i bought myself a 1972 [K] Jaguar E-type V12 auto coupe in Regency Red with a full length Webasco sunroof,it marked up at £3300 but i got it for £3100...pharrr what a car,if it was still in the condition today as it was when i sold it 2yrs later for £3400 it would be worth at least 40-50 thousand pounds IMO....Identical to the piccy below but my car had a black leather interior.....haaaaa,happy days
Just recently sold my XC90 and bought a V50, the XC90 is an excellent all round car and great tow car, my only gripe was the poor MPG,
apart from that I think you've made a very wise decision....you'll get a lot of enjoyment from it.
My Volvo V50 Powershift [Auto] does 53 mpg solo on a run, just been to York with van on tow [1300kgs] and achieved 31-33mpg..
quiet pleased with that as my last car a Volvo XC90 was a money pit economy wise.
