    1990 Volvo 740 wagon. Blue/green,
    Was running & drives great when I parked it a few years ago.

    Since then a pack rat got to a couple of wires under the hood.
    One of them was the crank position sensor on the flywheel.
    Not sure if fuel pump (it was new a few years ago) has packed it in or if there are problems in relay and/or wires to the pump.
    Not wanting to mess with it any more it has evolved into a mechanic's special/parts car.
    Every month I go out and spin the engine over a few times to keep it from getting rigamortis.

    This was an add that I wrote for it before it became decommissioned:

    211K miles on engine & 4 speed tranny,
    (for a Volvo this is just past break-in) :)),
    No smoke from engine (will probably pass smog test),
    Trans has 5th speed via lockup torque converter at 52 mph,
    Still gets 30 mph at 60 mph, 23 mpg in town,
    2k miles on new Pirelli tires,
    Nice Alloy wheels
    + extra set of alloy rims,
    New all metal radiator (3 years ago),
    New fuel pump (2 years ago),
    New water pump (5 years ago),
    SONY cd/mp3 player,
    Power antenna actually works (new mast cable 5 years ago),
    Power windows all work,
    I am the 2nd owner and have owned this car for 10 years.,
    It has a clean title,
    The paint is still shiny, and like most newer Volvos, but has some tiny pits.,
    Disc brakes (all around) are in fine condition,

    Now for the BAD side:
    There is a small dent on the lower side of the front passenger's

    door.,
    Another small dent on the roof from a roof rack,

    Headliner is shot, kaput,
    Tail lamp housings should be replaced,.

    Speedo doesn't work but all other instruments do.
    (cruise control relies on speedo),

    Climate control stuck on defrost/heat
    (but temp control works & cuts off heat),

    A/C compressor needs a new clutch
    (this is a VIRGIN R-12 system),
    parking brake needs serious adjusting,
    rear seat belts are missing,
    fuel pump relay occasionally hangs on restarts.
