1988 Volvo 360 GLT 2.0i from Australia and New Zealand
Awesome... a great ride, in style
Nothing yet, but I'm thinking of replacing/cleaning the original air filter with a k&n.
What can I say? It's a great little car, goes like a rocket if you let it. Not much available power after 110km/h though, starts to shake, which is funny unless there's a Skyline sitting to your left waiting to be dragged.
Power steering, power windows, heated seats, radio, rear wheel drive, etc. It's also got the softest suspension you could imagine, leaning 30 degrees round corners.
Comfortable and fun to drive, pulls confident 'squealies' round corners if pushed in 2nd...
My first car, I inherited it from my grandparents, and I'm quickly learning that it's not a cheap car to run.
Has an 'image problem', meaning hopefully it won't get nicked, however I think it's the hottest car around. Just don't tell my mates...
There seems to be some sort of cult following, I wonder why? Could it have something to do with the superior style? The grunty-sounding engine which goes insane at 4000 revs? Or the way it leans outward round corners, making you feel like you're traveling at light speed instead of 50km/h? You decide.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hey thanks man, but I was exaggerating, 30 degrees would be a lot of lean... I've thought about replacing the shocks, but I've done quite a lot to it lately, new brakes, tires, a whole lot of servicing... so might leave it for a little while. Suspension is probably next on the cards, might get something racing-inclined haha. Leafspring power!
But thanks man, good to know Volvo owners are looking after each other. Because nobody else will :)
