I fell in love with this car, a Volvo V70, nearly a year ago, and since then I’ve become a little obsessed. There’s just something about it that says practicality and class at the same time. But I promised myself that as soon as I could afford one, I would splurge and and make one mine. At first I had planned to get an old one, maybe a 2003, but after looking at hundreds of them online and doing some math, I realized that it made a lot of financial sense to spend a little more and buy a newer model.
So here’s the one I found, a 2008:
The downside is that it’s in Chicago, but I’ve made plans with my father to meet me there, and we’re going to roadtrip it out to Seattle. The middle of winter maybe isn’t the ideal time for such a journey, but it’ll be an adventure.
I’m still working out the details, but I think I’ll get to take possession of it on Jan. 22nd, and then we’ll do the drive over three full days.
I’m so excited!
