Volvo 480 in York

When you spot a 480 and wonder if it's someone from the forum: ask it here! One rule: do NOT post registration plates.

A member of the Dutch forum spotted a 480 in York

One of the prettiest colours ever applied to a 480!

Brilliant glad to see another one as a daily! Have still yet to see another on the road other than mine (discounting the one I saw in Bosnia that started my obsession)

I'm not in the UK, but mine is semi-daily (as in: when both my wife and I need a car) and there is a daily driven 480 (a red 1993 480 S, 2 litre w/o info centre) in the same town as where I live. The owner has my telephone number in his WhatsApp favorites list, in case something goes wrong :lol:

Brilliant find! Do you happen to know a bit more specifically where in York, given it's just down the road? If they aren't part of this family already, I think the owner needs to be worked on...

I too am using my Celeb as a daily driver at the moment, and really enjoying doing so too!
