Did you ever buy a white ES from Lincolnshire?

Some things just can't be placed elsewhere. Have you been speeding and got fined? Or spotted a nice new Volvo on the web somewhere? All non-480 messages can be posted in this part of the board.

Did you ever buy a white ES from Lincolnshire?

Hi all.

Just had a message via my C&C advert.

Thought I’d post on here if it rings any bells for anyone….

“this is a longshot but I am trying to track down a Volvo 480es owned by my auntie who is sadly losing her battle with cancer. She owned a 480 just like this in the early 90s and as they are from Lincolnshire, I was hoping if this might just be the car as we don't have a photo to include in the montage of her cars he is putting together (she was a huge car fan!) Her name is Mary Wilson and my uncle is David Wilson. I would be so grateful if you could check any old paperwork you have and let me know it just happened to be hers!”

Sad story. It definitely wasn't my white turbo, I know every owner and was only ever driven by one man before me.
