Missing being in the club

Cleaned up the garage, found parts laying around, but it turned out to be a complete Volvo 480? If you want to sell your car (480 only) you can place an advert here.

Missing being in the club

Post by gentlegiant » Sun Apr 26, 2020 7:40 pm

Hi all,
Having said goodbye to my second 480 two years ago I still frequently browse the usual sites to see if another has come up to tempt me. I’ve a XC60 now so really can’t and shouldn’t justify getting another 480 to go alongside. They really are my favourite cars though :(

Its the exact reason you should own a 480 now.

You've got reliable transport, which means the 480 is just for fun. When it does one of the oh so frequent 480 things, you can put it away for another more convenient time rather than stress and panic because you need it the next day.

Nobody likes you driving a SUV. Owning a 480 will make you lots of new friends. Here on the forum, in the auto-parts shop and in the workshop.

I’ll keep browsing in the hope that one day another will emerge that I can’t resist. There’s a 480 shaped hole in my life!
