The Cars

1991 Volvo 240 Sedan

Synopsis:

1991 Volvo 240This was my first wife’s pick and a car she dreamed about for several years before we purchased it. It was another roomy, comfortable sedan and good family car. I have to admit, I just never really cared for it. It went with my ex- as part of our divorce settlement, and was subsequently ruined by Hurricane Katrina.
