Glad you like the Caravan! The best bit is I got the brand new registration to reflect the history of the car, so it's a 1990 Volvo 940 GLE Caravan previously registered in Singapore and built in Sweden
Cheating, I know, as it was partially "built" right here in Auckland
Yeah, I'm on TB as FreeEMSFred, but if you want to follow the detailed diaries of either car (or the caravan), that happens on my own diyefi forum to mind numbingly boring detail
The colour? I can check the code if you tell me what to look at. I would call it "gold". It's really grown on me since I first saw it in the auction pics. I bought the car unseen online and then drove a few hours to pick it up. They're like rockinghorse shit here. Rough value of 240s in NZ:
1) 242 10k nzd/5k euro
2) 245 5k nzd/2.5k euro
3) 244 1k-3k nzd/0.5k-1.5k euro
245s come up about once a year, and I've only seen one 242 come up since i started looking. Sedans come up all the time. I got my parts car for 450nzd/225euro, but I've not picked it up yet. Hopefully the tacho works!
And I can get some hinges from it for my front doors which flop.
I envy the yanks for their cheap supply of 245s and 242s. I'd love to add a 242 to the fleet one day, with a race-like package and manual. Both of these cars need to stay auto, it suits their characters. The gold car is the super smooth cruiser and the blue car has a split personality, executive style cruiser, or, if you let the B234F rev out, a bit of hooligan
With a manual, and me driving, it'd always be the hooligan which would be a shame.
Gold car was NZ new, the blue car is JDM!
