So I pulled I'm to my shop parking lot the other day and as I am pulling up, one of the bay doors next to me is open, and it usually isn't. And I just so happen to see this! I couldn't help but talk to him. Apparently that's what he loves, old volvos. Along with alot of other older cars in amazing condition! I found this very amazing that he is right next door! Anytime a new one comes ill get a pic!

Im not sure the year...I forgot, but its an immaculate 242 with only 55 k original miles! Some guy in Nebraska just bought it for 10k + shipping!!

Sorry for my **** phones pictures...

Last year for those plates was 1979, and first year for that grill set was also 1979.

Ken, when I bought my 82’ 242 back in 04’ it came with those plates. What am I not understanding correctly about these blue and yellow letter plates?

I thought the blue/yellow plate was issued until 86, no?

Edit: 6 to 7 digits in 1980.... got it

Not could be, is. Look at the pictures taken for the auction. Same license plate.

That poor 242 should have been left in that guy's hands. I can only imagine what's going to happen to that thing.

Man, your work neighbor has some cool cars. That's quite an impressive collection. That last Nissan looks really neat. Very cool design.
