Hi everyone - I'm new. I don't own a Volvo, but I'm strongly considering tracking down and purchasing a '73 1800ES. Currently I drive a '99 Mazda Miata, and while I love the way it handles and being able to put the top down on nice days, it doesn't feel very "me" anymore and has 167,000+ miles on it. My taste has shifted toward classics over the past few years, plus I like the idea of having a wagon to haul things around in. (My first car was a Honda Accord wagon, and it was nice.)

What are the thoughts on 1800ES's? I hear they're reliable. Should I be concerned about modern features missing (e.g. air bags)? Where are good places to look, and what are reasonable price points? There are a couple on eBay right now where bids are between 8,000$ - 11,000$. There's also a man selling one near my town with a "make me an offer" ad on Craigslist.
