Really want a 1800... but which one?
This is my first post in here. I've been a fan of the Volvo 1800 for a while now. I know they're not fast cars, but I think they are unbelieveably nice. They have some of the nicest curves I've ever seen on any car, ever. Personally I think it's up there with the Aston Martin DB5, but that's just me. I saw one in person last night for the first time in a very long time, and somehow I just fell in love. And now I need to have one. I've been saving up for a second car for a while now, and I probably still won't be able to buy it for another few months, but that's a good thing, because I do my research before I buy a car.
I currently drive a 2006 Mercedes E55, and I knew EVERYTHING about that car before I bought it. I mean everything. I think a car is a huge investment and I'm not about to spend that kind of money unless I know exactly what I'm spending it on.
I was hoping you guys could tell me the differences between the years and the different models. The only one I know I'm not interested in is thr ES, it might serve a purpose, but this is my second car, and I want it to be nice. I live in Los Angeles, in case it matters. I don't want a stick shift; if I'm driving a car because of it's looks I want to be able to relax when doing it.
So I guess this is what I need from you guys:
What are the major differences between the years and the models?
How much would adecent one cost?
Are they expensive to maintain?
How hard is it to find them for sale?
And anything else you think I should know.
Thanks a lot, hopefully I can get my hands on one and spend a lot more time in here.
