Skip the Amazon and get back into Volvo 1800 game. Has quite a few in the ad below. Even has a P1900 which I would like to have but not for $25k.

My son had a leaky oil pan on his 1999 Subaru 3 years ago. It was rusted through. E36M3 happens.

Crack pipe, all of them, judging by the photos.

I'm pretty sure the B18 in that Amazon is hosed, but there's other good parts on the car.

I don't dabble in 122's for the money, I just think they're cool. 1800's are all flash, but no different mechanically from the 122. I love the retro lines on the 544, but they are getting rare.

$1263 was the final bid on that 4 door. I hope whoever bought it enjoys it!

Here's a solid-looking 2 door, non-running, but let's see how high the bidding goes on this one:

$550 and hasn't met reserve. I suppose $1263 is ok for the 4 dr.

1800 prices seem to be going nuts. There's a '68 on Hemmings right now that's rusted all to hell, has a shot interior and they're asking almost $7K for it. Then there's a rather crappy looking '72 E in Florida with a $13K asking price.

I think there's still a disconnect between "asking" prices and "realistic" prices for 1800s. With the uptick in all GT prices, even the lowly 1800 has been lifted some. I sold a rough ES last year for 1100. There's still a fair number of these cars out there, and somewhat limited demand.

Interesting carb setup on the blue 2 door 122, don't think I've ever seen this before. Twin Webers?

Love the white interior on this one. Don't think I've ever seen that before, either.

According to the listing, it's a Penta AQ 110 engine. Interesting. Wonder if the car floats?

i believe that the penta motors have forged cranks
