I believe the government already has a provision for classic car roadtax
discount. If your car is 25 yrs old and over, you pay 1/4 tax on it.
However, no changing to different engines is allowed and you need to
certify it with Puspakom every year. Believe that would cover all
122/144 and early 244s.

In any case, since 240s are rather cheap, what we spend on tax, we save
on insurance...so its equal to driving a newer smaller car.

VOLFIRO (VOLVO CEFIRO). At present I only keep the photo of RB20 engine.

khalip, why do you say that the 240 owners are being left out? I have an
'84 240 s/wagon which has given me sterling service for the past 20 years.
No car is problem free. There's bound to be something wrong somewhere. If
cars are problem free, the car/parts makers will very soon go out of
business.

If you have an interesting experience with your 240, do post it here or at
the VOCM website & shae it with the others. There are a lot of 240 owners
in the forum.ThumbUp

Only afford to own 240, but in love to S70, and my eyes are staring at
V40, slowly saving money to buy 740.

I think there are many 240 owner out there. am one of them. only thing is
this car are so reliable, many of them just used it and when things went
wrong, they just sent for repair. but am curious to know, those 240 on the
street, some look really not been taken care for long time, but with 2.4lt
road tax, they still drive, why ah?

my car are all standard and there are some loose screw here and there and
really need a paint job but then am still attending the coming TT 8thjan.
its not confine to new volvo even though one tend to see more topic on 850
and the newer cars. we need ppl like u to build up the 240 kaki.

Suddenly with the new year all the 240s are coming out of the woodwork.
Its not that this forum only caters to newer Volvos but maybe we 240
owners here should be more active? How bouts a 240 Cruise? Whatsaya?
