we had a 1987 volvo 240 until last december. the odometer stopped running in 2004 at mile 208,000. no one knows how many miles were on it when we finally had to bid it farewell. we called it "joe's crazy car," named after the friend who sold it to us for a song when we were down and out. we loved that car like a member of the family; it was my alter ego, my soul sister. thanks for sharing this lovely little video.
