Contact has been made and negotiations have commenced. Chap giving away wants to ensure it goes to a deserving benefactor.

Look at the mileage - its only just run in. Definitely worth a bit of effort.

There's a free 740GLE estate in the classifieds section of the latest edition of the Volvo Owners Club magazine. If it wasn't in Durham, I'd be all over it :wink:

As mentioned above, I have left the magazine which contains the ad at work (I'll be able to retrieve it tomorrow), but I can recall that the car is silver with black trim, is apparently in very good condition and is located within the 01207 telephone code area, most likely in Consett :)

Righty right, here's the ad for those who are interested. I imagine that the car is still available, as the magazine has a fairly small circulation and many VOC members are apt to look a gift Volvo in the mouth, so to speak:

740 GLE
1988
Auto estate
Metallic grey
Black leather
VGC
No known faults
New MOT
Free to a good home
Contact: Croydon Parry 01207 6229115

If the guy can afford to fly around in a Tiger Moth then maybe he can afford to just give away old cars instead of faffing with tyre kickers.

Give the working number a ring and see what response you get. You may get a ride in an old biplane!

My man in Sweatyland is on the case.


He must be uber fast for a free land tank. He must be made of concrete to beat off the racing frat etc etc. I bet the antique crew would even brain him with a Queen Vic sideboard for first dibs on this.

That sounds nice, Darling

Could it be that some old brylcreem boy is lonley and just wants shitters to call up for a chat about a free Volvo? Unless its Mr G. Agdgdgwngo and you've all been duped. HA!

Exactly! This is autoshite for fucksake there has been far to much bollocks talked about unreliablility etc....when the whole point is exactly to do what Sam Glover did last December flying to Bucharest to rescue a basket case Facial Denem Sport, get it through a local MOT and drive the bugger 2100 miles back to blighty in mid winter with no heater...the man is a god!

Like George Mallory responded when asked 'why do you want to climb everest?'....in a day when they wore monacles and pith helmets ffs...

His response......because it is THERE


I don't find it odd that a giffer wants to give away a car. I have done it in the past and you do seem to find it in volvos especially...it is the bloody mindedness of driving an old barge for years that makes you feel that you need to pass it on to another torch bearer
