before. This time he was doing work on a 2005 V70 we found for BB in Pennslyvania and had shipped to Maine. The V70--which is no longer sold in the US--was the last in along line of plainjane Volvo wagons. Now the only Volvo wagons available in this country are decked out with AWD, swollen in size, and laden with gewgaws.
