    I am 39 years old and yet I still do not have a mailbox which is a perfect model of a Citroen H Van. I am not sure how I let this happen.

    I had to meet with an older gentleman today regarding an insurance issue and he asked if I could meet at his house as his wife was recovering a from recent surgery...sure, why not. We started talking cars as he had quite a few photos in his office of vintage cars and motorcycles. The next thing you know, we are having a coffee in his "shop".

    Ronnie...I though of you when I spotted the Valvoline sign. There were also a couple of Auburn boat tail Speedsters in the garage and a '54 Austin Healy 100-4 stashed away under a tarp.

    It's been over a year since I bought it, but today I finally got around to taking some pictures of my Alfa ('73 GTV).

    A really fun car to drive.

    Oh, yeah. I drove my buddy's 1600 stepnose before it got T-boned - What a delightful car to drive. Shockingly roomy inside for such a tiny car, too.

    Look for rust in the windshield surround. If that checks out, buy it. Best year - new style grille and small bumpers. Did 145s get D-Jet that year or were they still Stromberg carb. I do not recall. Early-stage Volvo dementia setting in. Seriously though B20/M41, that grille. Probably the very pinnacle of Swedish car making.

    I think it could be an "E" or not - pretty sure it was an option. We'll find out.

    Edit - is Hagerty well regarded for pricing?

    Sometimes. IMO not as crazy as BAT.

    Another option is to see what folks are asking on the online forums. (not sure what the "standard" US Volvo forum is, but it can't be that hard to find)

    Thanks. I think the asking price ($6500) is very much in the realm of "crack pipe", but I'm not coming up with much in the way of recent sales via forums, eBay, etc.

    For $4500, it should look like the one I was conceived in. On the day I was conceived. I am a huge fan of these cars, but I really think $4000-4500 is the limit for a very nice driver. Maybe $5000 if it's a fuel-injected 142 or SU-carbed 142S with the black grill, black light surrounds, frenched-in fogs and the tuck-n-roll seats. For $6500, it had better be a museum piece.

    This one is advertised at $4100 and would sell for $3500 easy. Volvo 145 | Värmland

    Oh and double all these prices if it's a 145 Express of course.
