So refreshing to see the birth of our beloved 240's Please show more of this...when you feel like giving up you need motivation...I love a new car but, the more enthusiastic other people get towards your ride, it makes all the difference...individuality is good too.. thanks for the memories..

Hmmmm, that red 242 that leaves the factory at the end looks a wee bit dirty...

Ahhh, look at all those bright, shiny, brand-new components, now hidden beneath decades of road grime. Hey, there's my 244!

Very fun to see! I love these kinds of films; the management style, haircuts, all the changes that have taken place in the last 30 or so years.

Workers are safe and happy. Drivers are safe and happy. I love Volvo.

They make all of the undercarriage work appear so simple and, almost, modular. Seeing that undercarriage out of the car is going to help me in the future for sure.
