Good friends of ours buy a new Volvo every 20 years whether they need it or not. The most recent, a 2005 got rear ended a few weeks back. He told me if he had to loose one, he'd rather the 1985 Manual Trans wagon be the last one standing. The 2005 was not totaled, but he had to fight for it. I only has 64k on the clock and still has another 8-9 years before being replaced. My vTec Prelude has a removable race steering wheel [was on it when I got it]. Seller included the AirBag but had sold the steering wheel. I decided I would take a lower offer I had said no to previously. I go through that same intersection 95% of the time I drive it, albeit 60 mile a week at most in nice weather. I went to go retrieve the front plate and had to endure waiting for the crosswalk light X2. I feel totally sorry for folks that have to pedestrian or bike across that more than once, no less multiple times daily!
