RR of the Day: Volvo a go-go

Welcome to the inaugural Autoblog Reader Ride of the Day post, henceforth to be known as the RR of the Day. Let us kick things off by first saying thank you to everyone who visited our Flickr group and uploaded pics of their ride. It's apparent even now this is going to be the most fun post of the day to produce, and we will be choosing a RR to feature on Autoblog every single weekday. After reviewing the first batch of rides, we only have one request: more details about your ride, please!

On to the first car to featured as our RR of the Day, a Volvo 240 wagon that's dressed to the hilt in a two-tone paint job. Really, all of us at one point has thought about owning a Volvo of this kind, myself included. They have the utility of a Knight Rider lunchbox with the shape to match. It's owner, known only by the Flickr handle expedi2nt, purchased his Volvo for $750. He's truly transformed it into something that looks to be at least worth $850, maybe $950 for someone whose favorite color is blue. Meanwhile, he's also pushed the odometer to 324,251 miles, which is like fresh off the lot for a Volvo from this era. Check out a pair of additional pics after the jump.

Keep in mind, we're looking for all types of vehicles to feature on Autoblog's RR of the Day. Kicking it off with an aged Volvo just goes to show that we're not only looking for BMWs, Porsches and Ferraris (although we'd like to see a lot of those, too!).

If you'd like to see your own ride featured here, simply upload photos into our Flickr group. We select one image to highlight each week day, and crown a Rig of the Week on Sundays. Detailed instructions can be found after the jump.
