New car. MIGHT get to keep my stang!

Just got the wife a used 2008 Volvo xc90 V8 AWD fully loaded with 34,000 miles on it.

I'm thinking I'm still gonna try and sell my mustang but instead of a minivan I'll hopefully be getting a new 5.0!

Never had a Volvo before but it's pretty nice. 311 HP and like 330 tq. It moves pretty good! I'm probably gonna leave it stock.

Can't say volvo's are my favorite brand by any means, but very safe and good for families.

Yea I've never owned one before but I liked it better than the Cadillacs and it should be nice enough to shut my wife up lol

$27,000 tho now there's no way I'll be buying a boss302 for another 4 years
