The author

Tinkering with and modifying his first car at the age of 18, Tim began a continual learning curve that developed into an obsession, with friends and family often looking for help with buying, selling, fixing and modifying many different vehicles. His love of Volvos however, began in childhood, when his father purchased a huge, shiny car that was very fast and exciting to a young boy, but safe and very comfortable. The car was a Volvo 740 Turbo Intercooler. Fast forward 20 years and youÆll find TimÆs passion and childhood joy combine in writing this essential buyers guide.
