Thankfully this was just a clerical error by someone at the national titling service, but it made for one hell of a story.

I want to make perfectly clear how amazing Alex Spinner was during this whole process. We were in contact the entire time and he even offered to buy the car back if NJ rejected it, or have it titled in my name at his own house in NY just so that we could have this car. The guy is seriously an amazing person and goes to great lengths to make things right with his cars and parts that he sells. He had no idea about the junk status because it was the NMVTIS clerk's fault that the car was junked, not his, and it showed up on exactly ZERO reports until the NJ DMV told me. We will never know when the junk status was put on this car, but I'm guessing it was when Alex bought it from the Michigan owner and someone put it in the NMVTIS system wrong. Don't always trust CarFax, it never tells the whole story! Feel free to email me with any questions about this whole process and how it was resolved specifically. Cheers guys and thanks for watching! -Gregson

I'm actually tearing down my manual swapped 2000 V70R, and sending it to the scrap yard. Bought an 06 Manual S60R as my project car, and you guys have inspired me to put an 8eight full exhaust into my build. Thanks guys!

Here this would clearly refer to a sort of 'tax evasion move', didn't think of that, but here in Europe, I pay €600/year, 'road tax' for a 2.4 T5 S60. In Holland, they pay €1200 per year for the same car!

Greg, you have owned V70 with stock suspension setup, and now this car has coil overs. Can you tell me what it drives like on coil overs compared to stock suspension? Love the project. Keep up the good work.

I found another 05 Im trying to buy right now. Its Silver but an automatic. I've been having coil problems with mine they last a couple days when I replace them and then it starts running like shit again if anybody knows what this problem could be......Ive replaced the same 2 coils twice.

jokrj : try buying the coils from IPD, they have a lifetime warranty and they have OEM and excellent Aftermarket parts.

Its funny you posted this. My car was hit by lightning and had a salvage title. I talked to the dealer that worked on the car several times the insurance company spent like $11,000 trying to correct everything that was wrong with it he said all the major electrical components have been replaced like the computers etc and then they finally got tired of spending money on it and totaled it.

That's a crazy story, now track down the previous owners and see why none of the panels line up lol.

Haha noted. I’ll see what I can find out, but I largely don’t care that much since it’s a project car and cosmetic stuff will be fixed with the exterior restoration. Would still like to know. I’ll keep you posted. -Gregson

Gregson, maybe you should grab the 4C suspension from the old VR before selling it.

Ah, beautiful Volvo, I'm so glad that you sort out the problem! Now, when you you going to make a vid of things you like and don't about this one. How does it compares to previous one(suspention and 5spd) and the other cars? Case in point "Money Pit"(BMW) and Subi? Keep 'em coming!
ShiftingLanes (5 months ago)
Thanks! Me too. Was a bit of a nail biter there for a while. Not sure I’ll do the hate/love video. I think a full review might be a better way to go with this one since a lot of those other 2 videos carries over. Either way, I’ll give a full review and comparo soon! -Gregson
Didier Lannoy (5 months ago)
What a crazy story!!! I would have been completely pissed off!!! Glad that everything turned OK! Cheers!
ShiftingLanes (5 months ago)
Thanks Didier! Was a bit scary there for about a week, but so glad it turned out alright as well. Cheers! -Gregson
