I've owned Volvo's since 1981.
My 242 Turbo, 86 744 Turbo and my 87 Turbo wagon all weighed under 3,200 lbs. My 97 960 is the heavy weight at 3,500 lbs

The S60R AWD 300HP is also a real pig weight wise coming in over 4000 lbs.

There was a Volvo ad back in the eighties of six or seven 700's stacked on top of each other but I couldn't find it.

Here is a stack of Volvo 144's stacked one on top of the other.

A volvo 240 weighs 2900lb. A Volvo 740 weighs 3100lb. This can vary up to 200 lb depending on body style, transmission, sunroof and turbo/non turbo.

Yeah, I exaggerated on the weight a bit.

Still, they're fairly hefty cars, some of them.


That's the ad I was looking for, I think.

Why do I feel like I'm riding a white horse being chaed by lions and zebras and I can't get away........

because 1.) I'm drunk and riding a merry-go-round.......

OR 2.) I'm stuck in this thread with the OP who obviously doesn't get it!
