This is a beautiful Volvo 240 Sedan that I saw in July 2010 in Jamaica Plain, near Boston, MA.  Looks like in may be an 1981 or 1982. Obviously, someone has taken great care of this car. 

It reminds me a lot of the 1981 Volvo DL Wagon that I had in the late 1980's.  My car was the same Carlsbad Yellow (Paint Code 128-2.)  This is definitely a rare color for the early 80's Volvos.  I recall seeing plenty of 240's that were in the pale-yellow shade, but far fewer like this Carlsbad Yellow one.
