A car with more pep...

Dear Tom and Ray:

I currently own a 1986 Volvo 240. I am pleased with my car, but I'd like my next car to have more pep. I am considering the Volvo 740 GLE with the multi-valve engine. What do you think?

RAY: Well, almost anything you buy will have more pep than a Volvo 240. But if you've been happy with your Volvo, the 740 GLE with the 16 valve engine should be a great choice.

TOM: We were going to suggest you step all the way up to the six cylinder Volvo 760, but we're afraid that might provide too much excitement for you. We'll save that suggestion for the next time you write to us. That'll be in about four years when you tell us you want something with more pep than your 1990 740 GLE.
