I have had a blast getting this car up and running over the past 6 months. I have every receipt of everything I've bought and done to this car, from new belts and fluids to new injectors and tires. The car runs great and I drive it everywhere, but I need to reduce my garage from 4 cars to 3. »
This post comes nearly half a year too late, but at that time I was working in Östersund, a medium-ish city in Sweden. And right in front of the apartment my company rented, was a weekly car meeting. »
Nearly a year ago, I impulse-bought a rather forlorn Volvo 850 R station wagon. With undiagnosed engine-electrical issues, and fairly scruffy cosmetics, it was on the edge of being a basket case. I didn't even have much of an idea of what it was, but it was for sale locally, and I was looking for a cheap beater, so I… »
Volvo #3 has arrived. Quick photodump from my trip to Minnesota and back. »And then, got to look down over Minneapolis/St. Paul: And then went to crash with the friend I picked the car up from. I /did/ wake up to this, the next morning, though.. And, the end result:
As I'm sure everyone knows I own the best car ever(TM) a Volvo V70R. »Enjoy some shameless self promotion below!
I was reading this article right here and thinking about Volvo as they have been (awesome, RWD) and how they are today (FWD, kind of boring but great all the same) and that in the future, if Geely gave them the means and the funding, how it would be interesting to have Volvo and the remains of Saab from NEVS under one… »
I showed the car today. It acted... special. Shifts were rough, but still better than usual. Lady offered me $1400 but cannot close until Friday. I have two showings scheduled tomorrow which I did tell her about. One guy said if he likes it, he'd give me a $500 deposit and the rest of the money by next Tuesday. No… »
The Volvo specifically chose to park next to the 9-3 which made me feel special inside. Which would you choose? Spotted at work. »
Dad has just sent me this: 1984 Volvo 244 DL for only $1400. Really low mileage and looks great. I have always wanted a 240 and this body style with the 4 headlights is awesome. Dad said if I sell the V70R for $1000 he'd cover the rest to get me this. Now, I'm not too familiar with the 244. How does it differ from the… »
Well, at least my Volvo.. To celebrate, I even slid the car out of the parking lot at work, sideways, to great cheering from a couple of the division chiefs. »
Taking the Volvo 240 to a one-day Rally School in Ridgecrest, CA and then doing RallyX.
The same Volvo I tow with. The Scirocco is in the shop and the GTI needs an axle or wheel bearing or something so why not take the tow vehicle? :) »
