So myself and two other local Volvo nerds headed out, late one night, a few weeks back to hit up Fort Worth for some night shots...not sure if I've posted any of these before so if I have I apologize. Some of these are not intended to be "perfect" photos but were just goofing off. Enjoy.

I respect the C30 owner for putting some moose stickers and grill emblem on such a new car. That's awesome, still got an old-skool sense of Volvo pride. Awesome pics.

a 480 would have fit perfect with the cars there :)

I agree with that. There's a turbo and a non turbo 480 for sale here locally. I've considered buying the turbo but he's asking $6500 which I think is a bit steep. How expensive are parts state side for these and can you mod them?

you can mod them to 175 hp easy. The other parts are some what normal priced, but some special things cost much and almost nowhere to be found. I have spend on my car with a purchase price 6540.- $

Ok, am I losing my mind or are 17's actually starting to look too small on 240 wagons from some angles?:wtf:

I must losing it and/or be too used to 18's....

Anyways killer pics. The silver 245 is smooth.
