Some of you may remember I Rolled my 244 a while back. The car has since been taken apart and sent for scrap. This was my first volvo and a fun car. So I cut a little piece of it out to always remember it. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y74/Tree25is/volvo/newPicture4010-2.jpg
And the little piece I saved http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5019/5588192380_c7daca6627_b.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/meathammertunadeck/5588192380/)volvo pic 3 (http://www.flickr.com/photos/meathammertunadeck/5588192380/) by tree18is (http://www.flickr.com/people/meathammertunadeck/), on Flickr

How fast were you going when you rolled it? Cause if it was a slow as i'm thinking it was, then i want a cage :omg:.

Rolled it at about 35-40, it was pretty rough because the car caught a patrudeing irrigation pipe and it tossed the car pretty bad.
fliped it 180, then rolled three times back to its wheels and drove home.

That's pretty decent then considering the speed. 3 rolls isn't nothing either. Cheers mate, you've put my mind at ease a bit.

Funny that i just saw this for the first time... I took the trunk lid off of vurbo, planning on putting lights under the lip of it and mounting it flat on the wall, makes a little shelf and also some cool garage art.

Nice work!

****in Awesome! Just to add to the original post, i thought it was more of a kickflip then a roll. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm doing that with the 7" rounds and grill from my first Volvo (242GT) I'm going to use it as driveway lights.
