If I didnt just re-paint my bumpers black I probably would of body color matched them...

Maybe I should see if that guy wants the side skirts.

I was also thinking of maybe doing my bumpers like this:

and today after work I ghetto mocked up if I painted the side skirts black:

Down at Spanish banks yesterday, someone parked a sweet 1800 next to my parents 940 and my friends R. 3 generations!

PS, anyone have a spare set of 7/9 wagon tails, headlights and corners they want to lend me so I can pass out of province?

HaggardRob 08-10-2012 06:47 PM

I think I might have some for you, I'll check when I get home, but I'm out of town this weekend...

Canuckvolvo 08-10-2012 06:58 PM

That would be awesome Rob! If you can save me a bunch of running around to junk yards and whatnot, case of beer for sure!

HaggardRob 08-10-2012 07:57 PM

Ah ****, I sold them on craigslist a couple of weeks ago... Sorry man!

Some guy in an S60 also showed up later, apparently to sell something to some random guy. He walked up to us and wondered where we all came from. Some said Turbobricks, some said Volvospeed, but really, the answer was "craigslist." :lol:

And there was also this winner:

Can I post my own car? Someone tagged me with this little guy on Saturday...

Trying to decide if it's from someone I know in the neighbourhood or just East Van weirdness.

HaggardRob 08-20-2012 12:22 AM

This happened:

Then this happened:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ROB/photo3.jpg

got some tires off CL, the guy was asking $100 but when I emailed him, he said he wanted them gone and would do it for a case of beer. Couldnt say no to that kind of deal...and it turns out one doesnt hold air...

Also, sold the steel sunroof (as seen leaning up against wall in top pic) this morning to a guy whos going to put it in his "hot rodded (insert british car here)" I was asking $20 but I wanted it gone and he gave me this:

You can still spend it, but as soon as a bank sees it they'll take it out of circulation and it will go to the shredder. It won't ever be worth anything to a collector though since it's just a beat up old ten. Either keep it for novelty or spend it. You could always check out a coin/stamp shop to see what a minty old $1 or $2 sells for.

+Kardboard+ 09-19-2012 11:34 PM

There sure are a lot of Volvos in East Van. This is all from one morning I spent around Commercial Drive:

Volvo 164. Shiny.

Later on in the week, bought an intercooler (and piping!) from a guy who turned out to be Turbo'd 24erty4er. We met in the Brick Cave, as seen below with two 740 Turbos, one V8 245 and a 940 Turbo. All with E-codes!

Rock on, Vancity!

Oh my god so jealous of your epic Volvo scenery :o it's fairly slim pickings around here on a daily basis.

That maroon wagon up there is sexy as hell. So is the 164. You truly don't see that every day. Sigh..

+Kardboard+ 09-20-2012 01:44 AM

It's actually a red wagon:

SEIZURE!!! It's amazing :omg:

Double02 09-20-2012 10:39 AM

^ I see that green 244 all the time around Strathcona on my way to work. Haven't seen that red wagon though - pretty awesome.

Nice spotting by the way.

+Kardboard+ 09-20-2012 01:32 PM

Volvos are kinda like Punch Buggies to me, except more like "Pic Bricks:" See a Brick, take a pic! :rofl:
