Welp I got another one..



1993 245 Black with mostly converted black interior. I purchased the car from MikeJr in dirty but functioning condition.. Its got the typical 250-300k volvo 240 problems and needs some TLC but its mostly complete. Mike got the car for is niece to drive and she was not volvo material so the car was sold for a good price to me. Mike offered up a bunch of spare parts and pieces to hopefully get this car back in tip top condition. Just spent a chunk of change on FCP's site to get all the necessary volvo suspension wear items. I hope to F+t this car this fall and make it a fun daily driver.




Fixed some A/C leaks




I'm almost positive the odometer is 100k off.. no worries a new spedo gear has been ordered


Holds 4 kids comfortably

I had 3 sets of them at one time.. These actually were last on the chump car at Daytona.. I need some more wheels.. I got more 5x114 wheels laying around than anything else I will likely just get a set of adapters and rock them eventually...
