Finally got some pics of my Volvos!

960 with winter rims:

From Florida


V90 in winter hibernation:


I can't wait until the spring to try out the Hydras on the 960, should look (and handle) a lot better. I feel bad for driving it in the winter considering this is the first year it's ever seen snow and salt Oh well, I'll just care for it the best I can, the V90 will thank her for her sacrifice

Thumbs up

Heres some pics of my 1983 244

the interior used to be tan with crappy spay painted red, the out side was completly trashed with no crome no paint and rust holes about a foot wide on all the fenders, about 1 year and a half and 500 trips to the junk yard she is really starting to look pretty good. Ive done so many mods to this car already its not even funny, not to mention the floor was rusted out and was rear and front ended numerus times, by the way that front end is from 3 differant years

MAXIMUS ... no spare wheel wells. Is that a nod to the original 242GT? Did you do it 'cos you had to repair some rust anyway? Or did some Swedish 4-doors have no spare wheel wells?

Any chance of a closer-up look at where your bonnet/'hood' lines-up at the rear against the 1979 air-vent?
[Or did you weld in the later-model vent?]

After:

Still much more to be done looks-wise. Need to re-polish the left side and put a good coat of wax on it, match the underside plastic things...one is gray and one isnt there, wanna get better headlights, maybe E-codes, +T it and i'll be happy.

Post 1990 244 Dl (56k dangerous)

OK, so here it is, a 1990 244 DL with some bling added. The car is dirty as it hasn't been washed in awhile due to drought restrictions. What has been done so far:

IPD Turbo Exhaust
K&N Filter
Caliper Paint
Virgo Rims
Turbo Swaybars
Poly Swaybar Bushings
Pacesetter Exhaust Tip
Bilstein Touring Shocks & Struts
B&G Sport Springs
Tachometer
52mm Clock
VX Cam (not in car yet, in trunk waiting for warmer weather)
Volvo Spoiler (Zenders)
52mm Oil Pressure Gauge
White Guage Faces
Raging Moose decals (yet to be put on, will go on ala Ferrari, front quarter fenders above the side marker lights)

Here are some pics:

White gauge faces:

Rear view:

Front quarter view:

Rear quarter view:

Driver side view:


The thing that bugs me the most is the spoiler, it isn't on quite right and it seems too narrow.

Hope you like.

I don't think Hydras are the right offset for that car; that would not be a good thing for handling.
