Looking like the same plan here

Brought home this lighted magnification thing. It's a game changer for small work with my bad eyes

Couple of Volvos stopped by for a few. Masks are mandatory right now with us. Regardless of personal feelings, the local Volvo people want to keep it safe and fly under the radar

lunchb0x has been wrenching. Looks like both of our spare T3's are hurt with cracks in the casting. Anyone have a good unit for sale? He has a rebuild kit waiting

Don't worry about it. Just run it. They pretty much are all like that. Occasionally I come across one that isn't cracked but that's once in every blue moon.

Met 122power when he came to pick up the B23 from the wrecked AF wagon. Awesome dude



Volvo life out here in Modesto is so cool. Followed a friend's 242 turbo home from a local meet.

A friend of ours owns a shop in Modesto named Valley European Automotive. Dropped my neighbor off to get his S80 and snapped a pic with the owner's 242 turbo



Also met up with James_M to sell him the M46 swap from our wrecked 240 wagon. Another really nice and cool TBer

We were stoked to see another clean wagon pull up!

Anyone have a cheap r/c boat?

In daily news:
Front brake pads for the wagon were shot. The rotors are wasted too, but I'll do those next time
