How it going guys, my name is Robert.

I picked up a '91 240 (NA, automatic) back in October, and I've been lurking around the boards here ever since.

It's my first Volvo and I've been loving it. I'd had my eye on a 240 for a while after I crashed my '04 Forester; 240s are all over the place here in Seattle. I'd done my shopping around and then, by serendipity, we got one on a trade in at the dealership I work at and I picked it up for $1k.

It's in great condition, 115k miles, stock as the day it was sold (except the JVC receiver the previous owner installed), and has been garaged for most of the last 10 years. Aside from some baked on sap, the paint is good and I'll get around to giving it a clay bar and wax sooner or later.

Did the timing belt, spark plugs and wires that desperately needed to be done when I bought it. This weekend it's getting new control arms with poly bushings, billy touring class struts, and IPD Sport springs. And it'll get a new transmission mount, though I'm going the diesel engine mount route after some research.

You guys are an entertaining crowd, and I figured it's time to get involved.
