Pick a part in chilliwack. its a long way, but the lower prices offset the cost of fuel compared to the local junkyards

Need to brace up the 240s to justify the new welder anyway...
I just did this in the 244 at the end of Jan in the pouring rain. Good times, and the group was surprisingly into the brick.

Do any of you guys live in or near surrey?!

I went to ralphs auto wreckers today on scott road and got a wagon dog gate, I f@#king forgot one bracket in the car i think. I dont really want to drive all the way out there for one damn piece, if one of you is planning on going there soon and could grab it that would be amazing. Its in a dark grey (I think) 740 wagon right beside the gravel road that goes through there and it looks like this:



In better news I also snagged some lighted window switches, and some nearly brand new headlights as well as some saab side markers that i might try and put on. Does any have any pics of saab markers on a volvo?

Nice snag. I saw on in there once but decided not to get it. Probably would've been raped by Ralph (horrific alliteration FTW), and not worth the trouble of selling it.

I'm planning to head there in like two weeks, so not for a while.

Saab markers have been put on Volvos, search the forums? At least one guy selling them in For Sale has a pic.

Nice!

I thought about the January class, but bailed.

I really do need to fab up some chassis braces, at the very
least, before embarrassing myself.

My car is still stock at under 100hp, but I'd rather have the
braces than more power for dancing with cones.

More power would be okay too...

The BMW folks at the winter skills course were really cool.

I grabbed that piece today! Just gotta wait till tomorrow to borrow a drill from work to install it!

On the way home I went to the Value Village on Edmonds st in Burnaby and found the Haynes manual for Volvo 740+760 even though mines a 90 and it doesnt cover that...But i have the european one for 90+ 740s on order from a place here in vancouver

But there was two more Haynes there for 240 series, and 100 series?/amazon/1800 there if anyone is looking for them!

I'm stock/100 hp too. But, firewall braces and winter rubber were enough to keep me pointed in the right direction, tires squealing and all. Best thing about running a car that's 20 years older than anything else on the track is that you have a built-in excuse for not being fast.

The benefit of running a car 20+ years old is that it's automatically awesome for lasting so long AND showing up to dance with cones.

Sure! Looking for door speaker grills out of a 900, not a 700. Black or dark grey dome light also? Thanks!

I'm looking for 1 or 2 of the 240 2-piece hub caps with the black 'V' centre.

Not there.

I was hoping to score an 8.8 rear from there, but until they get more exploders in stock all the 31 spline disc ones are taken...

I went down the street to Pro Auto Recyclers in Abbotsford and picked up a spiffy B5234T3 and a 31 spline disc brake 8.8. Seems like a good wrecker with quite a bit of later model Volvo stuff and realistic prices compared to the rest of the Vancouver Area.
