Congrats dude! Keep an eye on the two year old. They can be sneaky in how they punish the younger one. Sometimes a hug is not a hug...

awesome, congrats AJ! I just became an uncle again yesterday. Not that much fun when they're football sized but I'll have to give him a couple years.

re: AW50-42 , I thought 1999+ had the 5 speed auto, but after checking it turns out they went to the garbage 5 speed auto in 2001. One of the volvospeeder duders that will be there on Saturday might have an extra one of them.

Congrats AJ!

It's the wife's birthday this Saturday so a car meet isn't an option.

Did you give the bigger one a turbo button to press when they want you to go faster?

Nah, you give them control of the bottle.


Congrats AJ!

Seven adults belted into a 245 is a good time too.

Your original thought was correct. 5 speed auto's were 99+

Would be nice to locate a 50-42LE before long as I am hoping to re and re while the weather is still co operating - apparently 1999 was the last year for the 4 speed auto, 2000 had the 5 speed and the 2nd generation platform ( 2001 + ) had I believe the 6 speed along with the Ford ownership in full swing. Technically 1998 was the last true production Volvo only year but 1999 was still a decent car with coil packs and a ETM the only real updates. Surprisingly easy to work on overall if a FWD model, wish all Volvos had a heater core that can be done in less than an hour!!

I will be driving a 1994 silver 945T with Hydra wheels if anyone can hopefully direct me to whoever might have a 50-42 for sale should be at Cates late morning/noonish.

So the wife and I are staying in Langford at the little RV park by western speedway. I've been working on call, lots of odd shifts, overnights, etc., So I've maybe not been paying a ton of attention to the real world.

Got off work at 5 this morn, go to sleep. Wake up at 7 BRAAAP BRAP BRAAAAAAP! What the?!?!?

Look out the window and it's drift day at the speedway!
I've had little sleep for the last three days, but I'm not even mad. There's at least two 740s and 1 240 so far.

Gonna be a good (tired) morning!
