Details on the 140 you're parting? Year? # of doors?

I'd be looking for chrome door handles, mirrors, tailgate handle, must be clean and shiny. Rust-free body parts ...
Hey man, it's a 1970 145. I may have access to a few other random parts by then as well. I'll send you a message.

I can't believe this is only 2 pages. I feel like it's gotten to 30+ pages in the past.

I'll be bringing a black 98 V70 base model(same car as last year) because I've been bedridden for the past week and won't have time to get my 240 or trailer ready. A little bummed about it.

Anyone wanna meet up at the Harrisburg Perkins for lunch on Friday?

I'll be there. Looks like I'm rolling up solo unless someone local decides to tag along, but I'll bring the monster hooptie

7 years in a row, of course I am! I'll be in the XC...unless maybe I can convince the coworker who wants to sell me his M3 to let me test drive it for the weekend.

I have a set of Volvo branded load bars for sale, if anyone wants to grab them off me. PM me so I know. Can't guarantee I'll be checking this thread.

woodenpudden has a mismatched pair, one old one new. good bushings. Free if you want them. I don't feel like pushing a car in to remove a pair.

*edit: I'll be going solo if Pete doesn't step up and meet me in Newark/Philly. I'm trying to lure him with burley oak sours. we'll see...

Yeah, that was cool. It almost looked like a 245 with 140 front end, I didn't get to look under the hood.

Y'all are awesome, as usual! Going back to the grind afterwards always sucks, though my liver is happy for the recovery time
