Default New member with a 1986 245 from Victoria, BC

Hi all! Just wanted to quickly introduce myself. My name is Anh and I'm from Victoria, BC, Canada. I'm somewhat of a wagon connoisseur and currently own a 1983 Corolla project / track car, a 1991 Accord daily and just picked up a one owner manual 1986 245. All are wagons partly because we have two young boys and need the extra storage space. Honestly though, I like long rooflines lol!

Anyway, plans for the blue 245 are - lots of suspension tuning, rust repair, semi-restoration and more power TBD. Hopefully in that order. Pics to follow...

Thanks and I'm looking forward to learning all about these bricks!

Welcome! A few of us BC folk are in the "Vancity Volvos" thread in Showroom. Well, most of us Metro Vancouver folks anyway.

mtd240: I suspect "the wives" have a super-secret forum to discuss whether or not they will let us buy Volvo parts.

Thanks for the warm welcome! Since my first post, I acquired a neglected grey 1985 245 intercooled turbo auto wagon. I also picked up a B234F head for a future 16v turbo build, so looking forward to lots of learning!
