Someone should buy those wheels. If you don't have the money, talk to me about a loan, but those should come into the Tbrix community...

Just grabbed some browntops from the same guy, then lo and behold emrit71 shows up to look at the wheels from the same guy. They look alright, guy was a Turbobricker before. Putting in a word for a friend for these, hope he gets them.

Yeah, we hung out for a bit after that. If I recall correctly, he had a huge, long username on here. Had a white 1990 745, M46, 16G turbo and goodies.

Whatever happened to that car? It really ain't that bad, 400k km notwithstanding.

So HaggardRob and I went to check out a guy parting out his 745T. This is what ended up happening. The guy has TWO identical, 1990 745Ts and both are manual. Ha.

There have been scattered, reported sitings of him driving. I think I saw him a year or two ago on the Port Mann.

He's still selling off 240's on craigslist. Email him and ask him haha.

It's not you selling that side exit exhaust set-up on CL, is it?

Seems to me the cat alone is worth more in scrap than what you are asking.

Not interested in that kind of arbitrage myself...

Yeah, that's me. I might just scrap it, but seeing if someone wants to take it all and play with it.

wheel weights on the rear rims rub the brake calipers under hard breaking, took them off and ordered some 5mm spacers to stance them out a bit and clear the wheel weights. I'm doing a brake job today, i'll see if I can snap a TB-approved "rims laid in front of car" pic today

Can this be? Another local? D:

And apparently you bought those rims from one of the three Asian Volvo tuners in Vancouver.

Not as good of a deal as he paid for them...

And as for meets, see kardboard's sig:

Quote:
ermit71: Every few years two or three people will get together and talk quietly about volvos. Afterwards they never speak of it again. No evidence is ever found. That is the Vancouver way.
The only "regular" meet is the cates park event put on by the volvo club of bc in the summer. Lately me and Aj meet in a random parking lot buying/selling parts to eachother. Haha


Let's get a meet going soon guys!
