People think Volvos are good cars until they drive cars that are actually good.

How much does the caravan weigh and what do you tow it with?

245 doing its best late 960 grille impersonation.



Most snow has been removed from it now. Roof support stringers aren't bonded to the panel, so the panel can dent with weight applied to it.

*edit* Mostly cleaned off.

Caravan is 1,2 ton full weight and we use XC90 D5 for that. You do need a BE license for that as the whole weight goes above 3,5 tons.

I drove it a little bit, but the short wheelbase is a bit dangerous especially with my tires. I much preferred driving the 245 (not pictured) around. Nice NB! I could use the cylinder head..

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

Not going anywhere for a couple days at least, looks like... Have to clear about 1.5'-2' of snow off the driveway, get rid of a tree that fell down, then I might be able to make it to the cul de sac.
