I love your dad's wheels! I had some 15" versions for a while... But they were mangled so I sold them. Here're some quick pics from this 35degree morning... Unlevel pavement, but you get the pictures.



Damn those are some crappy pictures... I really need to clean my car again(stupid F'n construction RIGHT in front of my house, including in my damn driveway) and take some good pictures of it now.

Hahaha, I love my ugly car, it's such a bastardization of parts. It's a really nice car to drive, just doesn't look so hot.



Looks great from the back though! Sorta



And here's an old picture of my car (different front end now as seen above), my brothers 242, and my eternal project silver wagon. There is an identical red 242 parts car right behind the 242 in that pic, hiding in the garage.

Got it fall 2003, did a "half restoration"- paint, fixed up suspension, ect
b20 overbore 2.1L, isky cam, headers, glass pack/resonator exhaust, IPd pushrods&lifters, double valve springs, got MS about a month ago,IPd sways & springs, KYB shocks

then... driving home I got rearended at 40mph by a classmate. We were both ok but his insurance would only pay $500.

So my dad's friend Mark told me to come chop up his 72 parts car- he lives in Traverse city-this was in febuary 2004.

Pulling out of 4 feet of snow with a '61 volvo tractor.


Gutting and chopping.


Loaded it into my dad's 245 for th drive back to Detroit.
back at home- off with the old:

on with the new



not too shabby for an afternoon's work.


Painted it in my driveway on good friday 2004


Been a daily summer driver ever since.

Billiam 500, your 142 is beautiful. Very Euro and clean (nice bumpers) and green is such a good Volvo color. I almost threw up when I saw that rear ended picture... Nice job fixing it though.
I painted my car too, in my barn (my friend in photo, not me):

Please show reverence for the WOW sticker.

1991 744T. 1994 b230ft, rebuilt longblock. M46, spec stage II hybrid (it squeals and I hate it). 15G from Herman. V15 @6*advance. Ipd sways and exhaust, Bilstein HD, Eurosporttuning springs. Volvo Comet wheels with Nokian WR's (A phenomenal all season; if you rack miles like me, it's a nice compromise; these tires are quiet and I drive them 80-110mph with no qualms on I-84 daily). Gilracing shift knob, Valentine 1. I was debating getting rid of it, but I'm going to get an M90 and keep it a few more years.

I love your 85 245. What wheels are on it. Does it have an m46 and black leather? Might be just like mine. I was never a huge fan of tineted windows, but they really look good on that silver wagon. Is that the original paint? It looks mint.

Do i know him? Haha.

I remember seeing you pull out of the lot once at some point.

Your dads friend in TC, does he have a bit of a volvo yard? Someone mentioned a volvo place near TC at one of the local BBQ events.

Old pic of my 88, airflow kit needs to be repainted, and those wheels will be back on for the dyno day of my project.

Black 91, snow on the camera, fun. Older pic.

Thanks

The wheels are 17x7.5" eiker polaris that i got from julio, unfortunately I bent two of them when I hit a nasty pothole, so for now I have black virgos until I come up with some money to straighten my eikers. It does not have an m46, yet, and the interior is blue. The tint is limo and the darkest I could legally go, but I need to get it redone. The texas sun has turned it purple. The paint is also not original, I was hit by a truck that ran a stop sign and I had enough extra money to have the whole car painted.
Here are the pics of the wreck, as you can see the paint was peeling before.
