Crush it now and regret it later
We need laws for states to check for cut springs on vehicles. Mandatory background checks and and licenses suspended for 10 years. Report cut springs

Wait... You're taking a Volvo OUT of a scrap yard?

Damn. That's a truly righteous effort if I ever saw one.

BIG thanks to Luke! Despite today's "obstacles" at the end of the the day we still got it back on wheels.
Found some NOS stuff inside. Under body has almost zero rust!
Removed the front bumper. I will be using it to flat-tow the car home in a few days.
engine looked really clean inside too

2 miles? You are thinking g too hard.

Those bumpers aren't the strongest.

Take out your grill, hang a boat cushion on the front and push it home with another driver if the brakes work.

My kind of project!

Over in the UK everything thats already in a scrap yard can't legally come back out (mostly...) and TBH once an old car is in there, its usually because its no longer made from metal.

Struggling to find a worthy 145 (and there are no 122 here) that I won't spend 2 years cutting rust out of, seriously thinking of getting someone to send me a rolling shell from the US as shipping and duties will run to less than rot removal.

Push it up and let it coast down, you have to cast off around street corners anyway when you push them.

Im not an animal. I use a hitch

Got it home today!
The front brakes were "stuck" since the backing plates got bent onto rotors when it was laid down without tires. Pushed them out with a screwdriver

Looks like an abused puppy stunned that someone is being kind to it

242- Just about everything was wrong with it. You can see more of it in my m3 build.
