Default I'm a sick, sick man...

So I guess my illness is running it's course.
96 960.







Seems like the intake manifold is leaking somewhere - She drives out good, but idles like crap. No biggee - it let me work 500 bucks off the asking price!

Next stop is WalMart for some Oops and a razor blade... Stickers - Blech!

Well, let's see... The DD is the silver wagon. My wife will likely pick up the 8 or the 9 (once the 9 is fixed and the 8's motor is back together).

Then I have a daughter about to turn 16 in 8 months...

The silver has most of the details here:

I have seen that thread man, just wondering if you have any more updated pics of her.


You have a daughter that's going to turn 16? Yikes! Which one will you let her drive? Or do have anymore in your stables that your not telling us about.

you ARE sick.


not nearly as sick as the person that sold that though.

here, that car would have no paint, no motor, no seats, no wheels, and would still be spoken for to the tune of 2 g.

Gatti: The 7 has 2 surprises on the way... So don't tell her that a 15g is being reclocked for her, k? She's also getting an aluminum hood off the parts car I bought. Shhhh...

jumpy, Seats/interior = GORGEOUS, paint/body notsomuch. Actually, the paint is good except where the PPO crashed it into stuff.

I have to put my Cetus wheels w/tires on it and clean it up a bit, fix the intake... Then see here we are.

I'd make the 965 a donor for the 745 for parts..... I will do it one day, or maybe not.

AWESOME buy man! Look like it just needs the bumpers painted and the rest of the paint buffed and waxed. As for the intake manifold; it's probably the intake manifold gasket (to head) which is a fairly common failure on until they introduced a better (green) gasket in '97 or '98 (my V90 has the green gasket). The older gasket that tends to fail is orange. Anyway, that's likely the problem, and an easy fix. Other then that, follow tjts1's instructions and you should have a very happy 960. Great car How many miles on it?

actually chris, we've been reviewing you prognosis down here at work and we've come up with a formula for you to determine if you are actually right. this works on anyone with a five door.

if the total square footage of each one of your car's cargo areas (with the seats down) meets or exceeds the square footage of wherever it is you're living at the time, then you are truly a sick, sick individual.

It's a story as old as time... Odometer broke and the cluster was replaced. Shows 90k, they figure there was 100k on the old one so ~200k.
EDIT: Found the sticker where they replaced the odo at 40k, so she has approx 136k.

Thanks for the tip! I hope to delve in this weekend - stupid dark-by-6PM crap!

You suck. I can't believe you couldn't save one for me. What is the deal with the one with the black wheels. I am now looking real hard at replacing my V70 with something I can hold the title to. Nice work on getting that! Envy!

I was TOTALLY ready to pass this one to you, but they bit on my offer and the Missus liked it. What could I do?

There's a 87 240 NA down in Decatur that I was going to look at. 750 asking - won't pass smog. I'll forward you the pics if you're interested. Looked good actually.

That one black wheel is a donut spare. My Cetus wheels from the 850 have great tires on them so that's where they will land. Ugly wheel + good tires = who cares about ugly wheels for a little while?
