    The Baggie. Cos im addicted to these shitheaps....


    like a junkie neeeding fix after getting a centrelink payment, i managed to avoid volvos for approx 12 minutes since the trolvo left, before looking at new (read fuck-eyed) volvos. this ended when just before xmas i bought this from a young chippie from sorrento. it was the nearest cheap (not 5k plus thanks to latte loving hipster cunts) wagon. it has the 4 speed and later 2.2lh engine. :

    needless to say it needed work. the prev owner had bought it off a volvo club member. he had then spent hours fucking it by fiting a roof rack with self tappers, the earlier mirrors without the spacers so they flop like scomo in a crisis, and had fitted 2 242 gt alloys. he had also pulled the screen out due to rust, then primered it and left it alone. for months. so the floor was a swimming fucking pool. cunt. i paid $500 for it, due to 2 things. 1. its only got 200000km, and 2, its painted nissan night glow, a factory option on aussie volvos. its the only car in this color known to the club.
    i still paid $450 too much....

    undeterred i pulled the fucking mouldy carpet, cleaned all the fuse box and relays that were now full of water and got it running.

        If you want an ls car, go spend 5k on a vt?

            It's because you haven't Volo'ed yet. These old things are fantastic.

            Personally I hope you keep the dark green paint colour down the track.

              Parents had a 240GL wagon for ~20 years. Bought it new. Would love one with an LS! Always thought an RB25 would be neat too.

                I grew up in them, I have spent many many hours stirring up people from those god fucking awful rear facing seats.

                Big boat handling POS IMO.

                  I might be broken, because that looks pretty cool in green. Can't you boost these to 11ty psi?

                    You don't understand the appeal of putting a V8 in an old shitbox? Have you stumbled into the wrong forum by accident?

                      i actually looked at an rb30e one before this but it wasnt a wagon and i was dubious as no engineers cert though it was rego'd with the engine.

                        Fair cop.

                        Maybe my take is ruined from growing up in one, and seeing how badly they often went on the shit box rallies.

                        What ever, I mean Rob, go hard as you like man, I just dont get it.

                          its all good, one mans pot of shit is anothers pot of gold.

                          paint color is nissan night glow. do not ask supercheap to mix a nissan paint for your volvo. the young lads head nearly exploded.

                            Cool cars.
                            move worked on heaps. I even owned one for all of 4 hours.
