Check out my reply to Nevada's reply to Al's Volvo post below for a few details, but yeah, it's a Volvo; I didn't want to mess with nursing that GTI I mentioned a while back from Pennsylvania to Kentucky with a bad tranny, and the Volvo was too good a deal to pass up.

Goin' for the most rambling sentence award,

My wife had a regular 740 GLE when we met...clapped out suspension, terrible electrics and almost 200k miles on the clock...but it ran great and was actually fun to drive, pitching it around corners while shouting "hard to port, ye scurvy bastard, hard to port!!"

Wish I had known about the bad harnesses those cars had, and the availability of replacements...I might still have that one as a winter beater today.

Again, nice Volvo!

If you are referring to my Volvo it is actually the 1800ES "The sports cat that hauls". Built 72-73 approx 8000 produced. Mine is a 72.

the thing will run like a tank in the snow! just keep an eye on that turbo and let it 'spool down' before shutting it off and put high(er) octane gas in it.

i left my first car a 240 turbo, at home when i went to college and my dad was nice enough to NOT listen to what his son about the turbo and the gas ("i'm not putting expensive gas in your (non)expensive car")

3 months later he calls me and say 'hey i think there is something wrong w/your car...it won't drive for shit!!

have fun w/it man!

...those plastic bucket mats from ipd look like the ticket for winter.

eEuroParts' web system won't work for me; it says nothing is listed for any car I enter...

But thanks anyway.

is a true Swede car nut and can answer a lot of questions via e-mail or over the phone. I don't know if those IPD mats are the genuine Volvo mats, but after riding around in a 760 Turbo for 6 years The plastic mats are great, there're acctually more of a rubbermade-ish material.

I good friend of mine just sold her 760 turbo (the vary one I was carted around in during HS/college) after 300,000 trouble free miles.

The new owner brought it to a quick lube place and they forgot to refill the engine oil. It died less than two weeks after the sale :-(

Between my dad and I, we've had about 7 or 8 of them in the family. From brand spankin' new 745ti, to a brand new 850T5-R, to my newest(and ugliest) 79 245DL. I was looking for a 745ti, but the 245 fell into my lap, so I'll take it. I'm thinking V8 swap, but I see an 83 760t for sale in the local paper for $250. Could be a good turbo donor!

It has a bad motor, which is very rare I hear, although it does has 353k miles on it. I got the car and a replacement motor for $600. Looks like its been garaged most of its life too. Not my cup of tea, but I'm fixing it for my Uncle who needs a commuter car...

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
