Nice car and nothing wrong with those wheels. You also have a nice ride height for snow.

Wow thanks you all i will certainly not touch it no more, i spent the last years restoring it ;) when i bought it, it didnt even have power steering
And about the rust, i live in the north of northen sweden, so here we have either tons of snow or very warm and nice summers and no salt on the roads Come pay a visit
and emkindle, ill bring them over when i go on my since long planned trip the the states ;)

Here comes some pictures of my other cars, past and present.
If anyone want some pictures of something specific, just let me know, i have tons.

Here are some photos of my 1977 242 GL restoration done in 2010, Volvo paint code 126, Champlain blue metallic, a rare colour used only in 1977 and 1978, mostly on 264's and on some GL 240's

I'm trying to think of all the things I'd do to get ahold of your headlights.

Love the car.
