Post pics of your Volvo.

Hello from a former forum user (I signed up here before buying my current Volvo).

I bought a 1986 245 GL with the B230A/AW70 combo back in April this year after looking for the right one since 2010-ish.

I wanted to share a few pics of this low mileage wagon (it's done just under 120000km/74560-ish miles as of October 2023) in 37 years.

Hopefully I can find some inspiration for it here (also, can an admin DM me please?)

Haven't logged into the board after almost 20 years. Here is my 1985 240 (North East US)

- Ford 338 5.4L Stroker with all forged Internals @ 350HP NA. Can withstand 500HP with Supercharger addon(3,000 Miles on motor)
- Upgraded TKO 600 5-Speed (Can withstand 700HP+)
- Needs wheels/tire/LSD

Had been siting in my garage for decade + and getting it back operational.

Unfortunately I have ZERO time and have moved to other hobbies. I will list on E-Bay Very soon.

Although the color didn't really come out right, it's really a bit lighter like the original color, I think this color looks gorgeous. Please excuse the layer of dust on the roof and the battery charger in the front right corner. This project has been sitting for about a decade. Hurricane Sandy had flooded my house, I got divorced, I moved, I got remarried (yes, she wants me to finish the car), and I've been working a million hours preparing for my retirement in about 15 months.

Waiting on adapters to mount these. Not sure if I want to keep them silver or maybe go for gold with polished lips. 🤔 Also, for the moment will be using the original center caps with a volvo sticker but looking into getting some waffle style center capsIMG_9672.jpegIMG_9674.jpeg
