Thanks guys for the compliments
I like the Volvo I've been lucky so far... no tickets I've had it up to 220kph on the Hwy 400
Holds on to the road nice Still easy to handle.
I'm not gonna keep it thow. It's an exspensive car to maintain 13" rotors with 4 piston calipers and 11" rotors on the back. 3 onboard computors that monitor everything you could posibly emagine
Needless to say, every time I take it in for service. One of the computors is carrying a fault.

One day I got S@$t from my mechanic because I didn't allow suficiant time for the car to worm up before allowing the turbo to spool up to peek boost. How the hell did you know that ??? The computer knows all. darn !!! even my car gets me in trouble. It's gotta go. LOL

This one I picked up this past spring (April 09)
It's my 1957 Chevy Panel Van.
Pretty solid except for a rotten rock/step







THIS IS WHAT I HOPE IT WILL LOOK LIKE REAL SOON

gotta love the new cars.. lol. all that car really needs is a blow off valve, manual boost controler and maybe some hard piping for the intercooler and it would make more power.. lol. also i recomend getting a turbo timer if you get on it alot.. a hot turbo will carmelize oil and then you will be getiing a big bill from the dealership..

While I was looking for parts for my Panel Van I stumble across this beauty at
the Barrie car show.
I had to have it.
It's a 1957 B model Mack.













HERE IS WHAT IT'S GONNA LOOK LIKE WHEN I'M DONE

You know what ??? I'm not touchin it. Me and computers, are like my wife and power tools... Not a good combo.
Anyways .. I don't keep my foot in it long enaugh. I guess that's why I've been luck and haven't gotten a speeding ticket yet

Beautiful 57's In2Trux! Even rusty, they look great. You've got a lot of work ahead, but it will be well worth it. And FTR, the Volvo is nice too. Is it the AWD version?

Thanks Rob
Yeah my Volvo is AWD

240s are awesome at least you can work on them in the driveway. Mine was designed so you couldn't unless you had a lap top and the appropreate software.

Do you have pics up of you 240 Mike??
