        Awesome volvos. Neighbor of mine is the original owner of a silver 242 turbo, with all the bells and whistles. Immaculate car - have always lusted over it.

          I hope so! I intend to put a new chassis under it with bags all round set up to lay frame, IFS and 4 linked rear, power steering, disc brakes and some sort of LS. Perhaps a 5.3 or 6.0 truck motor with an LSA blower on it and a T56. I have a 8.8 inch ford LSD rear end sitting behind my e30 waiting for it. The truck has been known as the beast in our family for like 30 years so I intend on it being a beast... At least more so than the I6 automatic it has currently... Also I'm gonna leave it with the patina for a while, and not mess with the nearly minty interior it has.

            That'll be sick. I find myself appreciating the older stuff more and more and it is great to see the stuff restored and taken care of.

The auto is swappable, but I don't think it's near as simple as the E30 swap. And you're in Portland, which is ipd volvo parts central.
            I love the 12x's and the 14x's. Those and the Alfa GTAs are my all time favorites in the looks department. Yeah, I wouldn't buy it to 'compete' with the E30, just to appreciate it and hold it.

                  Stripped Engine Block Threads



                  Had a head gasket leak, so I began to dig into it today. Turns out the threads gave out on the engine block for one of the head bolts... sigh

                  Anyone have a Time-Sert 1090 kit they would be willing to rent?

                  Or any other tools/ideas you may have... Getting another block would be cheaper than buying one of these things.

                    Dropped the E30 off at haurys, fingers crossed its done by picnic!

                      I have a cheap B25 bottom end if you want it. $150, comes with a nice oil pan!

                          Just those front panels you saw that were primered, well, and my mirrors, IS lip, skirts, and spoiler.

                            Great, that was the direction I was headed. I don't really trust Helicoil or Time-Sert for a headbolt. PM inc!

                                I have one that can be borrowed or bought. I won't be going up to Leavenworth, but someone in Oregon that is going can pick it up.

                                Picture in my PNW FS thread if you would want to buy it.
