Congrats dude! Keep an eye on the two year old. They can be sneaky in how they punish the younger one. Sometimes a hug is not a hug...

awesome, congrats AJ! I just became an uncle again yesterday. Not that much fun when they're football sized but I'll have to give him a couple years.

re: AW50-42 , I thought 1999+ had the 5 speed auto, but after checking it turns out they went to the garbage 5 speed auto in 2001. One of the volvospeeder duders that will be there on Saturday might have an extra one of them.

Congrats AJ!

It's the wife's birthday this Saturday so a car meet isn't an option.

Did you give the bigger one a turbo button to press when they want you to go faster?

Nah, you give them control of the bottle.


Congrats AJ!

Seven adults belted into a 245 is a good time too.

Your original thought was correct. 5 speed auto's were 99+

Would be nice to locate a 50-42LE before long as I am hoping to re and re while the weather is still co operating - apparently 1999 was the last year for the 4 speed auto, 2000 had the 5 speed and the 2nd generation platform ( 2001 + ) had I believe the 6 speed along with the Ford ownership in full swing. Technically 1998 was the last true production Volvo only year but 1999 was still a decent car with coil packs and a ETM the only real updates. Surprisingly easy to work on overall if a FWD model, wish all Volvos had a heater core that can be done in less than an hour!!

I will be driving a 1994 silver 945T with Hydra wheels if anyone can hopefully direct me to whoever might have a 50-42 for sale should be at Cates late morning/noonish.

So the wife and I are staying in Langford at the little RV park by western speedway. I've been working on call, lots of odd shifts, overnights, etc., So I've maybe not been paying a ton of attention to the real world.

Got off work at 5 this morn, go to sleep. Wake up at 7 BRAAAP BRAP BRAAAAAAP! What the?!?!?

Look out the window and it's drift day at the speedway!
I've had little sleep for the last three days, but I'm not even mad. There's at least two 740s and 1 240 so far.

Gonna be a good (tired) morning!

Default Volvo S80 parts available locally, for a limited time.

Hi folks,
So I bought a winter beater a couple of months ago, so I wouldn't have to drive the rusty snot rocket in the rain.

Instead of getting something sensible, I was mesmerized by the letter "T" and the number "6" and foolishly purchased my first FWD Volvo, a 1999 S80 T6.

The T6 is a very nice engine, I really like it.

The rest of the car is crap. Sure it's really comfortable and luxurious, but I never imagined that 268hp could be so incredibly boring to drive.

Also, the tranny is as fragile as glass, and every single part of the car that contains electronics is flakey. Everything. From the radio with a screen that works for ten minutes a month, and randomly reprograms its presets, to fog lights that exist, but can't be switched on, high beams that won't latch on, climate control that has its own agenda, the list goes on.

Anyway, to get to the point, the ETM (electronic throttle) crapped out over the weekend, and I've had enough. After getting towed home, I bought a van to drive to work, and after I yank the T6 out of this piece of crap, it's going to the crusher.

It's getting scrapped soon, because it can't live in front of the house for more than a few days.

All parts except the engine are available cheap while it lasts.

It has a black leather interior in really nice shape.

I have a new set of wiper blades, not yet installed.

edit: he's asking about the interior trunk panels / spare tire cover etc. what kind of shape is that stuff in?

That stuff is in great shape, I was remarking how nice it is when I was pulling it off to try and get the parcel shelf speakers out last night. I don't think I wrecked any of it, but I can double check.

It has the big rubber mat back there, that's why my tools didn't trash the trunk.

Tell him to act fast, once the engine is out, I'm calling for the final tow, I need to beat the bylaw guy.

On that note, I'm off to work on it.
