As long as you're all OK.

Cars can be replaced.

Keep the wheels. Was it an SE?

Yes, SE. From Northport Connecticut originally, Melvyn Goldman was the op. I googled the ops address, it was swanksville. Car had a good life. How it ended up here I don't know. Thank you Volvo, good times were had by all.

So while I was on the phone with ICBC I went on CL to look for a new ride.
Third posting was this 945t, $400 at a little used volvo/subaru lot. looked reasonable from the one picture.
Got off the phone and jumped in a cab to go check it out.
Arrive at shop, so far so good.
PO bought a new ride from them and didnt want this one anymore. They dont want it cause they dont really mess with RWD anymore. PO signs it over and leaves, says he'd be happy with four hundred.

So for four hundy I got me a typically roached 945t with 415 kms on the clock.
No piston slap, no strange noises at all really. Engine pulls well, much better with the boost leaks sealed up. A bit of oil spotting out back, turbo seals maybe?
No major dings, paint faded to crayola color that 601 red always gets.
Interior is okay leather, drivers seat is garbage but the rest are nice.

This is the fourth red volvo in a row. I am not trying to do this, I dont even like red.
Damn things just keep popping up.

Oh man, that's a bummer.

Glad to hear everyone is okay.

ICBC will probably sell it back to you for about $250, well worth
it, at least if you are planning on getting another one, or are
willing to sell some parts.

Too bad it happened during a move, but at least you are moving to
a great place, I'm a little jealous.

edit:
Just saw the new ride, Nice! way to bounce back.

Yeah, not too sure what to do. I won't be around for the buy back, I think I'm just gonna pull some interior stuff and call it good.
The 945 ain't too shabby though, eh?

Ah, hence all the Volvo stuff on CL from who I assumed was you! Glad to hear you're all OK, sorry to hear about the 245.

What year is the 945?

Yeah, that's my stuff. Gotta shed some tonnage for the move.
945 is a 92. I'm sure someone on here knows it, ipd stickers in the doorsill, funny little plaque from a show at Docksteader in 94. PO was working on salvation season 2, car was owned by a production company on Union.
I can't believe how well it runs given the mileage and general neglect.

Bummer about the 240. I hope that's not the one you just swapped the transmission in.

Glad everyone is alright. I love that you doubled the price you paid for the 245 and cumulatively are still well under a grand.

Yeah Bill, same car. 120k motor too.
If I had time I'd swap the motor before icbc comes to get it. Oh well.

Hey guys, I've got a 240 cupholder armrest with both brackets. Armrest has chipped corners and coffee residue. Its not gross or anything but i bet you have a nicer one.

Looking for $80 for the brackets. Armrest is free with purchase of brackets.

I'm gonna put it on CL this evening, just thought I'd give you guys first chance at it.

Yeah Azro!
Shady was my impression.
But no, it was a trade in they didn't want to mess with. 415k kms, looks like it wasn't totally neglected, runs quiet enough I think its a second or third engine.

I've taken it to mission and back and pushed it pretty hard on the highway. It took it like a champ.

I'll continue stress testing when I get to the island but for now I'm pretty comfortable it won't blow up soon.

Hey guys, I just put some totes of random stuff in the lane behind my house. Theres some decent stuff there, +t bits, interior, some old switches, a blue manual window door card, just a lot of odds and ends.
Feel free to come take a look. I'm gonna have to turf it tomorrow, I'm hoping some of it can live on.
6908 Kerr in the lane. I covered the totes.

Unfortunately no, most everything really desirable either got sold or has been transported to storage already.

I seem to keep wandering further from Volvodom. This is the latest madness:



'58 Citroen 2cv. 12.5 hp of fury!

Not sure where I'll go if I keep following the smaller and less powerful trend. A Peel P50? Moped?

Came into cell range from jordon river this morning and it happened.
I just got the much anticipated call from ICBC regarding my ex 240se.

I've been joking about getting a $100 offer from them...

I am in a state of shock, I cannot believe their valuation of the vehicle.
I am stunned.
Seriously stunned.

$2080, final offer.

I mean, I loved that car, but it was like five hundy tops.

$2080 is just about $1000 shy of EVERYTHING I had into that car over 3 years. That includes initial purchase.

I'm just going to gracefully accept that the 240 was nicer than I thought. I feel good about this.

I'm looking at it like this.
I paid $400 for the 945t that replaced the 240,now I have $1680 to spend on it. It needs it.

I'm headed back to Jordon River tonight, loving it.

This might be a long shot but is there anyone local that either has a good used AW 50-42LE transmission for my 1999 V70 NA or perhaps a place to strip a another same year V70? I could purchase a parts car and allow the individual that could help out with space to take/use useful parts from the V70 for themselves as well. I saw a transmission for sale on Craigslist not long ago for 250.00 OBO from a '96 850 that was being converted to a manual but the ad either expired or the transmission sold.Not sure if it was a member.


It has been a bit of a pain as this '99 V70 is in very nice condition overall, bought it cheap as the transmission was fried from coolant mixing in the atf and the replacement I installed was suffering the same problem with some water contamination which I unfortunately was not aware of until it was too late. Would love to get the car on the road as it only managed one trip before the trans. went.
