I'll do mine in chronological order

The day I got my 244 in February 2003

First official meet, Davis 2003. From right to left - VolvoRacer82 [Ryan, still here] with his maroon 242, I forget the dude with the gold 244's name [Vasir14?] I just remember Doug would always call him a squirrel, and my 244 next to him [2 months into 240 ownership, I was already blacking **** out and did a flathood conversion, not to mention damage from running into Noah's 244 the first time I met him]

Burgerball 2? 3? I just remember this being around September 2003. Doug and Pat D raced each other a few times, and than we went out on a cruise down Sunrise Saturday night

The next day we headed out to Sutter for a drive/lunch. In the last picture, thats Doug [Hank Scorpio] in the front, Noah244ti, Ryan [Volvoracer82], Justin [forgot his SN], Justin #2 [Norcal745ti], Alen and myself in the back.

Norcal Vs Socal Euro, Santa Barbara 2004. I got out of school in Phoenix, AZ at 9 pm the night before and drove all night for this. My best memory of this meet was the group of Volvos [all 20-30 of us] all having our hoods up while the other 1,000 BMW's/VW's/Audis etc had their hoods closed

Davis 2004, my car. Kind of riced.

Summer 2004 after getting my squares

Fall 2004

Simpler times indeed.

Oh wow, back when people on Turbobricks actually liked Volvos and other Volvo enthusiasts!

I always wonder what happened to Doug's 242. Blackbrick (IIRC) out on the east coast bought it, it was damaged during shipping, he got cancer and then we never heard of the car again. That car was a piece of TB history. I wonder how the owner is doing too.

Utility and comfort were the orders of the day. (for the record I still own several pairs of cargo shorts and the ones with the biggest pockets are designated for PnP runs! )

Liz and Towery meeting. Epic.

SoCalEuro- It was really cool to run into Noah back in January. Both of us have such different jobs from when we first met and yet we both ended up in similar fields and at the same trade show.
Hank Scorpio is from the Simpsons. You can call me Doug ;)
Will trade guitars/guitar parts for go fast goodies or stuff I need. Just PM.
