    That's what she said. No, they are KWV2 installed with some neg camber. Iphone pic distorts it, they look straight in person.

    Edited 06/11/2015: I originally purchased this car from my father back in 2005 for $7000 with 57,000 miles. It was not my first Volvo (244 DL I wish I still had), but it introduced me to the world of turbocharged Volvos. Here it is in its virgin state. I drove it as a daily while modifying it until last year when I decided to finally ditch the automatic transmission. Here are a few pictures of it along the way. 4/10/2010 ... Picked it up from Aaron's (thanks ajhehr) today as it now has a 5-speed M56h from a 02' C70 (thanks Mecay), Quaife ATB LSD (thanks Mogatu'r), KWV2 coilovers (thanks Zaitz), and TT ECU (thanks Adam/turbotuner). Took some pictures as it got a wash, and its a nice day. Going to leave it like this for a while and play with the TT and possible upgrade to a TD04HL once I get comfortable tuning. I'll probably get a dyno run in a few weeks to see where the tuned map is (saw 15 psi today). Anyone contemplating doing a 5-speed swap, its the way to go . Enjoy. And for giggles, the last picture I have of it since I haven't driven it for 26 months, and when we were an all Volvo family.

    Went out two weekends ago with some locals. Next to a custom painted V70 "slab." Blew an intercooler hose on Sunday trying to get a log, glad I had a vice grip and leatherman in my dash.

    Seats look like new, as when I got them. I think this car has less than 3000 miles in the last 5 years. I suppose a cage and harness are next if i can get the car tuned properly.

    Steering wheel and fire extinguisher mounted. I also had paintless dent repair done to the whole car. For $400 all six panels look like glass. I cannot believe how good it looks. 23 years of dings and dents gone.

    Gun Control Debate

    For the common person, who is not really into guns, their motivation to own one is usually home protection/personal defense. I need to protect family/property. I am fine with someone like Chuck owning an arsenal, because that's what he does, but for public health people who think they need one and getting one to be "safer", all data shows it only increases their risk of being shot by owning one. What say you Charles? Should there be a gun in every home, car, carry, and purse?

    I am fine, we made sure to buy our first home in one of the highest points of inner Houston - with good drainage. We did get 8-10 inches in an couple hours three separate times. The culverts on both sides are about four feet deep from the lawns. My street on the 2nd of three bad rain events from Harvey. Aaron Hehr is also ok and his shop didn't get flooded as far as I know. Lucas I do not know about, he lives south of Houston and they got it worse. Juan had one of his his Volvo's flooded but I didn't here anything bad about his home or family. Many of my friends had their houses completely flooded, and still have feet of water in their homes as of now, and are not allowed to go to them.

    That really got to you last year, sorry about that. I stopped caring once I found out how small-minded the prick was behind them.

    2020 Presidential Campaign

    I think this guy could be president someday. He's your typical liberal pussy. http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/07/28/seth-moulton-congressman-run-president-2020-profile-215428 Moulton pivoted to the president. “When people say Donald Trump ‘tells it like it is,’ it’s a crooked way to get at the same thing,” he said. “Like, they’re so anxious for somebody who will just be honest as a politician that they voted for a guy who’s absolutely dishonest but he just says things in a sort of, quote-unquote ‘real’ way. Right? That’s what people are yearning for...Of course you should expect your leaders to tell the truth. When I went through [Officer Candidate School], you could fail a test, you could fail an academic test, an athletic test—like, they give you a second shot. But if you lied about anything, you were gone immediately. Pack your bags and you’re out. And by the way, when you fail out of OCS, you don’t go in to be an enlisted Marine—you just go home. Like, that’s how important integrity is. And so we just need more of that. And people in America know that.”

    How Your Car Sits

    Cool, I want to punch every new yorker that says it that way. How are the Infiniti fourms treating you? What are you going to do with the car since it came pre-lowered with brembo's and rims? Please tell me you vape now, the Volvo you just sold has 100% more character.
