  1. The Rockway Chronicles

    Wow man what a beautiful home! I'm sure you two will be very happy there. And that shop is the stuff dreams are made of.  Congrats on the engagement too! I'm going out today and buying a ring for my girl. 
  2. Rare Volvo Parts

    Love the wheel!! It would look completely out of place in my car I think, but I still want one. 
  3. Headrest coat rack

    I've been keeping an eye out for one for ages and have never found anything that you can fit without having to raise the headrest up. Hopefully someone has a link to one though!
  4. The 98 V70R Costly affect

    I've been mapping out what I want to do, only spend a grand or so thus far with mine. But dang yeah I could buy a pretty nice car for what I'm planning to spend! But we do get attached to these cars... But I defend myself by saying there is really no newish car out there for $15k that I like anywhere near as much as my C70, so it's all good! That's what I tell myself anyways. 
  5. Logan's C70 Improvements Thread

    Well this training has given me a lot more downtime than I expected, so I've been getting a bit of a solid plan together for the car. Take a look and tell me what you think!  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hLin3ARbyPPY-vs-SA1fr-AQY9xeTkZiZEitf2b3Tqk/edit?usp=sharing I've got a full suspension rebuild kit from FCP ready to go in when I get done with training, I went with the Bilstein tourings, after reading nothing but good things about them.  So I should be home soon, get the suspension sorted out and a new set of tires, then off to life's next adventure! 
  6. Logan's C70 Improvements Thread

    A slight change of plans with the car for right now...  I have taken a job as a first officer with a small New England airline called Cape Air. I'll be leaving for Cape Cod MA tomorrow morning for 2 months of training, and then I'll find out where I'll be based. Shooting for somewhere in New England, maybe Maine.  Unfortunately, when I took the car to my trusty mechanic for a once over before beginning the 17 hour road trip, he discovered a broken delta bushing on the rear suspension. Not a huge deal, and he wanted a very reasonable $300 to do the job. That was last week, and as I've driven the car this week, the right front strut has completely failed. I guess having it up on the lift and moving the strut around so much finally did it in. Not to mention that my tires are almost completely bald! This all has happened in the past week, and I have no time or money to fix the car right now. So under the cover it goes for the winter. I'm hoping to save up some money over the next 3-4 months, and use my newly minted airline travel benefits to pop back to Kentucky occasionally to work on it. Once I have a repaired suspension (I'm thinking Koni FSD and IPD blues) and new tires, the car and I will set off for whatever exciting new place I'll be living in after training!!!

    Well I've got one wheel finished! It's not perfect, but it's sooooo much better. Keep in mind I wasn't going for perfection, just more presentable. I don't have the money to have them redone professionally, but I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out. 3 more to go... Finished wheel by Logan Abner, on Flickr

    Thanks man! I'm really hoping to make it next year. Got a job interview next month that might put me up in that neck of the woods haha. I think 2011 was the last Carlisle I went to, and I miss it!!
  9. Logan's C70 Improvements Thread

    I'm starting on these nasty looking wheels finally. Got the first one off and cleaned up a bit. I had them plastidipped years ago, and there was still some remnants of that in the crevices of the wheels. That's all gone now and ready for sanding and primer. I'll be using the Duplicolor Hyper Silver kit, I've heard very good things about it. Not shooting for perfection here, just want them to look a bit better than they do now.  Wheels by Logan Abner, on Flickr Threw a wheel from the parts car onto mine, so I can still drive it in the meantime. I actually think it looks alright! Anybody know what these are called? Wheels by Logan Abner, on Flickr

    A good parts car comes in handy in all sorts of ways!! I made my dog a bed today so he could hang out comfortably in the garage with me haha Deuce by Logan Abner, on Flickr

    Yeah it's going to be an interesting project... My flight instructor salary is not helping things much, but I'm hoping to have most of the big projects done in time for Carlisle next year.  I live in a townhouse complex, and my neighbors love the parts car too! :D
  12. Logan's C70 Improvements Thread

    Hello Volvospeeders! I figure it's about time to start a little thread for my humble C70. Some of you might find this one a bit boring, and that's ok with me. The plan is just to have a nice, well-rounded GT cruiser that I can enjoy in the twisty bits every now and then.  A quick history of my C70, it was my first car, bought about 9 years ago as a well cared for 30k mile peach of a car. I've done my best over the years to keep it nice, and have made some wonderful memories with it along the way! I'm sure I don't have to explain why I love the thing so much, we've all been charmed by Volvos of this era. Comfortable, well made, stylish, etc etc etc. Just a perfect blend of all the qualities I look for in a car. I've had plenty of opportunities to upgrade over the year, but I could just never bring myself to sell it. Somewhere along the way, I decided to just hang onto it for as long as I can, hopefully forever!  I went off to college in Tennessee a few years ago, and my parents decided to lease me a small Japanese appliance to drive for those few years. In the meantime, the Volvo sat pretty much untouched. I tried to come home and drive it every couple of months, which kept it alive, but it was definitely neglected.  So now, I'm all graduated and with a decent job, so I have set off to make my car what I've always dreamed it could be!  Volvo C70 detailed by Logan Abner, on Flickr C70 by Logan Abner, on Flickr Started off small, new battery, a thorough detailing, an oil change, and just some general love haha. Then onto the leaky cooling system, replaced this nasty tank along with all the hoses and clamps.  Volvo work by Logan Abner, on Flickr And just been fixing up small things, interior lights burnt out, power seats not working, etc. I've really become a stickler for little things like that!  Up next is the PCV service, refinishing the wheels, and still saving up for a complete brake and suspension overhaul. Also, I've bought a $500 parts donor car for an M56 swap. I'm really hoping to be able to do the swap soon.  Volvo C70 by Logan Abner, on Flickr Volvo C70 by Logan Abner, on Flickr I'm quite an amateur mechanic, learning as I go along. So it's slow going, but having a great time! The final plan for now is like I said earlier, just to have a super clean, elegant coupe. I want the nicest interior possible for the car, slightly lowered, and a nice exhaust. That's about it really! 
  13. Bought another Volvo I said... it'll be fun I said!

    Subscribed!!! Looks like a fun project.

    First real work on the C70 in a couple of years! Flushing out the coolant system, installing a new coolant reservoir and replacing all the related hoses.  Volvo by Logan Abner, on Flickr
