  1. I forgot that generation S80 existed.
  2. My friend and I did the Overcrest Rally last weekend. We were supposed to be in his whiteblock swapped 240, but he broke it, and we ended up taking my e30. About 400 miles over a day and a half. It was an absolute blast.
  3. I finally found cars that are very good at doing what they are trying to do. But next year I'll be adding another car to the club when we're back in our house and the garage becomes my shop.
  4. New wheels for the wagon and generally driving the bmw whenever it’s nice out. I've had the bmw for just a little over 2 years now and the wagon will have been mine for 2 years in December. Crazy.
  5. All done painting and finally driving it.
  6. Ran out of primer. The driver side and roof still need a couple more coats. But, after some trial and error using an HVLP gun, I eventually got the hang of it and am overall happy with the results so far.
  7. He sets up one of these in the shop while he works. As long as you put out a couple bowls of food and water, kids are usually fine for a while.
  8. It's really cool. She has been waiting to get an XC90 in June for a few years, but was unsure with three kids and looking at other brands that offered the second row captain seats. Volvo announced they were doing it and she was so excited. If I moved on the from the wagon, I would be looking for the same XC90 you are. Anyways. Back on topic. I still have the e30. It's stripped down for the winter - patching rust holes, reinstalling and refreshing the whole AC system, rebuilding the rear subframe, all new brake lines, calipers, rotors, and pads, sound deadening the interior, wheel b
  9. 2020. It's the first year where they introduced the 6 seater XC90. So the second row of seats are captains. Easier to put two in the second row and the oldest in the third row. I was thinking about getting an P2 XC90, but the P3 XC70 is actually wider in the rear seat. The three car seats fit better in the 70 than they do in the 90. I was also looking at the new V60s and V90s, but same story, they're like two inches narrower in the rear seat hip room than the XC70 - which is a lot when you have to fit three car seats. So I'll be sticking with the XC70.
  10. If it was up to Katherine, she'd have a small herd of children. She stays home with them, so we don't have the ridiculous costs of daycare thankfully. And she's getting the new 6-seater XC90 this year to better accomodate the family.
  11. It gets worse with 3 kids. Three Across in the XC70.
