  1. Still here! Come and go. The car thing has become a night or two a week in my garage, don't really get out to any more meets. Going to do some Road America weekends this summer though. Busy with the girls - 2.5yo, 11mo, and another due in November. All girls so far, might be following in your footsteps. Haha And that beer garden has kind of evolved into something not as great once the BID took it over. It's too bad. But we're completely redesigning our Village Park in the downtown and making a dedicated Plaza space for the beer garden. Then it will be cool again. But we live in Cedarburg just a couple blocks from downtown, so if you are ever up this way we would absolutely be up for an evening at one of the local places.
  2. Trailing arm bushing in the XC70. There's a special tool to press in a new one that runs $250+. Just pulled the whole thing and took it to a small volvo shop. In the e30 I changed the transmission fluid with a mixture of gear oil and ATF which seems to have eliminated the gear rattle from the lightweight flywheel.
  3. Tomorrow night I start working on the PS trailing arm bushing in the XC70. 😩
  4. Yup. 08 with the 3.2l. I really like it. I love the interior on these and their relatively minimalist design. Fits 2 car seats in the back with enough room for the middle portion of the rear seat to folders down to pass stuff through. And one of my favorite parts is the storage under the floor in the trunk. It's a very functional car.
  5. I posted what I was going to my wife's Volvo. To appease the Volvo Gods, wash to rinse off the salt. But more importantly, new steering wheel for the fun car.
  6. So why don't you drive it? Good lord people still say "caRs". That is the dumbest volvo thing I can think of. Doing the pcv on Katherine's XC90. I can't even. And my bmw is slowly going back together.
  7. It was broken when I went outside. No sign of impact, nothing in the car touched, nothing on the ground in or around the area of the car. I still have my headlights. it's also already fixed.
  8. XC70 didn't care for the -26° we had this morning apparently
  9. Hitch for the XC70 Lightweight flywheel and spare drivetrain for the e30.
  10. Warm enough to clean the car outside today.
  11. New family friendly daily.
  12. Rear seats and door cards are original red leather, the front seats were recovered and are vinyl. Still look really good though.
