Gary, How's that RWD lifestyle? Am I missing out? Should I make a change?

It's definitely something to consider. I'll probably always have a Volvo but I won't modify one again.

Looks good... you need clear side markers now! Also, are the calipers just plain gold or do they have the brembo emblem on em?

 

They are gold with red Brembo logo.  They are going to be red with white brenbi logo pretty quickly though.

Drove my T-5R for the first time

Took my S70 out to get some groceries and blow the dust off. It's been parked since Oct.

How do you store the black S70?

Unplug battery? Tender?

In the garage with the battery unhooked. The T-5R just sat for 18 months. I bought it but never actually drove it before.

I have a bunch of batteries from all my different parts cars, so i'll typically throw in the best one I have. I often have to give them a bit of a charge first though.

What the heck is up with red 850R owners not driving their cars? With how good they look, you would think they'd want to show 'em off a bit more on the streets. :closedeyes:

That is a great question.  I've had mine for over two years and I've driven it a whopping 564 miles.  The last two guys hardly drove it, either.  It's done 20k miles since 2010.

 

 

In my case, it's probably because I bought it with a seized engine and then bought a yellow T-5R estate in the middle of planning my build.......and having another working car / another car to spend time working on has allowed / caused me to drag my feet on that build something awful.

Rear muffler delete? How's it sound??

I've been thinking about doing this, but the crack upstream near the flex joint gives my XC plenty of growl :a-farmboy:
