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. 

 But did you find the dick that did it? 😉

Not Volvo, but good winter shenanigans. The Snowpocylpse didn’t materialize in Portland, but there was plenty up at Browns Camp, Tillamook State Forest

Thanks, yeah that Discovery is phenomenal in the snow, just goes wherever.

 

The Saffron is getting close. Engine build is done, and I believe the engine is getting dropped in this week. Aaron sent me a few pictures- I’ll update with a more complete project post when the car is done.

Thanks Andy, and Aaron deserves all the credit on this- all I’m doing is paying for it. I can’t wait for the finished product, should be fun.

OMG

Aaron (VA5T) is doing it?

YES we are going to need details on this bad boy. I have always liked how thorough your car was/is!

Yeah, Aaron is doing this part of the build. Started out as a GTX3071R and tubular exhaust manifold, but the project has expanded to complete built B5244T5 motor (Wiseco 81.5, Rods, shims). I’ll definetly detail the build in a separate thread once it’s all done.

That is one pretty engine... one day I'll do that for my Venetian R.

Thanks man! Aaron’s fabrication work on the exhaust manifold and his attention to detail with the engine build is incredible. He’s very talented and very easy to work with. Couldn’t be happier with how it’s coming together.

Definitely, you can tell just from the pictures how much attention to detail went into it!

I'm interested in reading that thread when it's done. I'd like to do something like that eventually on my R. Not any time soon, but eventually.
