Hello All, Noob Introduction (lots Of Pics)

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Shawn, and I am a Volvo addict. :D

I have been over on Turbobricks for a couple of months, but have found my way over here. I own a 91 744ti, and before that was an 87 744ti, but that doesn't mean I hate FWD Volvos. I love all Volvos! The 87 was bone stock except for the stereo I installed. I purchased the 91 with mods already in it, it was a 94 engine, swaybars, sport springs, 2.5" IPD stainless steel cat-back exhaust, plus some other little things. I would like to add a few other goodies to it, but need to wait on the cash flow (as always) after paying off some bills.

Anyways, just thought I would take a moment, say hi, and post some pics.

No slushboxes for me! They both had the famous 4spd+OD M46!

I will be at the meet with bells on... well, I'll probably not wear the bells. Check the thread, I posted a couple of times. I joined VS after Rodrigo posted the meet info over on TB.

Thanks for the welcome. I mostly like to lurk. In the corner. Looking at all the pretty pictures. :D

um, can I have your front, side, and rear skirts off the SE then? :P And my car needs a little TLC to be in total "show condition". It is a 91, but has a 90 front end (but still 91 hood), so I need to fix that.

Hey! That's my wife you're talking about! :josh: Get your own redhead! :lol: j/k, you must also have a weakness for the redheads.

I like the red 744 more. It's f'n sweet.

I no longer have that one. :( I miss it, but it needed a lot of TLC. I sold it to another turbobricks member who is taking good care of it. The 91 doesn't look as nice, but it sounds better, and my butt dyno says its better. :D
