I undertand all of that. It's just the issue of having to sell all of said stuff in less than a week that is the problem I am running into.

And if you hate shopping as much as I do, and you're as indecisive when it comes to new possessions as I am, the time spent picking out new stuff means I'd be sleeping on the floor in an empty apartment for a few months :lol: If you don't enjoy shopping, time spent finding new stuff is a loss IMO.

I'd have a computer desk and a chair in the corner... hell maybe a sheet of wood on saw horses. The end.

And PODs start at around $2500 as they are meant more for larger houses and whatnot. Mileage is where the cost comes from, not size of the container. And I got an $1100 quote to ship my car. Back to square one.

I'm really considering just installing a tow hitch on my car and towing an enclosed trailer the whole way. That's really the best option anymore.

Can someone please explain to me what these are? And what era of Volvospeed they represent? They look like late 80's style glamour shot sites with cars featured rather than high school cheerleaders. Was this some old version of Garage or Blog?

Dans Car

Brian's Car

Leigh's 850

The Google search with all the rest of the 74 cars

Some old classics here:

Jens Ivarsson's 850 T-5R

Kai's C70

Che's C70

Colecchi's 850R

Interesting to see what parts of "the scene" have evolved and what parts have remained largely unchanged.

Whoaaa, throw back!

Way back in ye olde times of VS, on the home page there used to be a a sidebar with links leading to the forums, DIYs, etc. One of them sorta was like a "members' cars/featured car/galleries" section.

No clue, but the formatting looks like VS in the initial stage. Ask Chuck.

Back off-topic and re-igniting the tattoo debate.

Mike would never hire those guys.

The question is whether they would hire Mike?

Did you look into a uhaul w/ a car trailer like Matt suggested?

I did and it was going to come out to about $1700 total for the distance in driving, and that isn't even factoring in fuel yet. I decided to have a hitch installed and rent an enclosed trailer. As ill be pulling my jetski with the Volvo in a month or so anyways this made the most sense.

I thought it was never recommended to tow with a turbo but I'm always surprised to see so many hitches installed on turbo Volvos. Be careful, take it easy while towing and good luck with the new job, home, well new almost everything!
