Justin, I could get you a dash and other RHD stuff, I know a reliable and honest Volvo guy in England.

Once the guy tells you he's fine with that, shoot me a PM and I'll pull prices, etc... FYI, it wouldn't be too easy to import, but not impossible.

It's easy.

Buy the car.

Fly to England.

Take the engine out.

Ship the engine in one box.

Ship the car in another box.

Reassemble in the states.

You've now have the RaReSt vOlVo EvAr, V70r Cassi RHD kit car. :)

Piece of cake.

But why raise your costs ? There are ways to import it as-is just ask Chuck or Juan, both know some of the loopholes.

GD Dougl-ASS County Sheriff's dept! I was taking my daughter to her dance school this afternoon, minding every traffic law, and merging onto the main road going through town. Before I can merge, I blow an IC hose ($(@)%{:content:}amp;!@#(*{:content:}amp;!@*(#$@#!!!!) and realize that I don't have enough power to merge. So, I hit the hazards and roll on through the end of the merge section, which turns into an 'only' lane... trying to be safe. Boom... Sheriff's squad-car is on my butt before I can even blink, lights flashing. I'm thinking, "Wow, how nice... he realized that I was having some kind of mechanical issue and is here to help."

So, I make a turn onto the next street (which this 'only' lane is for) and pull over safely... pop the hood and get out. Officer gets out and I say, "Oh great thanks for helping me out, my car is stalling on me." Deputy Dawg has his hand on his piece and says, 'Get back in the car... I'm not in the mood to get shot at today." WTF??? Me in my DISNEYLAND SWEATSHIRT, looking so menacing... So of course I comply. Far be it from me to invite this guy to work out whatever issue he's having today, on me. However I did mention to him that I was "having a mechanical problem and that's why I didn't merge. Possibly he could assist me." He ignores this, blinks and...

He has me give him my lic, reg and insurance card... and then goes back to his squad. For no joke, 13minutes. Maybe he was playing WOW or something back there or watching beastiality porn videos, I don't know. He comes back and says that he's going to sight me for an expired insurance card (happens that it expired YESTERDAY, and I didn't grab the new one off the desk). Mandatory court appearance. What?

I say, "Well uhh, thank you for that. Did you not hear me that I said that I was having a mechanical issue?" He says, "Well if that was true, why did you roll through that merge lane, then blow the entrance to the only lane?" "Did you see that I had my hazards on, sir?" I asked. "Yes, I don't really care why you had your hazards on... have a nice day."

And he leaves me, technically disabled on the side of the road! So here I am, court date for BS, loose IC hose (and lacking the 11mm wrench to fix it...) and Mr. Serve and Protect drives off! I had to limp the car to the dance studio, and then limp the car home, keeping the revs up so that it wouldn't stall out, SOB!!! Seriously tempted to write his supervisor a letter...

same thing happened to me a while back blew the top pipe where it connects to the turbo at 1130 pm on a 2 lane highway with zero street lights for 300 yards. I have flash light a screw driver and a rag. Also in the car are two buddies and my gf. So 4 18 year old kids on the side of the highway trying to finesse the top ic pipe back into a very hot turbo. Cop rolls up lights on and i got thank god he's gonna be able to help me, either call a tow truck or lend me the proper tools. Nope first thing he does is close the trunk to read my tag ask for my insurance and registration as im trying to carefully balance myself on the top of the very hot engine. At this point my knuckle slips and touches the turbo. I have no idea how hot those suckers get but i can tell you never get any part of you're body near those things. I yell a few profanities and try to walk off holding my hand, at which point i get shoved up against my car and patted down. After he gets my registration and insurance my dad pulls up and the officer runs all the info from my dad. After that he gets in his car and drives away only telling me he should cite me for what i happened to yell and not obeying and officers orders. State cops FTL, county cops are decent

Are you serious?? That's some bull shit right there...

I'm totally serious. I'm sure that I shouldn't have gotten out of the car but I was thinking that the deputy was there to help out. Ha, was I wrong! I know a lot of cops and I'll have to run this thing by them and see what they think.

shenanigans...that is all.

So my mom asked me to take a look at her 01 Camry because apparently the engine was sounding much louder than usual. So i get out there fire it up and immediately notice what she must of, I also start to smell something like gasoline. I see a whiff of smoke coming from under the car and immediately think, oh shes got a little hole or something in the exhaust piping....Nope! It seems that around/after the cat converter the pipe must of snapped or pretty much come undone because the entire area underneath the engine was filled with smoke that was billowing out of the pipe. I kinda wish all car problems were as simple as that to diagnose.
