  1. Glad I’m not the only one that thinks this. There always seems a prolific number of broken VAGs in the classifieds. they might have been reliable once but they certainly aren’t nowadays.
  2. I’m yet to understand what all the fuss is about with VWs. Especially Transporters. All the ones I’ve driven have been drab and plasticky and just ergonomically kack. And all the ones I’ve worked on have been a swine by design and fucked by negligence because the owner thinks they’re reliable so they just leave the maintenance until another day. Never mind the state of the tyres, just hang a piñata from your 200k mile diesel Bora’s rear view mirror and advertise it for £2k. #dubz4ever
  3. Only had a plain estate diet of 3 x 2.3 940 turbos, all manuals. My current one:
  4. Seems like a lot of car for £1300 300hp Saab 9-5
  5. Looks properly Scandi-noir that does, and a body in the boot would explain the ride height 🙂
  6. Got to be a scam, surely? £1000 AX GT
  7. I never understand what “ran when parked up” means. Surely by definition any car needs to run to be able to park it?
  8. It was a rather specific £888 last night, same seller. “£15k spent on it in the last few years…..”
  9. That’s brilliant, so glad this is back on the road after all your hard work and determination. It’ll be a big surprise for your dad on Christmas Day too
  10. Excessive corrosion? Someones clearly pissed in his cornflakes.
  11. Oh this is looking wonderful, fingers crossed for you that Monday goes well. You deserve it!!
  12. Love this thread, and the end is in sight now. So morale boosting watching this come together
  13. Draco’s are nice too, I had them on my old 1991 HPT. I’ve never seen them on later 940s like our R reg ones though.
  14. Glad to hear it’s growing on you @brownnova Seeing yours makes me want some OEM alloys for mine. Volvo made some wonderfully tasteful wheels around this era. Hydras my favourites, but they’re hens teeth.
  15. Kinda want another one. Maybe not that desperate yet though
  16. Arches look great going by the picture
  17. Glad I'm not the only one here who dislikes BMWs. I find them all Ultimate obnoxious, clinical and soulless Driving Machines, and I'm afraid I can't think of a single one I really like. Not into Vauxhalls either. Can't think of a Vauxhall that I'd rather have over the rival Ford. But I do like a Lotus Carlton.
  18. That shot could be in the AS 2022 calendar
  19. Nice buy @brownnova!! I’ve got a manual R reg 2.3 turbo as my run around (my third 940 turbo), and I love it. Fantastically capable cars, the last proper Volvo in my opinion: still RWD and uniquely boxy like the 240 but with ABS and airbags, easy to work on, turbocharged so can press on, fairly well rust proofed from factory, and easy parts availability.
