Found this sweet coupe, picked it up today<p>( no thats not me lol.. guy i bought it from)<br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j263/NateDogg42087/volvo.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>As far as plans, looking to do either turbo swap, or bolt a turbo on this motor.. runs great, probably better after i play with the timing.. it'll definitely get a lot of suspension work, clean it up a bit and maybe some newer volvo wheels. It's going to be a daily, so it wont get any major work done til i get my other car dialed in. My dad had a 79 242 GT way back, but sold it before i got my licence.. he had a lot of IPD suspension components, cam and other goodies, so i have some guidance when it comes to these cars.<p>While i have a thread open... could someone let me know how difficult it is to swap to the older round headlights? personally i think it looks better. any other advice would be great as well.<p>my other car<p><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j263/NateDogg42087/jetta8.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>
