Hi all! I've been watching this message board for a while now (as well as the site), and I finally decided to register. I figure the general discussion forum would be as good a place as any to say hi <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR>My family has had a Volvo since I was 6 (the 240 that I own and drive now), and I have to say that I've definately loved everything Volvo from a young age. Saab too, but that's a different story... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> I drive an '87 240 DL, my dad has a '00 V70, my mom drives a '93 Saab 900, and my younger brother has an '86 Plymouth Voyager (although it has a manual transmission, which is nothing to scoff at). Both of the Volvos (and the Saab) are basically stock, but all three of them were picked up through the overseas delivery system, which I have to say is an experience not to be missed! If you want to read more/see pictures of my Volvo, check the link in my sig (if I didn't screw the UBB code up <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">)<BR>I have to say that I am greatly impressed with the site (not to put down other sites); it has a nice design and great news/resources/etc... So this is just to say hi, I'm sure I'll be posting in the 200 forums as I've got a couple of minor problems that I'm having trouble figuring out <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>

Welcome to the site, FMonk! What a beautiful collection of pictures you have of your pristine '87 240! Holy cow -- what a CAR! It's to <I>DIE</I> for!!! I don't know about the rest of the folks here, but I'm thinking that this car is <I>lucky</I> to have such an attentive and appreciative owner! Good luck with all of your fixes and upgrades, and again, WELCOME!!! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR><P>

Thanks guys, I like it too <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> Till I got the car in 2001, it had been regularly maintained and cleaned, driven very conservatively and defensively, and stored in a garage when not in use. That's not to say that I don't take care of it, I just don't get to park in a garage <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"> Oh well, I guess it's the V70's turn now. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/tongue.gif"><P>
