I was talking to Ford420 and another friend of mine and we're going to be heading down to The Ring Easter Sunday (April 12th). We (and the boys I'm running down with) plan on reaching the site around 12:30 to 1pm. I'd really enjoy meeting some other Volvo people if any of you all can make it. Hopefully the weather holds up.. <p>Cheers!

Just a reminder and a Bump.. seems like some of my local peeps are dropping out, but I still plan on showing up. Weather looks like it could be nice.. so here's to that.

My car had a single exhaust right as i buyed it, but the bumper had this prepared and blind made hole on the left side. So i just buyed 2 new endpipes in 30cm and weld them on.<br>The AWD has a totally different exhaust system than the FWD because of the drive shaft. So on my car on the right side is the endmuffler and on the left side its the middlemuffler. Well i killed two birds with one stone by opening the left muffler, i have a nice double exhaust and cool sound. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
