      Isn't this the one that the Taurus forum collectively bought and destroyed because they thought it was such an embarrassment?

      Yeah that's the thing, it's ugly as hell. This car will never be perfect, but I'd like to have it one color instead of five. I just can't seem to decide what color I ought to paint it!
    3. My new-ish $800 turbocharged Swedish wagon

      So about a month ago I got into a minor accident in my beloved 1993 940 wagon (non-turbo, 313k miles) that crunched the hood and bent the radiator support back far enough that the rad and e-fan went...

      European. Turbodiesel. Wagon. Lifted. (Not manual though, too bad).

      Yours for $1800 obo apparently:...

      Yeah it's confusing. In 1991 and 1992 you could buy both the 740 and 940 haha. The bodies of the later 700s are essentially identical to the 900s (sedans have some obvious differences). The interior...

      I'd say the latest Volvo 850/940/960 you can find in the best condition is your safest bet. They are say nicer to drive than the 240's and they don't rust like them either. Cloth interiors and...

      I've probably spent 800 days on tour in cheap vans. First of all, forget about school buses or ambulances or whatever; the dual rear axle is a pain and the buses at least are usually geared for 55mph...

      I love this style of car modification for the most part, but why the horrendous wheels on 98% of these?

      1993 Volvo 940:
      - The A/C has no charge and hasn't for four years. I won't do anything about it because I'm 90% sure it's a leaking evaporator. That is not a pleasant job on the 940.
      - Neither of...

      So first of all, those are NCV3 vans that have the V6. The earlier T1N vans had the 5-cylinder. I have probably 100-150k miles of seat time in various '03-'06 Sprinters and I think they're great....

      Don't get great mileage? Our 10 year old Sprinters average 20-22 mpg loaded while doing 70-75 on the highway with some in-town driving. Find me an Econoline or Express that could have boasted the...

      That's a bandwagon. Meaning it's being driven by a professional driver which is laughable/disappointing.

      DAMN IT. I've wanted one for years. This is the only I've ever seen for sale. I've only seen two in real life. What an awesome car. A turbo, rwd, Scirocco-esque sports coupe. I love it.

      I don't...

      So wait, your Mustang has a carbed 302 and needs to pass as an EFI 4-cylinder?

      I think you need to enlist the help of a carb expert. You're running rich and it sounds like you're not that sure of...

      I doubt any of those would fit a rwd Volvo without spacers.

      Volvo Multi-X is basically it that's "easily" available. But adaptors have the added benefit of spacing the rears out a bit which, on a 240, is always nice.

      Someone have a ballpark operation and maintenance cost for a single MRAP? I'm willing to bet it's PRICY.

      My '79 Rabbit diesel had manual brakes and steering. By '79 manual brakes were probably an uncommon option I'd imagine.

      I should add that the two 16v Scirocco's I've owned didn't have it either. My '84 was a triple-white Wolfsburg Edition with every option except sunroof so I assume the MFA was a pricy option that...

      I don't have a picture but my 1984.5 Scirocco had a MFA cluster and cruise control. The MFA had a special wiper stalk that allowed you to scroll through clock, ambient temp, oil temp, speed, and mpg....
