only problem, is my stupid car needed two rad belts, i didnt realise that, who the hell would think in needed two of them? and why would it need two of them? they go to the same place it's just weird.
and discovered i need at least a new vacum hose, and i have a fuel injector that just isnt working at all.

and they say volvo's never die.

Depends on the Volvo. Ford's been churning out some okay Volvos, at least as far as safety goes, but that's pretty much it. They dropped the 2.5L I5 turbo into Volvo's hands though, but that's all they've really done for the company.

Belts will always go bad, no matter what car. They simply wear over time and through use.

What year/model btw?

that blows, two seperate drunks have crashed into mine (ahem) in bar parking lots, one destroyed the front blinker, the other dented the rear wheel well.

everyone thinks i just did it myself, but it's the first car i have not personally wrecked.

this guy hit the car so hard it was a third of the way into another parking spot where it collided and totaled another car

his giant truck, smeared with gray paint on the bumper sat mostly undamaged not fifteen feet away.

and i bet he didn't even get thrown out of school like people do for OMG SMOKING POT!?!?

i really liked that car, granted it wasn't in great shape and could do 100 provided i was accelerating for 30 minutes and going down a hill, but it was like driving a little tank almost.

Joe

i'll find out when i join the next rally!

My parents used to own a 240 DL, must have weighed twice that of a normal car.

People swap BMW, Mercedes, and Jaguar V10s into those puppies all the time. I'd rather have a Volvo 240 than almost any car Volvo has sold to date, the only two exceptions being the S60R and P1800.

i know a guy who supercharged his 240

he put a sticker on it that's like the ferrari logo but it's a moose instead of a stallion\

I wish brand image weren't such a huge factor in car sales these days. I'd buy a modern one of these babies in a second.

Speaking of Eurotrash, sadly I think I'm gonna have to go e36 M3 for the next car. I just don't want to deal with the repair costs of owning a rotary (FD RX7), or the image associated with Supra drivers, and the other option of the 1999 Mustang Cobra is just too sunburnt arm, mullet-wearing, chew spittin', Confederate-flag-waivin' fer me.

Joe

repair costs of rotarys are very expensive but there giving away 10 year free service plans latley so maby that would ballance out in time.

and everything you said about mustangs is true i know this 40 yo broad who drives one and you describer her perfectly

I remember all the RX8 guys talking about how the Renesis is so much more reliable than previous rotaries, and now they're starting to blow at 80k, just like every rotary before that. "It's more reliable in theory!" Yeah stfu with that moving parts bullshit, the apex seals go and you're fucked guys.

Rotary engines, good riddance.

But they do have style points though.

Joe
05-26-2009, 11:30 PM
^ yeah but really most engines, any engines blow because stupid little fanboys never change the oil and drag race all day long and put fucking stupid aftermarket bullshit 'preformance' parts on them, witch do nothing more than decrease the life of the engine, by the amount of additional horsepower there supposed to supply.

rotary engines, even more than reg engines require an extra bit of care and these d- dags just coult not be bothered

Well Reliability on a modified car depends on the tune and how durable the stock engine is. Not all blocks are built equal.

I had an `87 740 Turbo. I loved that little tank. It had a manual sunroof!

And I was in that car when I got into my accident. Had I been in my CURRENT car, I easily would've flipped over... but volvos are such substantial cars, it just spun a lot.

Then I drove it for another 6 months. Every time I hit a bump, the trunk popped open. No one could sit in the back passenger-side seat because you'd smell burning rubber. And then it got broken into, so I kicked out all the rear tail lights in anger.

It was a good little car.
