Volvo is taking a significant minority share in parent Geely’s Lynk & CO brand. I’m only pointing this out because it is all just a step so that Geely can eventually have Volvo become the Volvo Group and lead Lotus, Lynk, Polestar, Volvo Cars, and Volvo Trucks.

The twin has had a much harder life, and has graciously given its 2 good tires with wheels for a very reasonable sum of $30.

The only update is that the right front caliper must’ve seized to some degree, by the time he was nearly at the garage, the tow truck driver noticed it was smoking. He pulled over, and saw that the brake rotor was glowing orange.....luckily, a friendly couple was in their yard and gave him their hose to use to cool it…
Waiting for the tow truck to take it to the shed/garage I’m renting. Bonus International.
Have (what might be ) a 265.
A brisk one
