Just came back from 2 weeks in Dubrovnik (300 miles away). The car is now fine after some axle problems prior to the trip, and with fresh wheel rings installed it’s smooth on the highway. Took it up to over 100mph and it handled it no sweat.

I’ve got some bigger, and some smaller bits for it, interior and trim pieces, did a service for fresh fluids, etc. I think I’m coming close to a point where I’ll be happy with it for a while without touching anything.

Oh, i also bought a new engine for it (Volvos 2.4 NA 20 valve 5cyl). Mine is a 10 valve. But the engine will have to wait for some time to get put in. I really want to shove it into something cool like a volvo 240 or something else but the financial aspect of doing that here is crazy. It could take years for all the government testing and verification documents to go through, so engine swaps aren’t common here. We’ll see.
