I agreed to buy the Volvo for $1950 after some minor back-and-forth over the past week.

The brakes are questionable as are the tires, so here’s to hoping they last 160 more miles. IPD’s big sale ends tomorrow so I should have enough time to wash & polish it and figure out what other things need to be fixed.

My initial goal is $1000, which should buy new brake pads & tires, a new wiper motor, a service manual, and probably some suspension upgrades.


Plan is to have it road-ready by the end of the month for Radwood in December and rally school in February. My transfer fell through at the last minute, so I got time and lots of it in a low cost-of-living town.
