Wicked awesome weather

Monday, April 20th, 2009 Posted in Sky, Volvo 122s, Weekend Update | 1 Comment »

We had some great weather this weekend and we took full advantage of it.  After work on Friday I visited my friend Oscar to take a look at his car.  He ran low on coolant on the highway and it ...

Latest progress on the fleet

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009 Posted in Fiero, Saturn, Ulysses, Uncategorized, Volvo 122s | No Comments »

I've been steadily chipping away at work on the fleet.  I'll just cut to the chase! Subaru - We cleaned up the last of the Subie parts and those that we couldn't sell were scrapped (metal) or taken to the dump ...

Picking up some momentum

It's been nice not having any holidays, races, work trips, travelling, etc. to keep us occupied for the last month or so, Jessica and I have made some real progress on projects at the house.  Since our last update we've ...

The son of a bitch that wrecked my bike

Monday, September 1st, 2008 Posted in Bug, Soyburban, Ulysses, Volvo 122s, Weekend Update | No Comments »

My dog is the son of a bitch that wrecked my motorcycle.  Long story short, Kinzig has quite the appetite for turn signals.  He's shown to have an appetite for automotive parts in the past, but this is definitely the ...

More work on Green

Friday, August 29th, 2008 Posted in Volvo 122s | No Comments »

Today I drove over to IPD after work to pick up some parts for Blue and Green.  It is really convenient having *the* mail order Volvo parts place a 15 minute drive away.  I picked up three brake pressure switches ...

It’s hard out here when you’re sick

I have been meaning to update the blog with an update from the weekend, but I've been feeling really under the weather the last few days and have spent my "free time" zoning out and sleeping.  Last Friday I ducked ...

One small step at a time

I made a little more progress with the Volvos and the Bug today.  I started on the Bug, the last thing I have left before getting it back on the road is some work with the cooling system, mostly making ...

More fleet maintenance

We have been really distracted with the Olympics in full swing, watching them in HD with the DVR makes them WAY more enjoyable to watch than it has been in the past.  We still managed to get some work done ...

Another busy weekend

Monday, August 4th, 2008 Posted in Volvo 122s, Weekend Update | 1 Comment »

This weekend was yet another busy one for us.  On Friday we took the Saabaru down to Corvallis to pick up the Volvos.  AAA picked up the "spare" on a flatbed and I drove the other one on the backroads to ...

I walk the line…(by adding two more to the fleet)

Monday, July 28th, 2008 Posted in Car Stuff, Volvo 122s | No Comments »

Well, I stumbled on a deal I couldn't resist, I bought two more cars despite Jessica's gut feeling that it was a bad idea because she still doesn't have a new job and hers ends next week. http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/car/762896214.html Quote: 1967 Volvo 122 Station ...
