Thanks

Might pop along in my Amazon.

ITSv40 Jan 11th, 2018 22:54

I might be interested. Does anyone know who is organising it and how to book?

Aubergine S70 Jan 12th, 2018 16:06

Usually a very good turn out at Beaulieu and getting a good following, 140 tickets sold before and itís a great venue.

Aubergine S70 Jan 12th, 2018 20:45

Would like to see a pre facelift 740 turbo as I havenít seen one since 2008 when I sold mine for gutting £250, and wouldnít mind another. Might get some inspiration.

I'm not on Facebook, but noticed on your events page the visit to Meguires on 24 Feb. Are there any spare places? it is only 10 miles from me and would be a good day out. I thoroughly enjoyed the Ace Cafť last spring.

Iíll send a pm

Your mate is very lucky to have one as they're now rare since I sold mine, especially manual, which is the one I had and want. Just a question Is the car a saloon or estate as mine was a saloon.
Thanks

Aubergine S70 Jan 14th, 2018 00:24

Apologies it's obviously a saloon at you quote 744, didn't read it properly.

This was my Turbo when I sold it close to 10 years ago, but as you can tell it was sat for 5 years and oil was being draged through the intercooler and back into the engine as was like a red arrow. But I suspect the car was tampered with as 1 and 2 gears were pointless as it used to spin it wheels constantly, as this showed when I embarrassed a young lad in a new BMW 325i between traffic lights. Great car as I had it 11 years.

I probably come across as a huge idiot and I probably ask this to everybody who has one of these but would he consider selling it.
Thanks

Aubergine S70 Jan 14th, 2018 22:20

Thank you and I donít want to become petty but Iíve been wanting one for a few months but have been unsuccessful in finding the right one.
Thanks

Worked ok for me. Just clicled on the link and it took me straight there. Try this instead https://www.facebook.com/groups/volv...hmetal/events/
If this does not work it maybe because it is a closed group and you need to join it to see the posts

Swedish Metal Show at Cosford 8/04/2018
 
Hi
Can anyone tell me how i can book in for this show, i am quite new to showing and as i live fairly close to Cosford thought in might be time to show our old girl
(94 Volvo 940 Wentworth estate) to some of the other Volvo members.

Any help would be good, as i don't use facebook.

Regards

Rob

Foggys940 Feb 19th, 2018 00:20

I might pop along to this in either my 940 or the new 740 turbo if I can get it ready and mot'd.

tt82 Apr 6th, 2018 11:34

Anybody still going to this event?

skippyfox Apr 6th, 2018 12:55

I'm popping along as the museum is worth having a look round, especially if the weather turns a bit nasty.
