Default Attacked in Volvo Breakers Yard !!

In my quest for a steering angle sensor on Wednesday 13th March I was cornered by another Volvo owner and asked (TOLD!!)

You are going to the Guiness World Record...ARN'T YOU.

Er!! YES, but can't quite put my finger on the date or location, love to be there, hopefully see you?

Reply...."It 'll be on some forum...ignorance is no excuse..see you there.

I am scared to go back to the yard unarmed.............does anyone have a clue?

Bruntingthorpe or Rockingham perhaps? March 31st likely?

Perhaps I need help with search engine.

Thanks.

Bruntingthorpe, 31/3/19 12noon to 2pm. Go on Volvo 600 on FB and you will get details of the forms to print off. Complete them and then hand them over when you get there. I believe there is another 1400 cars likely to be there. May be more! Enjoy your day!

He is a good chap - if a little eccentric. Had some good parts from him.

ITSv40.

I know what you mean, mad as a box of frogs but good parts and reasonable prices especially if you are prepared to bundle a few bits together. He normally tries to sell me car and happy to take mine for breaking!

Great guy.
