Nürburgring Nordschleife in a Volvo 760 Turbo
Me driving a lap (with 3 passengers) on the Nordschleife during the Touristenfahrten when we were there for the EU6.0 turbobricks meet (31.07.2011). Great fun! Car: Volvo 760 (MY 1982) with B204GT engine (1990 - 16 valve turbo) M90 E85 Fuel Garrett T3 (.63 exh. and 60 trim compressor) Bilstein B6 (front) Koni Yellow (rear) 3' Exhaust
Volvo 262 C - the Bertone chimney
I changed the coolant fluid from tap water to something more anti-freezing stuff and I warmed up the engine a bit, but I didn't want to bother the neighbour with the smoke... :-)
Volvo 760 TD snowy cold start
Rare snowfall and cold winter temps in Seattle, video of getting my 1983 Volvo 760 GLE turbodiesel started and dug out. Ambient temperature was roughly 27F, car had sat overnight. How a healthy D24T should start when engine mechanicals, fuel system, glow system, and charging/starting systems are all in proper order. I would have lifted the hood, but didn't want to move all the snow... Apologies for the car's appearance, it is a project that has been sorted mechanically but not yet cosmetically.
