Up for auction is our beloved 1990 Volvo 240 DL station wagon. It has my personal favorite color combo black exterior / dark charcoal cloth interior.
The exterior looks great from 10 feet away. Upon closer inspection you'll notice the less than stellar paint job. On the top you can see where the old topcoat was peeling underneath the new paint. There is orange peel throughout. Additionally, there has been some less than adequate touch up work done on top of the drivers door and the rear passenger door from where the paint was cracking. The body is as clean as you will find any where. No dents or dings anywhere. She's a southern girl, so there is no rust as well. All the trim is in great shape except for the front passenger wheel trim has some damage. The 2 front tires are in good condition, the rear 2, not so much. It has the factory donut spare in excellent condition.
The interior has the standard cracks in the dash, which have been covered with black gorilla tape. The drivers side map holder is partially broken, and also secured with black gorilla tape. The drivers seat is a bit warped and shows some wear, but very presentable. The passenger seat, back seat, carpet, headliner, and cargo area are all in excellent condition. All the power windows work as they should. The clock, speedometer, odometer/trip all work. The blower motor makes a whining sound on high. The heat will burn you out of the car. The heated seats used to work, but don't seem to now, could be a fuse or.....? The a/c blows semi cool sometimes. It was checked out and the compressor and everything tested fine. I've had 3 240's and not one of them has cooled to my liking. A freon charge might help a little, but I wouldn't expect miracles. All the lights, wipers, etc work as they should. .
At just under 265.000K, she is just reaching her prime. The engine starts on the first try every time, even after sitting a few weeks, and purrs like a kitten. The transmission shifts smooth and functions as it should. The front shocks are shot, and the back ones are not much better. It also needs a right tie rod end and a front end alignment.
New shocks and 2 new tires and I wouldn't hesitate to head across country in this car. These are one of the all time greats when it comes to dependability, and to find one this clean is getting much harder to do.

All new Volvo FH16 750
The Volvo FH16 is now available with 750 hp and 3550 Nm to handle the heaviest and most demanding transport assignments. It will reach the market just in time to celebrate the 16-litre engine's 25th anniversary. 1987 saw the introduction of the Volvo F16 with Volvo's first-ever 16-litre engine, producing 470 hp. Since then, market needs have driven the development towards increasingly powerful trucks.
Car Tour: My 1998 Volvo S70
This is a short tour of my 1998 Volvo S70 sedan, which I purchased in December of 2011 for 2500$. It has been a wonderful car to me. Sorry for the shaky video, I had to use my iPhone 4S video camera instead of my camcorder since the battery will not hold a charge. Since the car was purchased, I have done a lot of work on the car. I bought a new left rocker panel and bumper cover that needed to be replaced due to damage caused by the previous owner. I am the 2nd owner of the vehicle. I will post a list of the specs of this car below. The vehicle has 153,719 miles. I bought it with about 151,000 miles on the car. They are mostly highway miles. Volvos are safe and long lasting, reliable cars that last a very, very long time if well taken care of. I didn't get a good Exhaust video because I don't want my brand new iPhone sitting on my concrete driveway. I have babied and taken very good care of the car, and may do a repaint of the car because the bumper cover and rocker panel I bought (which I have not put on the car yet) need to be repainted silver. I have also done a lot of upgrades mechanically to the car. I am planning on selling it soon, I love the car but I would like to make a profit and find something nicer. This would make a wonderful first car or secondary vehicle. I think it's great for being 14 years old. No tears in the seats. This seems to be common (seat tears) in older Volvos. Mine was the only one in the area without seat tears.
Specs that weren't at the beginning...
4 wheel disc brakes, driver and passenger airbags, front and rear side airbags. AC, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, heated mirrors, headlight washers (common on European cars), heated leather seats (black, can be a pain in the summertime cause it gets HOT) CD player (single disk), AM/FM radio, premium sound (I think), ABS brakes, traction control, dual climate control, automatic transmission, tilt wheel, keyless entry, fog lights, daytime running lights, stability control, defrost, cruise control. I think that's everything that wasn't covered at the beginning of the video.
The upgrades I've done include-
new CV joints, new ABS module, new tires, new brakes and rotors, new turn signal light, all fluids changed and routine maintenance done on time, new floor mats, new left side rocker panel, new front bumper cover, repainted, new power antenna motor, and a lot more. I also just remembered I forgot to video me popping the hood so you could see the clean engine compartment and the 2.4L 20 valve 5 cylinder engine. Sorry about that.
I'd be looking to get anywhere from 4,000-5,000$ for the car. Keep in mind these cars will run several hundred thousand more miles if well taken care of. 95% highway miles, not nearly as hard on a car as city stop-and-go traffic is.
Volvo 240 diesel D24 cold start @ winter
http://www.volvotips.com is the ultimate Volvo website which will contain all info about classic Volvo's! We're still developing the website so stay tuned for extra info about your favorite Volvo car.
The car I'm starting above is my own Volvo 244 GL D6 with BW55 automatic gearbox, made in October 1979 (ModelYear 1980). The video is shot on January 25 2012 and at that moment it was about 3 degrees Celcius. I replaced the glow plugs by NGK-versions, something I shouldn't have done because the original Bosch-plugs are getting much hotter! In the winter it can take several starting attempts before the D24 enging is running right from the start.
The D24 6-cilinder diesel engine is made by Volkswagen. The acceleration from 0 to 100kph took about 18 seconds (slow diesel and slow automatic gearbox) but driving it in daily traffic the car performs pretty good, mainly because most people are slow shifters with their manual gearboxes in Dutch traffic. After the acceleration-test I started to cruise around. :)

Volvo 240, turbo and twin supercharged (8 valve) KMS
KMS in The Netherlands built this, using their own engine management system. The car now runs a different turbo, a different engine (with 16 valves) and puts out in excess of 1000bhp....
This video is with only 600 bhp
Fun in a car which you wouldn't expect to reach 100 Km/h :)
Automotive Masking Tips - How To Tape a Car - How To Mask a Car for Painting (hot topic!)
Automotive Masking Tips -- How To Tape a Car -- How To Mask a Car (Hot Topic!) Blog: http://www.learnautobodyandpaint.com/blog/automotive-masking-tips-how-to-tape-a-car-masking-a-car-hot-topic/
Automotive masking made simple.
In this short video above we'll show you a sample (of what you get in our VIP course) masking strategies and short cuts that are used in the automotive body repair industry.
When it comes to paint jobs and masking you have a few choices and it all depends on your end goal. What kind of job are you looking to complete for you or your customer? and if performing a job for a customer, what are you charging?
Masking is a very important step in the process of painting a car. You basically have 2 options.
1. You can leave most of the parts on the car such as the headlights, taillights, windows, mirrors and mask them up like most body shops do if they're working on a averaged priced paint job or frankly too lazy or don't care to take the parts out.
In this business you really get what you pay for and on the flip side to that coin you deliver what your customer wants.
In this business there are many different type of guys to please... some want the MACCO job, some want a better job and others what the best they can get. Those who want the best pay for it.
2. Your second option is: If you're doing a complete restoration, or just want to do a good job... you can go all out and completely strip the car so you have little or no masking to deal with. This is the way to do it if you want a PRO finish paint job. You'll also be able to charge top dollar to complete these kinds of jobs for customers.
You can learn how to do all of this yourself and save a TON of money while learning an Awesome skill-set!
Within our VIP Membership Club we show you all ways to complete a job.
We show you the fast ways, the down and dirty and the real truth on how to get things done with the results that you're looking for.

1988 Volvo 240 DL
Bought this car about six weeks ago. The video I put together last week was some repairs I had to do on the car, but this is just a walkaround showing the car itself.
1975 Volvo 244DL 45 Mp/h NHTSA Frontal Impact
Yes, this test is at 45 Mp/h. (72.60 Km/h)
Left Femur 4853-9519
Right Femur 3149-4217
The body holds up relatively well, but the dummies make contact with hard surfaces.
