    I got it as a weekend toy, but currently it is my daily: 1992 Volvo 940GL B230FB 531 block, n/a for now, m90 swap, re-welded underbody and resprayed. All original windows & body panels, lights, wheels etc. Is it fast? Hell no! :D

    All I can say is, I hope you guys got good discounts on these cars, I can't believe they still sometimes accidentally put the wheel on the wrong side.

    Had a local company rebuild the motor. It is now a high compression 400 pushing over 300hp.

    Bought it brand new in June this year. Not very quick but well appointed and OK to drive. Took it from Newcastle to Broken Hill then back along the Victorian border (around 3000km round trip) with some dirt road stuff in there as well. I'm happy with it.
