Rust in peace thread

Post by trabitom99 » 30 Oct 2010 03:35 pm

Inspired by Speedy88's picture over in the "spotted" thread, I thought I'd start a "rust in peace" thread for rusty and abandoned V300s. Show us your pics!

Here's Speedy's pic, found over at Retro Rides:

5 years ago in France, Volvo weekend with friends to save parts on a rusty GLT... I took pictures of all the rusty points, very interesting...

Oh dear, Tom, it's sad to see your 360 GLi like that... Our mini meet in Bonn with our red cars is a great memory! Shame your car died, btw what was the problem?

Cheers

Here's the full thread on the subject, the very first pictures will tell you what the problem was :-)
http://www.volvo300mania.com/forum-uk/v ... =5&t=10749&

A friend of mine from the DAF scene is a great welder and has done some excellent work on my cars, but even he said it would be a better to call it a day.

I kept lots of spares, but nowhere near as much as you on those pics!

Cheers
