What a cool car.
I think it deserves its own thread in the general section. :mrgreen:

@ Trabitom

Now I remember too; we've even talked :mrgreen:

Since the Ledenvergadering al lot of work has been done (paint, bumper, wheels, welding etc.), but she isn't finished yet... and she won't be until march/may. Summer 2011 she should be finished, though.
But she really doesn't have ONE SINGLE SPOT of rust anymore!!

I'll open a new thread when she's back (before 31st december, I hope).

On another thread titled '300 total mileage' I posted my 1988 360GLT saloon mileage of 16000 and had several pleasing requests for some pictures so here are a few.
I've owned the car from new but not used it for everyday travel until recently and now I use it for daily transport and just love it. It is original. I wouldn't claim it to be the best example because I have seen many really immaculate looking 300 pictures posted on this forum. Also quite a few similarly low mileage cars but is mine the only 'own owner' 300 still around? Quite possible, however thanks again to those who showed such interest in my 360.

A GLT saloon is more interesting still, there aren't too many of those! The UK Volvo Owners Club would probably know if there are other "one owner" 300s around with such a low mileage ...

In case you ever wish to sell, keep any bills or documentation you have for the car, it makes them more "desirable" :-)

Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

My homemade bike rack. Took this on my phone after a 15hr, 1000+kms drive after christmas.

It worked a treat. Was rock solid the whole way. I had to spend a couple of hours picking all the locusts off the frames though
