Whoo! This is our annual event where I set up a PayPal page and we all shower the MVS Moderators with money.

If that conjures a mental image of a strip club for you, well, I can't say jack about it because it did for me too.


Generally we end up with $1-2k for these guys, and then divide it between them and they buy tools, parts, a well-deserved 6-pack of their favorite beer, or they use the money to help other Volvo owners (true story).

If you want to send me a check because you don't use or trust PayPal, that's fine (and I understand). I'll have all the details tomorrow.

Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.
