Well, I guess I have to watch out for all those people that are heading back :o . They are coming straight at me as I am about half way there with my 850 at 105k.
My daughter on the other hand is getting closer and closer with her 04' V70 and 218k.

So happy to find this thread! I thought I was the only one who wanted to drive to the moon, and thought I hadn't made it yet, but I was using the average distance (238k). 98 V70XC, 234k and change, no longer AWD. Most of the way through a Stage 0, excepting doing the vacuum lines. I love me a good harvest moon! Thanks to all the folks on this forum that'll keep ol' nordic thunder running all the way back to Earth.

1996 855T. leather is fine, turbo is good. Replaced trans at 180K. Also replaced windshield, all front end components, mounts, rotors, fluids, reservoir, heater core, hoses, seals, belts. White ext. Grey int. 280K miles. I'm on my way back.
Radiator, alternator, starter, ignition, timing belt, water pump, new leather, double DIN, usb ports, IPD bars, mounts, inserts, slotted rotors, cleaned injectors, sound insulation, roof rack.
Although "harvest" and "waxing" moon are more appropriate, I'm going with "Sailor Moon"..The aftermarket one.


Life is like a box of chocol- make that an engine compartment. You never know where all the hoses go. Unless you read the diagram on the hood. When all else fails, follow the instructions. Do it right the 2nd time.
