I'm going to livestream a visit to a Volvo indie shop

Post by matthew1 » Mon Jun 24, 2019 11:05 am

I'm going to Swedish Motors in Boulder, Co in about an hour. I'll live stream it on my MVS YouTube channel, so gather the family, microwave that popcorn, and settle in for a wild ride! :shock: :D 8)

They've got some old, free parts they're cleaning out, and they invited me to pick through the pile.

I'll update this thread with a more exact timeline.
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.

Keep your eyes peeled for the elusive heated rear third seat, it was quite popular with CO deliveries

So I used Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/matthewsvolvo/

I'm back with a bunch of parts which I'll give out to members. I'll make a dedicated topic for that.

I'll catalog all the stuff, so you'll know what I have when I post it.

ah HA, that's what the famous Matthew looks like!

I grew up around Denver and Boulder - I always remember Boulder as an Alfa Romeo town.
