    These young guys rescuing a beautiful Volvo instead of buying it to destroy by "blowing the engine" or "smash it to a wall" ... There are millions of videos destroing old cars and i think that people are mental sick and when they grow old i wish they have the same treatment and destiny. This vídeo is the opposite. A group of friends working together to realize something good... My sincere congratulations. From Portugal.

    Hello Memphis! Quick tip, I saw recently you bought some tires for the BMW. What I saw worried me, you bought Apollo tires, which are not a really ok brand. I would definitely go for the budged tires from Michelin ( Tigar, Riken) , Kumho, Firestone and so on. Please keep that in mind for the next set of tires you buying.

    As a Dutch Volvo 240 Estate owner I stumbled upon your channel. I love to work on my car as well and I like your channel so much that in the last couple of weeks I watched every video! From your Nurburgring adventures, to picking up the V8 Beamer in Germany, from getting the subframe done on the E28 to building the dream workshop with your dad. Love your humor, your passion for working on cars, and the way you bring everything into view, the successes, but the fuckups as well. Keep up the good work, and keep those vids coming!

    Tip: als je de auto probeert te starten, breekt waarschijnlijk de distributieriem. Als deze riem breekt krijg je kromme kleppen en als je een beetje meer pech hebt breekt de nokkenas. Een bekend kwaaltje bij deze VW motoren na lang stilstaan. Mar verder, véél succes.

    Een reactie uit het West-Vlaamse Gistel. Het is fijn om te zien hoe drie jonge gasten zich interesseren in een oude Volvo. In 2018 kocht ik ook een 245 , gebouwd als "lichte vracht", met enkel twee zitplaatsen. De motor is ook een diesel, zes in lijn. Denk er aan om tijdig de distributie riemen - het zijn er twee - te vervangen. Mijn verhaal is een beetje gelijklopend, want de mijn 245 stond ook een tiental jaren onder de bomen... Ik zie uit naar een volgende video. Do.

    I'd pull the carpets out - shampoo them with a wet vac and make sure the sound deadening or insulation is dry and remove any mould growing. Also - if there is still a mouldy smell - get an ozone generator. It will react with and kill all the mould, fungus and bacteria in the car making it smell. Also pull the seats out and pressure wash and shampoo them as well. It's likely been wet for some time - you probably have a few of the window seals, the sunroof and the hole in the roof that have been leaking and having water sit in the floor.

    I had the very same interior - trim, seats, colour and material - on my '86 240GL. In my opinion, those seats and the covering are the best that Volvo ever produced. The BASF Glasurit paint used on this vehicle is about the best paint out there. Because of the high quality products that Volvo used on this vehicle it is no surprise that Greta cleaned up as well as she did! I'm really looking forward to seeing your restoration go forward on this beautiful 240GL Diesel.

    I‘m curious how it’s going on. I bought the same Volvo 240 (but not with diesel) in the same colorway. Please put out the carpet and take a look for rust. The floor unit and the door sills are often in bad condition. Also the rear wheel housings should be checked, if there are rust issues into the direction of the back Seat. I hope to see much more about this project! Keep it going :)
