      '73 145 in SoCal

      Anyone here in SoCal? I've got a '73 145 in Escondido, just north of San Diego.



      B20F, D-Jet. 4-speed w/OD. 210k miles. It's never been apart. I'm preparing to do a cross country road trip, out to Michigan and back, in it when the social distancing situation gets resolved.

      Haha. Nice! Your 142 looks pretty good.

      I'm looking for a set of old IPD sway bars for the Bad Banana. Anybody have any for sale?

      If no one has them here you might try TurboBricks.

      Otherwise, you can get them new from VP:

      When are you looking to come through Michigan? Myself and another individual are in the Ann Arbor area. PM me if you'll be passing through. I could also put you in touch with the Great Lakes Volvo Club. The Gilmore museum near Kalamazoo is also very cool.

      The present timeline is unclear to say the least. Our plan had been to depart SoCal back on 21 March, arriving back in the homeland around 1 April. Then turning around westward sometime near 15 April. The present outlook is for departure from SoCal sometime after Labor Day with return to SoCal by around Halloween. Obviously that is speculative at best currently.

      We won't be passing thru Ann Arbor per se on the trip. However one of my nieces lives in Plymouth so it is highly likely that we'll visit the area. I'll most definitely reach out when we know more.

      That would be cool. We've had multiple Volvos over the years. Our present family daily driver is a Gothenburg delivered '16 V60. And the Geely connection is also interesting as we also own some Lotus.

      I'm originally from Benton Harbor and lived in Kalamazoo for a few years. I still have family in both locations. So we'll most definitely be there. We always stop in to both the Gilmore and AirZoo museums when we visit.
