helloportland Good bye my darling, we had a fun ride this past 2 years. I really pray that whomever gets you from make a wish foundation loves you just as much as I have. RIP at 252k miles (Got the diagnosis- needs all of the hoses replaced again, a new radiator, and... my worst fear of all... a whole new tranny) #rip #goodbye #iloveyou #volvo #volvov70 #v70 #v70glt #1998volvov70 #volvolove #volvoforlife #movingon #volvostagram #loveforcars #myfirstcar #myfirstvolvo #heart 2y
  •   stu_baugh @helloportland your old Volvo looks awesome. It's a shame it has gone. I've had a few now. I've had a #2001 #S40 #T4 that went like the wind. I've had a #2007 #S60 #D5 which was lovely and I now have a #2008 #S40 #D5 (the pictures of the black car in the snow that I keep posting) which is lovely. Lovely cars. 2y
  •   helloportland @stu_baugh thank you :D she was a gorgeous girl while i had her. Oh wow I actually had no idea that volvo has newer diesels until I looked up D5. Learn something new every day! Haha :). I adore your s40, such a beauty. 2y
  •   stu_baugh @helloportland thank you, that's very kind of you. X. Yeah, the D5's they do are really good Diesel engines. They are good on economy but good performance too. X. 2y
  •   cub740 Sad but Say goodbye to a high maintenance modern Volvo 2y

helloportland Her final resting place. I just tried to move her into the driveway after getting stuck there last night.....no dice. Her transmission is completely shot for the second time in 8 months and this time is 100 times worse than before. She has lived a good long life and I am so lucky to have been there to care for her for almost 2 years of it. If anyone would like to bring her back to life and care for her as I have, we are located in portland. Just shoot me an offer. I love her so much and will miss her like a first born child. #restinpeace #cardeath #transmission #volvo #volvov70 #v70 #v70glt #blackbeauty #volvolove #volvo4life #volvoforlife #loveforcars #sadday #heartbroken #love #goodbye 2y

helloportland My christmas list this year. Jewelry is over rated #volvo #ipdusa #v70glt #volvov70 #volvoforlife #volvostagram 2y
  •   _laserblue @helloportland Thanks :) and yes. Black on black is one of those timeless combos that will always look sexy. I expect pictures of it! 2y
  •   helloportland @Laserbluelogan Oh yeah there will be many! :D then on goes the lowering springs, tint, black chrome 5 or 6 spoke rims and partial touch up paint job on some parts. Oh and in the mean time a new radiator and tie rods and I should probably should fix the cracked engine mount. She has to look and feel good for having 2.5k miles ;P 2y
  •   kilroy30 Gonna be Nice ;) look at my others v70R www.garaget.org/kilroy30 2y

helloportland My girl all clean and stuff :) #volvo #v70glt #1998 #black 2y
  •   helloportland @cub740 thanks!! 2y
  •   jn2k108 Nice. Very clean 2y
  •   helloportland @jn2k108 thanks I try bath every Friday and detail once every 3 weeks or so depending on her travels. Every 3 days a rim wash. 2y
  •   jn2k108 Sweet. I used to do that when I got my c30. Currently I'm too busy with movin in the new place. I'll get back o. Track soon enough 2y
  •   helloportland @jn2k108 it happens ^,^ at least your c30 isn't black haha. 2y
  •   helloportland @jn2k108 so you can pull off not washing it for a few weeks or just going through a car wash* 2y
  •   jn2k108 I rather hand wash pun intended hahaha. I need to clay, seal and wax. I used to wash and wax every week because I would see how dirty it was lol. 2y
  •   helloportland @jn2k108 haha me too since my car hasn't been well taken care of in her past life I see every little swirl and discoloration. I stopped waxing and deswirling so often as I used to cause I realized how OCD I was being about it haha. 2y

helloportland Before middle and after of a #volvo #v70glt #frontspoiler #bumper #repair 2y
  •   keenan_carpender @Helloportland What paint did you use and how much $? 2y
  •   helloportland @keenan703 I used a flexible black bumper spray paint from napa auto, sandable and partial filling grey primer, and clear coat spray. All in all paint costed about 25 bucks. 40 with sand paper. Only needed one can of each for that bottom half I did. Remember to sand a LOT before and wet sand after primer and clear coat. Prep is key. 2y
  •   helloportland @keenan703 oh and make sure it is glossy! 2y
  •   keenan_carpender @helloportland ok I need to do that.. My hood and front (and back ) bumpers have so much road rash/ scrapes I need to do something. I also want a widow tint and to get it debadged. I like your idea of the smoked out tail lights. One thing that I really want to do is put 850R rims on it, black v70 with those rims look awesome in my head. But first, I need to fix this head gasket issue. It overheats if its about 60 degrees or so after 20 minutes of driving. Cannot find out why. Volvo specialist in Denver spent 2 days looking at it. Nothing. I do need a Pcv though. Not sure if that would contribute to over heating. But I was thinking of selling my car until I saw your page because with 135k, this car isn't even half way done with its life. Seeing yours in such good condition motivates me to work through these issues and in the end have an amazing car. Thanks for the inspiration! 2y
  •   keenan_carpender ^ @helloportland sorry, that was a small book 2y
  •   helloportland @keenan703 I wouldn't do spray paint on any thing that is metal because it won't stick to it and will look cheap. I personally am just working on my bumpers until I can afford a spray gun or two and find a good area to work on it. Wow 135k is amazingly low and actually worth a lot if you get all issues fixed. What model is it? The PVC could very well be the issue but if that fails to help you could post on matthewsvolvosite.com about what is going on I am sure people would be more than happy to help you figure out what's going on. Looots of patience, Volvos are unique and tough to figure out but well well worth it. Glad to be an inspiration and thank you!! :) #Volvoforlife 2y
  •   keenan_carpender Black 1998 v70 GLT fwd winter package, sunroof, no third seat. 135k. Bought it in July for $1900- the guy I bought it from originally wanted $3000 but I bargained a bit and yes, #volvoforlife 2y
  •   helloportland @Keenan703 Ah schweet! Same exact as mine minus third seat! Absolutely adore this car. I got mine for $2k with 240k so man you got a great deal on that one. Good job and good luck!! 2y
