    hi all,

    first time visitor on this group. i did some googling to find the
    answer, but to no avail.

    a friend mentioned a shop in new england that specialized in
    mechanically restoring older volvos but leaving all aesthetics -
    bodywork, etc. to be done by the buyer. he also thought that there are
    several places around the country that do this.

    it is a particularly attractive option to me as i'm about to go back
    into school and need a safe, reliable car and i could not care less
    what it looks like.

    anyone have a clue as to what he's referring?
    thanks in advance,
    Jack Butler

  2. Sorry, no, but you see restored and modded old Volvos on Ebay
    regularly.
    (The "world's fastest" 122, with a nitrous-burning V-8, just went up,
    but
    the reserve wasn't met). If there is a shop around here that does the
    above,
    I'm also interested.

  3. Your best bet is to find the "Volvo Guy" (or Gal) near you and search
    the papers/auctions for a beater. I know of amazing Volvo Guys in
    Alameda, Santa Cruz and Los Angeles, CA, so if you're out here, you're
    in luck! :)
