    Ill get some pictures up as soon as I can.
    doubt it ... the 2doors are worth silly money .... Why can't CXs be going up in value like crappy old range rovers and citroen DS's (I'd be a millionaire if they did ).

    not much thinking outside the box here;
    one would assume peugeot and volvo were at least cousins if not half siblings, no doubt volvo car club members (aussievlov's?) bemoan the cost/difficulty of repairs to old french cars ...

    onya Cam,

    was that you with that magna motor?

    On that finishing note, If your TV reception has been fixed, SBS have a number of excellent Scandinavian mini series.

    And if your technology allows you can see them online at SBS' website in the "on demand" section.

    Magna motor?

    Not me...

    Her grandfather donated his old 240 to here when she was a kid. She grew up out on Long Island New York and always loves the fact the volvo heater could fry your face off. She loves the look of them and brings more stuff home off the street that I buy french car parts. Most of our house is from the street thanks to her old 240.

    Ive put larger sway bars in this one from the 240 turbo and its made a considerable difference.

    Edge, Im not sure I follow whats your asking of Ange. Im sure she would love to come a write a few things on AF but shes busy making pottery on her wheel....that she got off the street....


    It is funny how it all adds up. I drove my Dads 264 for about an hour as a 14yr old on the highway to Melbourne GP once. He was tired and reckoned ' I would be sweet. Just put my shades on and eyes to the front '

    My old man is actually a Morgan nutcase. Has had them since he was 19 in 1960. Morgan motor companies first car was powered by a Peugeot motorcycle engine. I grew up with Dad in the shed restoring the Mog ( 59 plus 4 ) and fell in love with 205s as a 17yr old. Years later Dad discovered this fact after I had spent a year in France flying hot air ballons as a 19yr old. For work in france we use to visit an old Castle that had an amazing ( 500 + ) motorbike collection. One of the photos I took unknowingly was of that original motor which was in a case on display. Tuned out the owner of the collection was a mad Morgan nutcase at heart...

    So yes. Pug,Volvo now Morgans! Funny actually. My dad was marshalling at Oran Park years ago and met Adrian and Owen Wuillemin. They put me in touch with this site. The reason Dad was there was because the Morgan Club and the Lotus club, which those guys are apart of, are in the CSCA club. Small world

    car looks near enough new, fantastic


    ps bought a 403 with a engine modified with sigma pistons, his name was Cameron, was only 30 odd years ago

    Rob, TV on the blink again, this time only 1 - 2 days for repair, last time 10 days, thanks for your considered thoughts

    Well considering Im only 32 ( 85 baby ) Im certain it was not me! Although my Grandma, Dads Mum, had a Sigma wagon growing up. Metallic green paint and had 18 000 on it when she passed in 2001. Went to a 'collector' of Sigmas..

    Yes its almost new. It certainly drives like a new one I would imagine.
