Volvo 240 vs New York Auto Show

vs-championMy latest post for FCP Euro has me pitting my black brick against all the cars at the latest New York International Auto Show. You won’t believe who won!


Now Posting on FCP Euro

redblock-tortoise-300wI’m excited to announce that I’ll be posting how-tos and Volvo musings on the FCP Euro blog. I’ve been buying parts from FCP since I bought my brick in 2006 and am grateful for the chance to share bits of automotive wisdom and misinformation! I plan to post there once a week and will be creating illustrations and diagrams to accompany the text.

For my first post I wrote a general overview of Volvo redblocks and their reputation for slow reliability, “The Volvo Redblock: Aging Tortoise of the Automotive World“. For the illustration I rendered the B230 engine block as a steady, reliable tortoise.
