The Brick Newsletter August 2010

Limited time sale pricing available from Thursday, August 26, 2010 through Friday, October 08, 2010

Check out the video interview of Bergen Wagner and his incredible 1985 Volvo 245 project. It’s been in his family since it was new. He has owned it since 2002 and over the past year and a half he has made some very serious performance upgrades to it. We also have a couple of short articles on popular upgrades to the “Red Engine” family. The engines in the 1976-1997 4 cylinder rear wheel drive Volvos were finished in a nice bright red paint and hence, are known as the “Red Engines”. Polyurethane bushings and mounts (aka “Poly” ) have long been a staple product for us for over 20 years, but the material is still a mystery to many people, so we wrote a short article about the versatile material used in many of our performance and long life parts to help you determine if it’s the right choice for your needs. You’ll also find a bunch of maintenance and performance parts on sale in this issue as well as a special offer to receive a $100 ipd gift certificate with the purchase of set of 4 of our very popular 17” Pegasus replica wheels for Volvo 240, 740, 760, 940 and 960 models.
