I've been and always will be a Volvo owner

My first Volvo was a 1990 740 that I got as a hand-me-down from my father. I ended up selling that with a final mileage of 300k+ miles. My next Volvo was a 1985 240 wagon with 169k miles. The 240 is currently for sale and is being listed on IPD's classifieds. My current Volvo is a 1999 S70 T5 that has 17-inch IPD Pegasus Replica wheels, a K&N filter, LED headlights, LED fogs and XC grille. All the windows are tinted including the windshield. There's also a Blaupunkt Bluetooth head unit installed. I've done most of the work myself when it came to replacing the dash, front seats and all of the door lock actuators. I've been and always will be a Volvo owner. I never plan on selling this S70 either; only acquiring newer Volvos.

If you have a tricked out 122 wagon that you want the world to know about or even if you’re in the middle of your 240 series project and want to show off your progress, let us know. We’d love to feature you and your ride. If you own an 850 and have a slick how-to or tech tip you’ve discovered and want to share, send it on over and we’ll pass it on to our readers.

We're looking for full articles that tell your story. Some ideas for content would be to include a short history of how you got the car. Include in your article how you discovered Volvo and why you've stuck with it or if you're new to Volvo, what drew you to them. If you have a crazy story on how your Volvo saved your life, include that. It would also be neat to hear if you have any ipd products on your Volvo and how you've noticed the better handling from our sway bars for instance. Even if you think your article isn't print worthy, send it in and let us be the judge. We're happy to help edit the article for readability as well.

Tell us about how you caught the Volvo bug, the remedies you’ve tried to get rid of it and what put you over the edge to finally just give up and let the bug take hold.

Along with your article, please include pictures. The more the better.

We look forward to hearing your story and the opportunity to share it with other sick Volvo lovers who have caught the same bug.
