    Is there anybody there?

    Almost a reintroduction, Iíve been away for a while and my car has been mothballed whilst I was sorting my Range Rover Sport (and covid of course)so been on RRS and D3 forums but itís come time to get the old running again, Iíve missed her.

    So looking around on the Volvo forumís there doesnít appear to be much activity, whatís happened to T5/D5?

    Hopefully re-constructing the xc90 this week for mot, long time off the road and hopefully the re-placement engine is not a dog, will be good to have a tow car again, then may be another 850 could then be towed home to join the fold...???????????????

    You probably know already, but a certain project is moving to a new stable, I just have to clear a space and ready the tow car.......updates will follow and they will be on here first before any other platform, as I'm not over the moon with FB car pages tbh
