New Year Resolutions Energy Recharge Battery with TNT

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Jan 6, 2019 in 1982 Volvo 240 DL, 1993 Volvo 940, 1995 Volvo 460, 1999 Volvo V70

This year for my new years resolution I’ll start things with a new battery.  But, where should I get it?  Retailers like AutoZone and Advanced Auto can be pretty pricy.  Walmart is an option, but perhaps you don’t want to be stressed out with the long wait.  Well, wait no longer.  Just go to your local TNT battery company near you.  They have the best deals and their batteries come with a 1 year free replacement warranty and a 5 year prorated in addition.

Tips to Avoid Craigslist Car Scam

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Dec 28, 2012 in 1993 Volvo 940, 1995 Volvo 460, 1999 Volvo V70, Volvo V70 XC

1.  If the price is too good (way below blue book value) – then walk away.

2.  If the person is selling quickly (because of a divorce or being deployed) – then walk away.

3.  If all of the pictures are stock photos (like from a dealer or with great angels and scenery) – then walk way.

4.  If they want to know where you are first (so they can say I’m not local and won’t be able to show you the car) – then walk away.

5.  If the seller asks for money upfront- RUN, RUN, RUN away.

He’s Backkkkkk…. [1989 Honda CRX]

Posted by OurVolvo.com on May 30, 2012 in 1993 Volvo 940

One Year Latter after the April 2011 Tornadoes- My little step-brother Honda CRX 1989 is back up and running.

Just a few dings and dents but we are good to go thanks to:

1.Some guy on craig’slist.com in Atlanta Georgia for the Hatchback.  Funny story because when he said he was selling a Honda CRX 1989 hatchback he meant just the hatchback.  Everything down to the windshield wiper, struts, you name it were removed.  But it still did the job and we agreed on an acceptable price after seeing it’s condition.

2. Charlies Used Auto Parts & Receyling in Dayton, TN for the Honda CRX 1989 passenger side quarter panel glass.  They are family owned and operated Christian business, however, if you go to get anything from this Salvage Yard you need to pay upfront and have them pull the piece which can take sometime because their yard is 5 or so acres.  We called saying we were coming from Cleveland, TN and would be there in about 1 hour to pick up the part and then when we got there they say it will take about an hour to pull it and they would need payment none of which we were told over the phone.  This is understandable because I’m sure a lot of people say they are coming and  don’t but it really puts a damper on the honest ones when they are not told this info and we had to wait for about 2 hours after traveling so long.

3. Gary and Dewayne at D-H Top-Auto Glass (1402 Jones Street SW-Cleveland, TN) for the Honda CRX 1989 front windshield and installing the quarter panel. They are just two good ole country boy brothers in business for past 50 or so years. It is businesses like these that keep our country alive. With a shake of the hand on a gentleman’s agreement they ordered and installed the glass without any deposit. And they offered the best price over Safelite Auto Glass, Abra Auto Body and Glass or any other off brand competitor.

Also special thanks SVOboy for his tutirial on Rear wiper and motor replacement for Honda CRX

1 Year Since Passing of Volvo 940

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Apr 27, 2012 in 1993 Volvo 940

Today, April 27, 2012 marks 1 year since the massive tornado super cells which swept across the Tennessee Valley smashing our 1993 Volvo 940 just a few hundred miles from reaching membership into the Volvo 300,000 club. We take this time to remember as it was featured on New Channel 9 in their special edition story of the 1 year anniversary.

She has been missed. RIP. We continue to pray for the loss that others have had which has been much greater than ours and we are thankful to God that our lives were spared.
