Volvo 245

Music | Avalon by Roxy Music

Just picked up my very first station wagon, a 1983 Volvo 245, white with turbo exhaust, Virgo Wheels, sport suspension, 4 speed with electronic over drive. It needs a few things- drivers seat, sounds, tinted windows to keep out of site my gear and a roof rack... odometer reads 300,000+, but still pulls strong.

I am really excited about the possibilities of setting up the dark box in the rear and shooting Wet Plate Collodion outdoors. I'll see in the next few months if it is truly road worthy for extended trips. The thought of driving down to Monterey or even cross country would be fantastic! Loading and unloading great is gonna be a breeze. I even thought of camping and just sleeping in the back. In any case, Here is to Adventure!
