I have posted a few times, but I'm up in the DFW area so I lurk mainly.

If you're in Texas and into volvos you need to visit the Texas Volvo site:

i say own section of SEA or merged with one of the others from the main page section
i think it'd be down and then SEA would really recognize volvos the reason i brought it up is cuz i felt bad cuz y'all always post in the general car discussion and everybody except y'all and MB have their own place on SEA... hey thats a thought

maybe a section of the SEA main that was Mercedes/Volvo/Porsche??
since we don't have many of any we could squeeze them in together and that way there would be love for all??

Ok, new member here thanks to m4ff3w. I drive an 85 Volvo 740 diesel. Couple of slight mods, biggest is that the original drivetrain has been removed and replaced with a Chevy V8 out of an 89 Camaro. Nothing too special, just a TPI 305 and a TH700 R4. It's lowered, has bilsteins and a few other mods. It needs suspension work, needs new suspension bushings and the front subframe beefed up. haven't had the money to do much with it except keep it running. I also have a 1983 Volvo 242 4 cylinder turbo with lots of mods. it's been sitting for a few years, needs a new motor. The motor in it has around 400k and is tired, got a turbo motor out of an 86 which will be going in eventually.
I vote for a Volvo subforum also.....

one of my favorite cars was the 740 turbo wagon. a brick with bricks inside. Great car very euro for the mid 80's I say let this website grow to include all makes at a respectfull level. Hell, all the guys from the focus drive were great! I know there is a domestic forum but people want to have their individuality for their car. Vortex has a Bugatti forum for christ sakes..Make an Impala forum for us company car drivers. and one for Harold for slower MZ3 roadsters.

that kind of defeats the purpose of this forum. stirctly european autosport. All the other car makes (domestic, japanese, etc) have a section called "general car talk".

Otherwise we will have many different sections with nobody posting in them.
My $.02

I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or serious or a mix of the two. If there was enough traffic on this site to justify all those sections then I would create it. Vortex has tons of members and tons of traffic so they can justify all those forums. However, I don't think we have enough to justify having more forums than we have. We used to have an Import car talk section but there was hardly any traffic so I bunched it together with the European car talk section.

IMO, I don't think there is enough Volvo traffic to keep that section from becoming dead. But I could be wrong with the amount of people Matthew brings in. Maybe there is a ton of Vovlo surfers that just never post because there is no Volvo section. I don't know. I am all for the site growing, but there is no need to make a huge forum with so many sections that no one even browses them.

I agree with roob on the first point, the only reason i suggested a subforum for volvo is so that
A) they didn't wanna break off and create their own forum cuz we could use all the euro love possible
and
B) So we could at least test the waters, its a website not a stone block, if there isn't enough traffic we can always take it off, i just think everybody should feel respected/welcome
