    To anyone interested in a good source of used parts -

    Mainly for 200 and 700 series Volvos, but sometimes arrangements for other models' parts can be made, a shop called

    Steve's Volvo Parts

    office: (214) 324-0444 pager: 800-670-7019

    recently opened. It is run by Steve Fordham, who has been in the used Volvo parts business for over 10 years. He is always really helpful and makes great deals. He is also willing to look for hard-to-find parts, and he ships anywhere in the U.S.

    Subject: SAM Update (go fast goodies)

    Howdy all. Time for an update on SAM, aka Steffanson Automotive, aka the folks who bought RSport, the official Volvo racing division.

    SAM has a 50 page Swedish language catalog and an English language price list. They mainly have B23/B230 stuff. Complete heads and goodie kits for B230s, then a broad spectrum of brake, suspension, drive train goodies for 240s, mainly.

    I've placed two orders with them. The phone call (early AM east coast -> early PM Sweden) costs around $15 ($3/minute). Kalle Nilsson is the guy to ask for. I say "is English OK" and he swaps language modules. Parts are accurately described and priced. Air shipping is around $15 for a couple pounds of stuff. I've gotten HD engine mounts ($70/pr), HD rear a-arm bushings ($50/pr), and HD rear trailing arm bushings ($110/pr) from them. Pricey, but unavailable elsewhere. Most parts come in blue Volvo baggies.

    Once you get the catalog check with the Volvo dealer first as many parts are available thru Mother Volvo. Unsure if SAM distributes Volvo stuff, or there's a back door from SAM to Volvo, or what, but there is definately cross-fertilization there.

    For a catalog I suggest sending $10 (shipping is about that from Sweden). Address is Steffanson Automotive AB, Bilgatan 5, S-442 40 Kunglav, Sweden. Phone 46-0-303-944 30.

    I really wanted the HD strut bearings but they're gone.

    Dear Paul,

    Group 6's phone number is (602)290-2442. Frank Freeman is the owner.

    Do you have a copy of the European Car Magazine article on his 740 Turbo that does 0 - 60mph in 6.6 secs and 150mph top speed. I beleive it is in the May 1993 issue. I lost my copy.

    Please let me know if you are pleased with Group 6. It's my someday dream.
