My wife just saw me browsing the board and asked, "Are there any new TurboTom videos? Wait, it's Tom's turbo garage, right? Look and see if he posted a new one."

You have a fan club my friend!

that's classic. One might find themselves asking questions, only to realize they don't really want the answers. Reminds me of this gem.

Thank you sir, glad to! As for the Galant, I plan on driving it most every day until winter comes. I don't have anything major planned for it, but I may have a couple more tricks up my sleeve!

Once again, awesome job. Looks like I need to walk through the Volvo section at the junkyard too. I can't believe nobody has thought of those wheels before for their GVR4, CSM or Expo/Summit wagons.

the reason why the first gen S40/V40 rims are a perfect fit, is because that car was developed in conjunction with the Mitsubishi Carisma, which itself is a modified version of the Lancer/Mirage platform. In Europe, the S40/V40 can be equipped with the 4G93 1.8L Mitsubishi GDI engine. You can bolt Evo1/2/3 front suspension right into the S40/V40, however out back it is slightly different from the Lancer/Mirage.

Tom, these videos are nothing short of amazing. They are very informative and highly entertaining. Do you recommend polishing compound or toothpaste for dental applications?

Thank you sir! I bet there are some other Volvo wheels that would look good to if these don't turn up. From my research, Volvo BBS wheels in this size/offset are very common in Europe and are practically sold as scrap.
