The waterfalls mini meet

Here you can talk about the joy owning a Volvo 480 brings. Non-technical discussions take place here, like what is the difference between an ES and a S version.

Thanks Martin

I was particularly keen for you to get to see Nilani, given she has come on quite a lot since I "relieved you "of her...I'm equally keen to see your new toy!

Let's see what can be done, pandemics, health, wives, weather etc all permitting!

All the best

Current: 1994 480 GT, 1995 480 Celebration 467/480 (plus 2004 C70 Collection)
Previous: Celebration 346 (sold to Alan480), Celebration 269 (scrapped abandoned project), Celebration 73, 1992 ES, 1988 ES - and numerous other non-480 Volvos!

Started learning about 480

Great day out, once the weather improved - thanks for organising it, Norm - and very informative.
Example: my scissor jack, which I believed was original equipment, turned out to be as useful as the proverbial chocolate fireguard. Without Nigel’s jack, I’d, probably, still be there!
Also, don’t drive through pools where you can’t see the bottom.
On the way home at 50 mph, I kept easing left to let the traffic pass but there was one bloke in a big off-roader who didn’t take advantage of the offer. It puzzled me a bit but when he turned off, on the outskirts of York, I saw he was towing a darn great boat!
Anyway, the ‘skinny’ got me home safely and I got a p/worn (!) tyre installed on Monday.
Now, just waiting for our French cousins to tell us when we can obtain replacement light covers.
Enjoy yourselves and stay safe: avoid the beast.
