If I had the money I would so pick that up and drop a Ford Supercharged 5.4 in there... or maybe an LS1...

Or if I was feeling feisty, can we say Briggs & Stratton???

lol there are volvos everywhere around here.

10-25-2007, 02:13 AM
Definably to each is there own lol looks like a refrigerator sideways on wheels.

Oh an i think with 205,xxx 3k is a joke.

10-25-2007, 02:35 AM
Umm....Its a wagon. BUT at least YOU'LL think you're cool.
To each his own...

10-25-2007, 05:53 AM
I'd say it'd be cool just because of the sleeper quality. Kinda like those turbocharged Dodge minivans that run 12s. It's just wrong, but so right (if you're driving it).

im guessing you have sarcasm somwhere in ur sentence?...i hope...

I mean, the car is fugly and very lame. But you gotta appreciate a car from 1991 with 205k+ and still not a crack or tear anywhere in the interior. Along with what appears to be original paint. That thing is spotless for a lunchbox on wheels.

3k is a reasonable starting negotiable price.

Not really. I mean, I'm not gonna lie, I'd take my Celica any day, especially a fast Celica over that Volvo. But if you have the money it can be a neat project that can prove funny as hell at the strip when you stomp a Corvette/WRX/randomsportscarlolol.

id hit it....but my sister would love that thing

10-26-2007, 05:31 PM
I'd give it to my daughter to drive. It nice and safe, you couldn't race the thing to save your life...oh wait. There is way too much room in the back of that thing for a nice girl to get into trouble. Guess I'll have to find something else when the time comes...

10-26-2007, 06:00 PM
The Volvo is so ugly, it's beautiful.

I love station wagons, especially slow ones that can be made very fast (like that Volvo). There is nothing more embarrasing to a sport coupe than being wailled on by a wagon. Also, you can haul stuff.

I'm also the sort of person who deliberately tries to be uncool because I think it's more fun than being cool. Then I laugh at people who do try to be cool.

Right now I'm looking for a GM B-Body wagon (Chevy Caprice, Buick Roadmaster, Olds Custom Cruiser) to be my baby and/or boat hauler.

you hit your head today man?

10-26-2007, 11:48 PM
that thing would be so awesome with an ls1

5 years ago I owned a bright cherry red Volvo 240 GLT station wagon. The car originated in UK and was shipped to Germany to serve as a British Consulate car, then brought back to the UK.

It came in full GLT trim, aloys, leather, air con, auto box etc etc and a nice tight turbo - which I tweaked. The auto kickdown was ass twitching tail happy fun.

Make no mistake, the 2.3 turbo when tweaked is drifting happy, not a straight line missile... well it is if you spend enough on it.

It appears a lot of you guys simply only see the old hat cosmetics box'y shape and dull reputation.
