    I had an old Volvo I got from my brother a long time ago. It was a legitimate (and fun) car but the ignition was shot so we had to hotwire it and he flunked title transfer 101 as well. Eventually we were politely asked to take it home and park it for good, so I left it on the side of a country road. It was really odd because since I didn't technically own it there was no way to get rid of it. At all. I hate trash dumped by roads. But we figured the tow company would make out a bit and the salvage would be worth their time. It sat there for three weeks and I got chewed out by a neighbor, but eventually he agreed with me and then it was hauled off.

    I have to admit that there's a certain boxy charm to those old Volvos.

    rarely, do cars that get my name on the title, remain stock.. RARELY.



    3.5L 12v intercooled Turbo, 252hp @ 7psi. A chip, a wastegate mod (14psi), and 3" exhaust makes 400hp..

    It still got mid-high 20mpgs on the highway.. Everything instide was in German, minus the speedo. It took me 2 months to learn how to work the AC! LOL

    Good eye, Andy.

    I've had seven, total. I love 'em. That one is rare '87, Moonestone Blue with Cossie LSD. 356hp/409lbft 2.3L 8V. Was gonna do a 16V head conversion on it, but never got around to doing so.
