How much work is involved in doing that? There's a wagon like that at the MN C&C. I saw it with the the hood down and started to walk away. When it was behind me it started up and I figured it was some classic car or truck that was there but when I turned around I saw it was the old Volvo station wagon. I was shocked and amazed. Would be fun to have one. Its like the perfect sleeper car almost like that Volvo Amazon that takes down a Ferrari 458.

Yeah, the car is a kick. It turns a lot of heads when it fires up. Just finished the suspension, everything replaced and upgraded, way more fun to drive now.

A lot of work went into that car and it's far from "done". It's pretty tight now, after all the work on it. A long way to go yet. I should post up another video of the V50 doing a four wheel burn out, lol.

Big block or go home, lol. I wish i still had my 244 :( i would have loved to have shoved a 383 or 440 Mopar in there...but i'm sure the 340 (6-Pak?)would be more realistic.

F'n sick, Chris. Love that car and what you've done to it. Sounds and looks amazing!

Thanks man. It had good bones but looked and handled like a junker. Dented, gray primer, ripped interior, etc. I painted it back to original tomato red, traded the Virgos for an interior out of a wrecked 92(looks perfect), all bushings replaced, struts, strut mounts, shocks, sways, front and rear, tie rods, etc, everything was done. The electric fuelpump just died, I'll replace that Monday, a lot left to do. Upgraded front brakes, Rx7 aluminum calipers and 740 turbo rotors in the trunk awating install. Aluminum heads are sitting in my shop waiting install. Too little time.

I'll post an action video of V50 next week or so, I need to find a deserted place and have a buddy drive the 242 GLT V8 while I drive the V50, side by side, that would be cool, the V50 will easily win.

Light at the End of the Tunnel

The 240 needs the rear suspension tweaked to even up the Loading or a Posi Rear .

A V8 could be done on a V50 , but the Tunnel welding would really - tear up the Interior . ( No Tunnel )
