Re: Top Fuel 240 ;) ([email protected])

Awwww... You poor thing! Who did this to you, you beautiful little 240? Ha ha. <p>Okay, I admit I'm intrigued by you, and you're growing on me, despite the initial shock. The fact that your rear wing (<I>wing</I>, on a Volvo, boggles the mind, no?) matches your paint is a nice touch. And your slicks are neat. (How on earth did they ream out enough space in your wheel well for THOSE?) Ooooh, and you have a roll cage, too! <p>Want a new home? In my driveway, perhaps? I promise to keep your rims shiny, although I'm not quite sure where I'd get top fuel on a regular basis. (Just THINK how quickly I could go to the store for milk in THIS Volvo! Tee hee hee.)

actully it would take you longer to get the milk, cos you have to straped in, warm her up, go to the shops(2secs) unstrap, cool down......but never the less what a <I>cool way</I> to get the milk <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>michael.

Re: Top Fuel 240 ;) (devalmyth)

Yup. It would take longer, too, because I'd take the <I>loooong</I> route. <p>(Not that I don't ALREADY take the long route in my lovely S60! No disrespect intended to it, mind you. I love mine to pieces, but there's nothing wrong with admiring OTHER Volvos in addition to my own, right?! That's not considered "cheating" on your Volvo, is it?) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">

Actually, this car does not want to take the long route to anywhere. It does not go around corners very well except at very low speeds. It likes going fast in straight lines for short distances. The big slicks are put in after the body is "tubbed," which means the wheel wells are cut out and large aluminum tubs installed in their place. The axle is also narrowed (made shorter on each end), so the slicks stay inside the bodywork (of course, it's not the original axle either).
