Volvos were at one point the safest cars to drive in the world. They still are one of the best they just don't sell that well. As for the 264's. That car was a tank...pure iron through and through. Tried drving that baby without the power steering...its not a good experience..trust me. All in all its a cheap luxury car that get stuff done.

The pic is a tribute to the old school.

I want a Volvo.
I have sick, sadistic dreams about a Volvo 140, or even a Volvo Amazon.


So many things you can do with that body.



As well, the 4 banger engines are built, for the most part, incredibly stout. People have pushed a pushrod 4cyl Volvo engine to over 400 hp. The later DOHC engines have hit 600hp I believe (B121FT I think).
As well, the Amazons and the 140 series were fairly light, usually around 2600 lbs.

I love the car, Volvo is from Sweden, where i am from. Good car, quality car and very cheap.



From Sweden?, what do you really know about Volvo?, Volvo is originally from latin, and in Latin volvo mean's something like "i'm rolling" or something like that. So no, Volvo is not a Swedish car!

I second this. Or third it. I clicked because I thought the O.P was going to add something about twilight on here.
Anyway, every time I hear "volvo" I automatically think of the car below. I don't know why. The first thing that pops into my head is that image.

.....Thanks to the power of Google:
A teen-girl fantasy movie involving a vampire? *facepalm* Another shot to the face of the original vampire mythos that was actually interesting and potentially frightening.

I hate modern rendition of classic monsters. Nothing is fuckin scary anymore.
