Buy This Camaro-Murdering Volvo So I Don't Have To



Just six short hours away from my home sits a Volvo 740 Wagon with a Ford Cobra V8 stuffed under the hood.

Read the rest on the Mustang Source homepage. >>

Could that be Paul Newman's car? Wayne Carini from Chasing Classic Cars featured itfew years ago. I think the suspension was hot-rodded too.

Sinfield had one of these on coffee cars and comedians.

When it comes to creating the ultimate sleeper, a Volvo is a great starting point. History is littered with lightning fast Volvos, whether they be from the factory, or Frankensteined in someoneís garage. Right now I am staring the latter right in the face and doing everything I can to keep the phone on the table and my wallet in my pants. Just six short hours away from my home sits a Volvo 740 Wagon with a Ford Cobra V8 stuffed under the hood.

Thanks to the wonders of Craigslist, I know that this thing exists, I know itís for sale, and I know that with just ten-grand and a short drive, I could be embarrassing every Camaro I come across. The want is strong with this one.

Along with the new motor is a new exhaust system, upgraded fuel system, better brakes, track-ready suspension and fresh tires. Oh, did I mention the new T5 manual transmission sitting in the middle?

Be still my beating heart. I need someone to come buy this thing before I buy it myself and give my wife a great reason to call a divorce lawyer.

/It is, after all, still a Volvo 'round that engine...

Definitely sleeper cars. Just the Volvo's massaged by Polestar will smoke most others on the street.
