In the spirit of Deadspin’s Underexplained Lists, here is a list of cars I’ve owned or frequently driven, ranked based on nothing more than my subjective feelings toward them/recollections of driving them.
Someone’s done quite a good job converting it into a flathood, it seems to have minimal rust, it has a B23E (140hp instead of the usual ~100hp), it has a working overdrive, and it’s cheap. It just also needs a head gasket....not a huge deal though. I’ve gotta draw the line somewhere, however, and that’s probably right…
This crazy yellow volvo was making a racket in front of my house this morning. Turbo AWD, 6x6... not sure the model number.
Nowhere is the old saying “the hardest part of any journey is the first step” so applicable as Los Angeles. The whole of the U.S. lies east of the city limits and with it, endless opportunity for adventures large and small, but first you have to get out of the city. To do so efficiently, you must either leave before…
The sunrise made me realize that’s the only ethical and logical thing to do, in today’s world, is to swap a Volvo 5-Cylinder engine into my MR2. That follows, right?
Volvo truck with sticky-out front. The Americans like them, the rest of us not so much.
The Accord is no more! Introducing my T6 AWD R-Design baby in Rebel Blue!
But I recolored the bumpers and door handles on the Volvo. It looks a lot better than it did before, I swear.
On Wednesday morning, I rear ended a Ford Escape in stop-and-go traffic at rough 10 miles per hour. I wasn’t even using my phone, rather I was gazing out of the windshield and not fully paying attention to the crossover that had suddenly come to a halt just mere feet in front of the nose of my wagon. Embarrassingly, I…
One starts at over a quarter million dollars and is the de facto ultra-luxury SUV (sorry Dartz). The other is attractive and well-designed. Zing! Comparison pictures below
Three years ago, a similar list of this nature was made on Oppo, let’s see how far we’ve gone since then…
Volvo is taking a significant minority share in parent Geely’s Lynk & CO brand. I’m only pointing this out because it is all just a step so that Geely can eventually have Volvo become the Volvo Group and lead Lotus, Lynk, Polestar, Volvo Cars, and Volvo Trucks. We, specifically the US, need to prepare to see Volvo the…
The twin has had a much harder life, and has graciously given its 2 good tires with wheels for a very reasonable sum of $30.
Do want. I’ve seen one V60 Polestar so far, so hopefully that means people will buy these around here.
What about a Volvo that can walk a c6 z06 without breaking a sweat? My buddy bought an s60r about six months ago—stock—and has been going crazy with the upgrades. Constantly modding. Last I checked it was in the 520hp range, I’ll get more info on this beast next time we meet up.
Took today off to work in the Volvo. It needs to pass safety one last time before the practice is abolished in the state of Utah. My wife now working weekends means I am often too busy to wrench when I normally would.
It’s that time to empty my phone again as I go from 5S to 6S, so let’s see what my little Apple brick has picked up over the past three months.
Well, this is the status of our driveway now. Yep, the Ody is still my mom’s daily, but I now drive the XC70, my dad the V70, and my brother will have the V50 in a few months.
