caseybullfrog asked: Favorite Volvo wagon ever?
There have been a lot of great Volvo wagons over the years. From the early Amazons, to the ridiculously quick V70Rs, but my favorite Volvo wagons ever are the early ’80s 240 GTL turbos, preferably in black, two prancing moose stickers on the side. (Full disclosure, my dad owned this exact car (minus the moose stickers) when I was young - turbo whine was an anthem of childhood).
These early ’80s 240s were the original sleeper wagons, packing turbo power and family comfort in one stylish package. 240 turbos from this vintage also still had the square double front headlights and the classic Virgo 5 Spoke wheels, the perfect combo. Truth be told they were not particularly fast, but they felt quick and were a blast to drive. To me they remain the quintessential Swedish car, quirky, well engineered, yet packed with fun.
There’s a red one for sale on eBay right now.
