Last Call: Scandinavian Death Metal Edition

Volvos have always been the cars that, in a dangerous world, could be the only thing standing between you and death. This custom 240 wagon however, looks ready—nay, eager—to assist you in meeting your maker.

    I have decided that we are living in the golden age of motoring. I just returned from an 1150 mile road trip, and averaged 65.2 miles an hour (105 KPH) over 18 hours of road time. Over that distance I averaged 31.5 MPG. I had heated seats with adjustable lumbar support to keep me comfortable, I let the navigation system do the planning (including automatically changing the route because of traffic conditions), and I had the choice of satellite radio, CD’s, music from a 200 GB built in hard drive, terrestrial radio, or my iPad to entertain me. Yelp helped me find decent restaurants enroute, and Expedia found and helped me book my hotel. The gas station app helped be find decently priced fuel.
    I’m still kind of amazed.

      No question, new cars are unparalleled in comfort, power and efficiency. It’s almost enough to make me buy one.

      AI is already here, it just didn’t take the form of Data or Lore

    Roger Corman made a special localized version of Death Race 2050 for Sweden. It’s full of blonde bikini models and regional specific models.

      Apparently yes. Unfortunately youtube directs me to other sites.

    Never really understood the concept of using hours/days/months to build something it takes a minute to look at, snicker, and move on with.
    Neat little gif:

      I’d say the majority of those following this thread have indulged in such a thing at one time or another.

        I’ve heard people say that if you do it with hydraulics connected, this little stunt would trigger a neat cleanup. =8^)

    Somehow I’m reminded of the blue hot rod hearse in Carmageddon.

    Northern Norway is experiencing strong cold and strong winds. This picture of parked Scania truck is a really neat illustration of that:

      Sure, I don’t miss snow and all that, but it was such a great combination of beautiful and deadly; like the femme fatale in the hard boiled detective novel you might be reading in the winter months, or the sirens of Anthemusa. I would go out to my embanked, windswept car with a shovel and a scraper and think, ‘Dear heaven that’s a beautiful, natural wonder never again to be beholden by mortal eyes… too bad I have to thrash the bejeezus out of it with this broad bladed aluminum shovel before I freeze do death on this spot.’

    We finally see evidence of how Chinese ownership of Volvo is impacting building quality.

    Dibs on the Virgos after they scrap it!

    Yes, a mule of the much awaited (by me) 262 SE, the shooting-brake version of the 262 Coupė by Bertone! We haven’t been closer yet!
