Sometimes life hands you a 1989 Volvo 745T Wagon, and you are forced to turn lemons into lemonade. Douglas Strickler knows how to do this, and his proof is in his Volvette. I just stumbled onto it recently, and it may be old news to everytbody else in the world, but I saw the car and fell in love.
It started life as typical family truckster, and now has a fire breathing LS1 twin turbo, backed with a 6-speed manual transmission. It has 500+ horsepower and could likely get you to soccer practice at the speed of light. It’s got bigger brakes, 18 inch wheels, and wagon loads of custom parts. I can’t even imagine how fun this car must be to drive. Only two words come to mind. Do Want.
