Theme Tuesdays: Volvo 240s

10

If Friday’s questionably styled and Toyota motivated Volvo left a bad taste in your mouth you can consider today’s Theme Tuesday as the mouthwash to cleanse the palette.

Like the majority of Theme Tuesday highlights older Volvos are a car that stock very few people (die hard prancing Moose fans aside) would say look ‘good’ in factory trim.

However give them an altitude adjustment, along with a new set of dancing shoes, and suddenly they become a decent looking little –and not so little in the case of wagons– car.

From what I hear they are also dead nuts reliable which is a bonus.

Kick things off nice and simple

I’m pretty sure this photo is at least five years old but the car is still quite nice looking

Some cars look ok on banded steels while others seem made for it, 240s fall in the latter

This looks like an unreasonable amount of fun, which is why I am posting it

KISS rule applies…. these Borbet Type E(?) wheels look great tucked

Lots of people miss the mark with flares but this is money

  1. There is a video series of a guy from Finland who builds crazy turbo Volvo 240. It’s called “Bamses turbo underpants” 🙂

    • @John thanks for all the info!
      @Dave Gatebil is on another level. I should have a Theme Tuesday just on crazy Gatebil builds really.
      @Klaavs thanks!

      It appears I should post Volvos more often.

  2. Thanks for the feature! And getting the volvos out there!! Older pic go check me out on Instagram @erictheboss253 for updates!
