Any schmuck can take a family sedan and crazy glue a V8 emblem to the back and call it a day. I’ve even heard tell there may or may not be a Prius running around with a Hemi emblem stuck to it. I don’t believe this to be the case. I believe that V8 emblem right there earned its place on the back of that Volvo.
This is the tale of two brothers from Loosiana, their love for motor swaps and a morbid completely normal Volvo obsession. Follow along below to their streetstalking streetwalking story:
After noticing the oversized exhaust pipe, the R-type wheels, and the gauges running up the A-pillar, I figured I might actually be onto something. I know the V8olvo has been done before, and for under five hundred dollars! But if you’ve got more cash than that, why stop there?
In the name of Truth, my brother–who just acquired a Volvo 940 himself–and I elected to eat our Mr Roo’s po-boys inside instead of at home.
We took a seat near the window to make sure it didn’t run away, and near po-boy’s end we saw two men walking up to it. I stepped (okay, ran) out of the restaurant and asked the man what he had under there.
“LS1. Wanna see?”
