Head Turner: 1980 Volvo 240 Custom

This next car comes as a tip from Tom C who writes: Just…it’s like…I don’t even…but…**?  This is a logical reaction to what can only be reasonably described as a Volvo that has been turned to a boat or perhaps a Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper.  I dunno.  I think that Dr Freud would have something to say about wish fulfillment or perhaps Oedipus complex, but I'm just spitballin here. Find this 1980 Volvo 240 Custom offered for $7,500 in Auburn, WA via craigslist.


From the seller:
1980 VOLVO 240DL
fuel: gas
title status: clean
transmission: manual


1980 VOLVO 240 CUSTOM CONVERTIBLE. FUEL INJECTION 5SP MANUAL. 4 WHEEL DISC. BRAKES WITH PANHARD BAR. COOL EUROPEAN RIDE $7500 OBO.

    The front end looks like a 240 and a Peugeot 505 mated and had an offspring who became an evil warlord.

  9. Do I hate it so much that I actually love it?

  10. It looks like they couldn't decide what car they really wanted so they proceeded to graft a Porsche 914 on top, some weird old Nissan Skyline GTRish front looking thing and an Alfa Romeo Spyder ducktail on the back and then topped it off with an old Mustang hood scoop.

  15. It has a "PANHARD BAR". Don't they all?
    Really more like an absinthe bar from the looks of it.
    Not that I have anything against absinthe. Mmm wormwood.
