  • The Recycled USCHO Car Thread - Cashin' in Your Clunker

    I couldn't find the other car thread, so here we go again.

    Being a long-time Volvo owner, I'll start with this epic Craigslist ad that explains why we love our Swede steeds.

    Unlike most cars, the Volvo 240 was not built on an assembly line. They were constructed by hand, outdoors in the snow, by teams of tall, bare-chested Swedish men who swung their tools in a synchronized fashion and chanted automobile-durability incantations in unison while they worked. This is the source of the Volvo 240's legendary durability.

    Unlike most cars, the Volvo 240 was not designed by professional automotive engineers. Instead, it arrived fully-formed as an inspiration in the mind of the designer while he was ambushed by a sasquatch and trapped under an avalanche in the Swedish Alps. After he was rescued by the centaurs which roam the Swedish countryside, and escorted home by the Royal Swedish Bear Cavalry, he returned to work at Volvo and transcribed, by way of yodeling, his vision onto paper.

    Eldest is a Volva mechanic. He's flipping one of the older (pre Ford) Volvos (the ones that look like a box on a box and survive like a tank).
