I get a chuckle out of the lower grille for the massive intercooler it certainly has.

I'm with Black Bart. Kill it! It's a Volvo made to look like an ugly American gangster's car from Dallas. Torch it! Axe it! Do something!
1996 960 Saloon ($1200, MI:140205, Silver Snoozer)
1998 V70 XC black ($1K trade, Mi:143,995/151K, The Cloud, totalled 5/2/20 @149K, engine toast @ 151,1XX)
1998 V70 XC white ($50 cash, junk, donor for my black XC)
2001 V70 Ba white (sold)
2009 Impala LT 3.5L (sold)

Plans for The Cloud: junkyard engine, new lighting arrangement, will be offroader.
My daily is faster than an Impala (9.1 sec) but still a snoozer (8.2 sec).
