Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Always liked a clean Volvo turbo wagon. I ran into a guy that had one set up for road racing. It supposedly had over 300 hp which I dont doubt. Looked awesome lowered with wider wheels. Man that sounds weird...

Mine isn't quite stock , I've thought about lowering it but because it's also my tow rig I decided not to.
300hp is quite doable, in fact another local Volvo guy has a 240 wagon with my exact type of engine swapped into it that he has built to well over 300. He does the 1/4mi in the 11's.
I've had mine out to the track a couple times, best runs are in the low 14's....good enough to surprise/embarrass a lot of guys in Mustang GT's and almost every kid in a Honda 8)

If I had a nickle for every fish I've ever caught I'd just spend it on more tackle and boat stuff.

Gotta love a turbo car. I used to have a 4cyl turbo Mustang that ran 12's. A lot of guys were putting the DOHC volvo head on the 2.3l ford block. Hard mod, but apparently worth it. Cant wait to get back into it. I think my "baby hauler" (when I have kids) is gonna be a WRX wagon, it should be able to tow the boat also:)

Just remember that not all Honda's are slow. :wink:

I do dig the sleeper station wagon. My favorite is the Scooby (WRX). They're not that sleeper looking even stock, but they sure can move out with the AWD+Turbo!

I'm more interested in the 4 wheeler on the trailer. Whatcha got? Specs?


Had dreams of turning mine into this.

However it does just fine with the right tires. Yep, that is the mud line on the door.

Its whats left of an 1988 Jeep Comanchee when I tore into it.
It has a 4 liter to a AW4 with a np231/dana300 doubler. Triple sticks so I can control each axle independently.
Dana 60 up-front and a 14 bolt rear, both with 4:56's and welded.
38" swampers that I custom cut. Tires are wrapped around H1 double beadlocks that I recentered and added plastic beadlock inserts.
No doors or glass, and its fully caged with suspension seats and harnesses.
Complete flat belly, winch, hydro steering assist and brake line locks for helping in tight turns.
Its long and super low which makes it very stable.

Thanks, they are KMC monsters, 22x11 with neg 44 offset, they stick out the side of the truck a good 4 inches so I added the glassworks fiberglass fenders and bed sides and now they are flush.

The tires are toyo m/t open country size is 37'' tall 13.50 wide

Deff not the lightest combo, they are around 175 pounds on each corner.
