Dept. of WTF: 1982 Volvo 244 GL

You know, I gotta wonder why nobody thought to put Mercedes headlights/an Audi front bumper/a BMW 745 rear bumper/M3 mirrors on their 200,000-mile twenty-four-year-old beater Volvo before. I mean, it seems so obvious to me now.

"DRIFT CAR RALLY EDITION." Mmmm-hm. Thanks to Liz for the heads-up.

Was it built to star in a Bergman remake of "The Car"? The day-glo blue paint really accentuates the lines, too. Clearly an art director at work.

On a related note, could there be a Blog somewhere dedicated solely to the horrible misspellings one finds in eBay ads?

I nominate: "Re appolostered Seats"

I got it--maybe this was a special "European Union" edition Volvo (note the absence of any British parts). The E.U. ring-of-stars emblem appears to have been (thankfully) removed from the hood.

The tires must be Michelin.
