No wonder Volvo went under and the Chinese bought was left of them.

What about a saab turbo… great engines.. great cars shame GM killed the brand..January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109016MV60
Always cringed at how in the 80's/90's they put badges/decals on that advertised the vehicles specific technologies. It's not a car of that era without turbo, direct injection, common rail, intercooler, 5 speed, automatic, executive, etc, all plastered on them.January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109017scotty_rides
One of the best marketing campaigns of the 1980s – the Volvo Turbo Wagon vs. the Lamborghini Countach ads. https://images.autotrader.com/scaler/620/420/cms/content/articles/oversteer/2016/09-sep/09-20/257117.jpgJanuary 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109018the nation new england

The Volvo 1800 is the finest Volvo ever made. I miss my 1970s Volvo 142. Stick it into 4th gear, like you can drive it to the moon.January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109028Andrew Baird

SISSY!!!!!! put bunches of Esslinger engine performance parts in it… and drag race it…. Heck, harvest a XR4ti drive train and put that into the Volvo… And then, throw 12 cases of fresh eggs in the back, and then road course it, and try not to brake the eggs… That sounds like fun to me…January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109030Ludvig Ylisuvanto

1000 bucks for the headlights and the chrome trim around the windscreen, ship Em I need Em.January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109033Sergey Babkin
I didn't even know they made turbos with stick! Though the shifter doesn't look original at all. About the A/C, they had this aluminum tube that went along the fender, corroded from the contact with steel and let the freon out. Later they made the replacement part out of steel.January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109034scofab

I must not be using AutoTempest correctly because I've searched for 2 vehicles to no success…..nobody is selling one.January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109036Will Mac
Could have gotten that dead mint for 4 grand in the early 2000sJanuary 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109037Drayko78
Hey Hoovie I have been watching your videos for a few years now and love them. But one thing I noticed you haven't added any sort of 60s american muscle to your hooptie collection. I my self love this era of vehicles and would be awesome to see you bring something of that type home. They are very easy to work on once you know what is wrong with them so I can see it being something you could even work on! keep up the good workJanuary 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109038Zion

Paul Newman built several Volvo wagons with Ford V8 race engines with the Volvo looking dead stock to the unaware.January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109040Iexpedite1
I looked at an SVO at a dealership several years ago. It had a metal on metal sound when the boost came up. The A/C didn’t work but the compressor stayed engaged. I was trying to determine where the noise was coming from. I cut the belt leading to the compressor and the sound continued. The impeller was contacting the turbo housing. I was picturing pieces of metal from the turbo housing blowing through the intake. I passed but I really wanted the car.January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109041The Taco11
I always liked the Volvo's style.January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109042Believeinyourself
I had a turbocharged car, and the turbo did disintegrate gradually on the hot side, slowly plugging up the catalytic converter to the point 60 mph was maximum. The head gasket had blown previously, on the last day of warranty, they just slipped a new in there without looking too hard for why. Once the why was known, a turbo with similar characteristics was installed without removing the head, it 'felt' a little larger, took a little longer to spool up…but when it did, Hello, that catalytic was fried and removed, the inexpensive replacements weren't yet a thing. If you reset the engine computer, it would give you 4 extra pounds of boost, good for one pass. The shift linkage had the power to provoke fury in those susceptible to it, it was a 1987 Dodge Shadow ES Turbo, Black with maroon interior. It had those new Goodyear Eagle VR 50's with that directional tread pattern I had doodled almost everywhere from the first time I saw it, it was my second car, and first new one. Not exactly refined, but the heavy duty clutch that I did use in ways not intended, to keep that boost up when doing a burnout, it remained in operational condition until year four. It also did something very well that I paid no attention to at the time, loud music was always present…and I could still catch the snap, crackle pop of the exhaust every time I geared down for a red light. It was a sound I later learned to appreciate fully, and the 1994 Civic Sedan SE 5 spd was quiet…Quiet until the mid pipe rusted and a 4.5 inch polished stainless mid pipe back deep bass muffler was installed. The intake was a washable K&N, the stock air box, the top of it was in my place, the par5t in the bumper was sealed off. From a standstill, in 2nd gear, with the a/c on full, and the throttle opened as far as I dared, the Civic turned all the heads, that intake was loud indeed. Whoops, I've written another book, I'm gonna have to start publishing this mini books….I did have installed a well researched and balanced sound system, at highest maximum clarity, it would defeat all other sounds, I do miss that. Have fun with that wagon, and remember, there was a fellow that would sell you a ford 5.0l V8 install kit that was delivered in suitcases. Paul Newman was very enthusiastic about driving the resulting sleeper.January 17, 2020 at 11:11 am #109043Orcinus1967
Im 54 I came from a preppy town. I never heard of the brick. My buddy had a 760 sedan. Pretty sharp back in the day. I would be taking a good look at the turbo. But then someone has to pay the Wizard and it ain't me.
