1975 Volvo 245 Wagon Engine Swap
In a perfect world, station wagons and speed would not be mutually exclusive concepts. If the auto market doesn’t offer you a wagon that goes like stink, sometimes you just have to build one yourself. One Volvo owner has done just that by swapping a twin-turbo inline-six from a Toyota Supra into an early-model 240 wagon.

The Volvo V70 is gone and the Subaru Outback has morphed into a conventional crossover, but rest easy, New England college professors, Trader Joes shoppers, and liberal bumper sticker printers; the XC70 remains with us. It also remains worthy of consideration over "real" crossovers, even for those don't fall into one of the above demographic segments.

I'm a Volvo devotee, and it pains me to no end that they no longer import a proper wagon. This car is a pretty good substitute, though it really seems a bit long in the tooth compared to the XC60 and the new S60. Volvo has done a nice job tweaking details here and there to keep things from getting too stale, but this car, particularly with it's limited paint options and the heavy presence of gray plastic seems (and looks) like it's been around forever.

When is a wagon not a wagon? When you lift it, slap a bunch of body cladding on it, and call it a different name; at least, that's what Volvo wants you to think with its XC70. But it's hard to buy into the notion that the XC70 is anything but a wagon, particularly given the way it drives.
