i want. Sorry i know i always copy you but i have only had sensible car's since my s13 and it is possible to run one of these on a budget. Plus no turbo to go wrong.
Has a comedy element to it aswell. I said i would paint it yellow and sit outside my girlfriends work beeping my horn and drifting cos she said she would never get in it. Bonus!!!

If you wanna be different go and get a 2.0 DOHC Sierra smile

Weld the diff, or fit an LSD off an XR4x4. More power and torque than the volvo too smile

yeah sierra is a good idea but wont the insurance be more? I also have limited drive space to keep a car off the road if something breaks. Everyone knows sierra's can drift but i volvo would be much more of a suprise.

i'd say deffo a 1 off, but if wheels has anything to do with it will be a 2 off.

will suprise a few people. but the ford route would be better, more spares available from scrap yards as never see this around.

around 8-10 years ago a neighbour had one of these, lad was only 18 at the time, fitted a triumph quad exit exhaust sounded mint for a Volvo lol. rumour has it he fitted a V8.

would the gastley volvo 480 1.7 Turbo (i think) engine fit?

Bet that went well.

Cali the lock on fords is rubbish for drifting.

You need to mod them abit by putting a p100 rack on and other little bits.

There are more bits for fords though yes.

Well it drifts its harder than the 200 but it goes sidways and stays there just need to get the feel of the car as its been 13months since i last had a car sidways.

As its got no tubby need to be high up the revs and havnt got used to that yet.

Fingers crossed mine does the same.

Need to buy a downpipe as mines leaking might get a stanless one i have found if i cant find one cheaper.

Also chucked the 14" alloys on looks alot better (if thats possible)
