When you've got a basket-case Model T on one side of the garage and a beat-to-crap Volvo Amazon on the other… and you want something cool to drive in, oh, 48 hours, what to do?
Well, if you're the kind of guy who has about 47 crazy car projects going on at any given moment, you drop the Amazon's engine and transmission into the Ford, then scrounge up everything else you need from random boxes of parts. The result: Volord!
I met Anthony, the Volord's creator, when I went to his place to buy my personal Hell Project. He was selling the Sprite to clear some space for more cars; you can see why in the photo above, which shows a tiny fraction of his collection: a daily-driver Scout, a genuine wrecked-in-the-TV-show General Lee Charger, and a Buick GS convertible. Yes, Volvo fans, that is a bit of P1800 you're seeing on the right side of the image; there's an original 500-mile Amazon wagon in the shed as well.
