Little trucks are cool. Painting your mini truck camo is cool. Being named Skeet is cool. But selling your camo truck for under a grand and having it appear on Nice Price or Crack Pipe means you're the ice man.
Volvos have always been cool in that kind of way that hipster fashion also made porkpie hats something that not just men in illustrated ‘50s cigarette ads wore on purpose. But throwing in a V8 sends the hipsters running and turns the boxy Swede into a sweet tire chirper. That fact was not lost on the 79% of you that sent yesterday's '80 245 V8olvo to the Nice Price place, and proved that if there's one thing Americans know who to do, it's make a decent pushrod V8.
