Sometimes, the more boring a car is when it rolls off the assembly line, the more amazing it can be in the real world. This is a naturally aspirated, 2.3 liter, four-cylinder Volvo 240 wagon with an automatic.

It does not have steering so fine and communicative that it feels telepathic. It does not have precision handling characteristics at the raggedy edge of the performance envelope. It is a standard, dull car. And that is exactly how it ended up midair in a field, flying to its loud, smoking, untimely demise. This video gets off to a slow start (the main attraction gets going at 3:36) and features some classically overplayed HOTD soundtrack material, but it has an important lesson for us all: cheap, old cars make the perfect hoonmobiles.
