I despise traditional hot rods. I just do! It’s my Bad Car Opinion, I’m entitled to one, since yours (yes, YOURS) are all terrible. But one “hot” “rod” that I unabashedly love is the Volvo Hot Rod Jakob, based on an original Volvo ÖV4 from the 1920s. It’s different and interesting and such a lovely shade of blue.

You despise this?! Meet me at the flagpole at 3:30, we’re fighting.
