Longer, Higher, Wider, Lower: Swede Driven Mad By Sunless Winter, Builds 6-Wheeled Volvo Masterpiece!

Illustration for article titled Longer, Higher, Wider, Lower: Swede Driven Mad By Sunless Winter, Builds 6-Wheeled Volvo Masterpiece!

Some Swedes cope with the sunless Scandinavian winters in the sanest way possible: pounding caffeine and/or alcohol by the hogshead. Others, however, crunch through the snow out to the shed and fire up the cutting torch, which is then used to create works of genius such as this 1980 Volvo wagon, equipped with what appears to be a Rover V8, dual rear axles, and custom-van-esque interior. Inveterate tipster JanTheMan translates thus: "Another V8 Volvo, Old price winner on the biggest custom car event in Sweden back in the eighties. It is a Volvo 245 1976. It is longer,wider, higher, lower. No glassfibre!"

Yet another Scandinavian crazy-ass idea, immortalized for us to point and gawk at. Horns on hats, slightly rotten fish as a delicacy, what next from the edge of the Arctic circle? Diesel-powered submarines? Racing semis? Nude beaches next to the North sea?

Baked, baked, and thank the generous God Almighty, baked. Hallelujah for Svenska.

The filter cans on my painting mask are bigger than the filters on that V8. I suspect the vacuum booster on the brake system is well served. The engine intake system, not so much.
