I don't consider that a WTF vehicle...that is someone with a very creative mind and mad fab skill showing off that they can think of something and build something most people cannot!

Never heard of him. Haha I just really think fwd is useless, especially when the car is a wagon! I don't think that fwd is as predictable as rwd. And nowhere near as fun

He's another anti-FWD nut....basically someone that lacks the understanding of vehicles and has not experienced a decent FWD car or knows why they came about to be used/created.

I too used to be narrow minded about FWD cars

Having had our S70 T5 on Thunder Hill racetrack for a NASA run group , I don't think it would have been any better had the car been RWD or AWD.

It would have been really classic if they had done the same to the caravan behind.

Pretty sure it's a 145. It's a famous custom car from the 90's.

Not fake. The Japanese do crazy things to cars, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

That may be but it's still a shop. And that looks like England. There's a mk3 Cortina right next to it.

Capt, not all of us have been in the VOLVO world for our whole lives. I was sent the 1st image by a friend from my former life in custom cars from the late 40's and 50s and 60s See my work below.
