Prolly a B28?

My take on this:

- His tires were too small for what he was trying to do, which is herd pack ice.

- He doesn't like his truck very much.

I figured maybe the camera man / guy next to him was confused about the home of Volvos or the paint scheme and lights had something to do with Switzerland and I'm a dumbas$. Probably the later.

All other 240's quake in fear at the '81-'82 242GLT, they go weak at the knees & collapse due to an uncontrollable adulation that's near idolatry.
