Hmm.. so  it's destined for the scrapheap Denty?


no way.. it's a lovely thing they did, well done Volvo!

It's based on a classic car, might have some new parts, like nearly all offit... it's still an instant classic. Yer just yealous that it doesn't have a darky denty paintjob with a maple leaf onnit! that's it !! :rotfl:

 Rod aren't supposed to be "GANGSTA" They had the look "right" until they messed up with the HipHopWetdream rims. Yet they were SO close!!  Almost impressive and would have been if they got the rims right.
 Real "Hot Rods" don't have "twennies". Post that on olskoolrodz.com or the HAMB and I guarantee there would be 20 pages of how they got the look oh so wrong with the wrong rolling stock.

 Otherwise, I like it. But can't get past the rims. They're just wrong and really do ruin the entire car. Then again 20"+ rims pretty much ruin any vehicle.

 But then, you can't expect a modern corporation that gets their ideas from "trends" to know really what looks right and wrong. So considering that, they were really really REALLY close. At least they didn't put a huge ricer wing on it. Phew....lol

 other then that. I like it.

 Coulda' been worse. They could have made it a DONK!

I can understand the rims, just a modern wheel styled after the wood spokes used in days gone by.
Its cool to see non-mainstream autos, kudos to Volvo for the attempt at "Retro-Modding"
