    I think I saw that line in someone's signature on here and it made me laugh. So, who mods a Volvo? This guy does!

    He lives local and is running a Buick GN 3.8L Turbo V6 motor in his Volvo station wagon. It is backed by a T-5Z tranny. He gives no other specs. Oh, it was originally owned by Paul Newman Racing...that is who apparently did the swap. The perfect sleeper? :eek:

    Not his best time, but the only one he has listed...

    11.608 @ 116mph /1.59 60'

    My buddy has a similar vintage Volvo wagon with an LS1 in it. Needless to say he owns an independent Volvo repair center.

    There was an impressive display of modded Volvos in the Ford booth at SEMA 2006.
