Volvo 264 GL

Another testament to Swedish build quality. This is a Volvo 264 GL that is one PSU student's daily driver. While taking these pictures I met the owner of this car. He informed me that this brick is on it's second engine and transmission. The old PRV V6 was replaced by a more reliable 240 unit and it's been converted from an automatic to a 4 speed. Interestingly the grille designates it as a diesel, though it's never been one. To quote the line from the movie Crazy People, "Volvo. They're boxy but they're good."
