  1. Indeed, according to a Swedish acquaintance, who also hadn't seen one before, it's a 263 GL, and a unique prototype. According to the retired Volvo designers being interviewed in the vid, they saw SAAB doing 2 door coupe/hatches, and decided they'd have a go. The one thing I picked up without having to have translated was when they were talking about using the wind-tunnel at MIRA in Nuneaton, during the design of the 740. I'll put the YT link in the appropriate thread...
  2. Shamelessely snapped from a YT vid (in Swedish) of a Volvo museum. Always liked the big Volvo coupes, this is even better!
  3. That must be exciting* in left-hand bends
  4. I wonder what the V5 says it is, and I wonder if that's why the number plate is obscured...
  5. Sounds like it's just a worn tensioner/belt, pretty easy to sort, and likely why it sold so fast
  6. Very subjective choices, most of which I personally disagree with, but the AI narration is hilariously bad, partly because the script is bad. Some of these cars would fit in the "Cars you never knew existed" thread
  7. What a mess... hope it can be saved. At least if you ever decide to retrofit a turbo, it already has the dash
  8. Also the A-pillar appears to be further forward on the mystery car. The front end in particular is sitting very low, there's no gap between the top of the tyre and the arch at the least.
  9. Great looking things, but why is the green one being driven round a track by a Lego man?
  10. Is this a previously unknown member of the McGann acting dynasty?
  11. Bloody hell, you might have won the thread there, for me. One of my dream cars. My miss was a Z33 Gran Turismo 4 special edition in black, for 5 bags. I passed because I really wanted the Alezan leather (this had black). Then covid happened and the finances went out the window...
  12. Wonder if there's ever been copyright issues with that name...
  13. F*&@#$% diseasel EGR valves!!! 🤬
  14. It's one of those low (relatively) cost, high liability jobbies, especially if it has the early cambiocorsa gearbox. Strange things to see on an MOT advisory though, I wonder what happened to the mounts? Rotted away? Broken unobtainium plastic parts?
  15. The shame of buying an 8krpm aftermarket rev counter, then having to set the shift marker to 4krpm... 🤣
  16. Looks more Tom Walkinshaw Racing inspired to me, in that you'll look a right Twat When you Ride around in it.
  17. Looks more like an RS500 wing than an Escort one to me? Definitely doesn't work though... I wonder if it was part of the bodykit? The rest of it is a decent copy of the Tickford one.
  18. Interesting use of a fuel pump gasket as a dash ornament...
  19. Kadett B maybe? The slope of the wings is about the best clue to go on.
