    Old School *$&%@#~

    Mine was the 2L fuel injected (Bosch EFI), but there's a lot of guys to argue dual webers is where it's at. This was my first "toy" and first car I ever worked on. Did the timing belt, heater core, suspension, and quite a few other large projects on her...If I get another, i'm going carbureted next time as I know there's more to learn there.

    Darlington 1973. Some big names, big cars, and big side burns on a tight track.

    Paul Newman had a couple Volvo sleeper wagons, first with a Buick Grand National engine then with a super charged 302.

    Here's an article with some pics. He had three commissioned, for him, letterman, and a ny businessman. I really wish the SUV didn't kill off the wagon. They were so much fun and useful.
