Are Boxy Volvos like the 745 the next big thing for car enthusiasts? Old Volvos are the ugly ducklings of the car world, but the 1980s are back, and they brought Volvos.
What exactly makes an enthusiast dive into the cultus of a particular manufacturer? On my part, every time I have tried to formulate a theory as to why a gearhead finds himself randomly googling images of '80s Mitsubishi pickups or Taurus SHOs while on the porcelain throne during a 30-minute bathroom break, Iím stymied by the pathological weirdness of these impulses. Itís not performance, sleekness, or perfect engineering; itís not handling, practicality, or the ease with which a car can be modified.
