LOVE that. Rickard Rydell was my hero back in those days of BTCC. In case you ever look at Bring a Trailer- I am one of "The Six" who all went in on a desperate and depleted 1979 Ferrari 308 together to get it running- then auctioned it on BaT. I was born a Ferrari fan, but let me tell you, as a person with intimate knowledge of those cars- they are awful. Slow- flexible, terrible brakes, mediocre steering... And then there's the penalty you pay for insuring and maintaining one. Other than the looks (which are debatable) I found there to be few redeeming qualities, but our car was pretty rough.My dream car in high school wasn't the Ferrari 308 GTR or the Countach. Oh no, Good Sir, my dream car was a Volvo 760 Turbo Wagon. In Red. Or this...from the same timeframe.
Twenty years have passed since Volvo entered two 850 wagons in the British Touring Car Championship. To this day it is still one of the bravest, nuttiest, and awesome cars. Why? Because racing wagon.jalopnik.com
