What It Takes To Destroy A Durable Old Volvo

  10/27/2017


Volvos aren’t speed demons but they are known for their durability and safety ratings. So to test how tough they really are, YouTube channel Krimson37, beats on a Volvo 85o wagon repeatedly.

The outcome? It takes a lot to completely destroy this car. Even rollovers and minor explosives can’t kill it. Check out the whole video on PowerNationTV.com

This week on PowerNation Katie welcomes hot rod builder Steve Legens of Legens Hot Rod Shop in Martin, Tennessee. And with him a gorgeous 1960 Ford truck! One very interesting change Steve’s team made to the pickup was to the side trim; Ford never ran it down the entire side, but now that long strip of chrome trim looks fantastic.

They dropped in a Coyote engine with a Borla fuel injection making about 510 horsepower. The Schott Wheels are a nice touch. There’s no missing the custom PPG red paint they call “Cardinal Red” because owner Jeff Perkins is a huge Cardinal’s fan! Inside distressed Pecan color leather seats and a Tan interior, plus with stock gauges give the truck that vintage look. One beautifully restored truck inside and out, front to back.
