"For decades no car has been a greater paragon of automotive virtue than the Volvo station wagon. Safe, durable and grimly slow, the Volvo wagon was the car of choice for virtuous-minded sociology professors long before the Prius showed up to steal its environmentally conscious thunder. The faculty parking lots at Vasser were full of them!

But for Pennsylvania's Dug Strickler, the best thing about the Volvo 740 wagon he inherited from his dad is that the engine bay is big enough to swallow a Corvette LS1 5.7-liter V8 and two T4 turbochargers. The result is a 190-mph flying shoebox.
