  1. those wheels are awful

    I hate this car
     
  2. I hate niggers
     
  3. Agree. One think I hate is when people put huge wheels on an older car. Looks out of place.
    If they're spending all that money on the car, they could have at least bought some nicer wheels instead of those pep boys specials.

    The only think I like about this is that it has a ls swap.
     
  4. Land of the free... Engine swapping is illegal here. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  5. Should not change the V8...
     
  6. P1800 doesn't come with a V8....
     
  7. ugh
    rather have the bike

    Never had much love for the ES and this still doesn't make me want an ES, awesome none the less and good to know that a Yamaha SHO/Volvo V8 fits with minor modifications to the hood for clearance. Though a SHO intake might of cleared the stock hood.

    The wheels are too big, but that's neat.
     
  11. and different r!mmzzz
     
  12. needs a lot of work
     
  13. It's no M Coupe.
     
  14. I noticed this Volvo doesn't have a rear wiper

    a true racing machine
     
  15. What all of you big wheel haters fail to realize is that you need bigger wheels to clear larger rotors/calipers and there is almost zero tire selection for shorter wheels anymore. If you want an old car that will keep up with everyday cars of today, 15" wheels aren't really an option.

  17. That is true. I can understand needing the big wheels to clear brakes, but the dude could have found some less ugly.

    Hank is right
     
  19. I have no problems of the wheel size, but the way the wheels look.

    I'm not arguing about the style, but a few people mentioned how they hate big wheels on older cars.

    The bigger problem is tire selection. Just not as much out there for 17" wheels that are 8+ inches wide. Smaller then that and the selection is almost non-existent.
