Driving A 240z Rat Rod

This is a loud car. The noise is inescapable, it comes through the rattly doors, through the stained t-tops and through the hole the size of a fist in the firewall. The noise isn't just loud for driver though, a fact confirmed by the heads of tourists strolling around the…

2008 Volvo C30 Review
