WHAT MAKES THESE ESCORTS PARTICULARLY SWEDISH BUILDS?
They put something in the water in Scandinavia. They must do. Something mind-altering, something to stimulate and spur on, to help its inhabitants push through the harsh and lengthy winters. It’s a unique quirk to the inhabitants of Sweden, Denmark and Norway that as soon as the denser snow starts to elbow its way into their scenic vistas, they roll their cars into the garage, light up the paraffin stove, stick the kettle on, and hoik up their sleeves.They sequester themselves away for the biting winter months and emerge blinking into the spring sunlight with an entirely transformed car.All those hours with no place to be but the warmth of the garage, tinkering, honing, refining… Slow time, fast cars.That’s the Scandinavian way. Oh, and massive horsepower andVolvo diffs, that goes without saying.
