I think the poor thing would collapse under the weight...4k's didn't have
diesels, probably with excellent reason :)

This only worked because they used a diesel car; note that with the V8, the
0-60 time was painfully slow(almost 8 seconds) with an auto tranny(slower
with the manual.)

The actual Volvo/V8 swap I believe the person is referring to is the 960
wagon conversion done with a Mustang 5.0 and a 6-speed stick.  Done for the
Prez of Mobil, if I recall correctly.
