Sweden is the land of Volvos, we all know that, but what is not widely known in this part of the world (NZ and Australia) is what these Swedish guys are doing with their Volvos, in particular the 240 series ! Danne Engberg is one of these people who are customising these cars into fantastic looking- and performing Volvos that only the Jap car owners downunder can dream of.

Danne has built this car called "Yellow Danger" himself, he recently purchased another customised 240T called "Blue Danger" which he is restoring at the moment. More surprisingly, Danne is not in the Car trade, he is actually a Telecom technician !

If you are impressed with this car, you should check out Danne's own web sites (links below) and check out some of the other special Volvo 240 cars produced in Scandinavia. I would love to see some of these cars downunder. It will certainly change the image of Volvos here. (Webmaster)

Update: Danne sold the Yellow Danger in 2008 and there have not been any updates on the website about the status of Blue Danger but I'm sure he's hard at work on it. One great reason to check out his site is the amazing collection of modified Volvos he's taken photos of with his digital camera over the years! Every model is represented, even A-Tractors (something like a kit car built on Duett chassis), from mild to wild to cars that you'd barely recognize as a Volvo. It's a good reminder to always keep a digital camera with you as you never know what kind of custom car you might come across!
