Does anyone know if that's a legit translation from Swedish?

That dodge video is superb, though the music was not '80s enough.

Hexen wasn't that really that great a game. I don't think I'd buy that car.

Yes, it's legit. Some of the funny English translations (safety bladder for airbag, for example) are (maybe deliberate?) literal translations instead of idiomatic ones, but stuff like the "hepatitis B" and "recipe holder" are in there in the Swedish as well.

Heh... I have a Volvo wagon, three years older than that one.... They never die. This winter, when the temps here were in the -40 degree wind chill, the old Volvo wagon was the most reliable car in our stable.

Them's fighting words! I love me some Hexen and Hexen II. I wish more FPS's were made in that sort of ridiculous crazy story and crazy environment while staying in a medieval/fantasy setting.

my coworker has two. one has like 475k miles on it and only needs a new timing belt/chain, the other one got rear-ended by someone going 60+ while he was going 0... and not only does it still drive, but the hatch even opens and closes right. It's totally mashed up looking, but the only thing that actually needed to be replaced was the tail light, with one of those generic jeep-type radioshack ones he just screwed on. The freaking window didn't even break, even though the back of the car was caved in. Then a few days later, someone else failed to yield and hit the front-side of it. Still fine.

If i had to pick a car to do an overland round the world trip, it would be a volvo 240 wagon. You can even sleep in the damn thing pretty comfortably.
