Plowkhana: Drifting in a 1956 Volvo Tractor

What would you do if you owned an old Volvo BM Terrier farm tractor and had a automotive team at the ready? What about adding a roll cage, boosting the engine to 225 horsepower, reinforcing the suspension, adding a four-point harness, and taking the tractor out for a bit of drifting? That’s what the folks at Vianor did with theirs, and the results are spectacular.

First, it’s great to see a driver who’s got a professional support team at the ready with coffee and biscuits to start the day and emergency donuts when needed. And driver¬†Rickard Nilsson holds up his end of the bargain, hooning the old Volvo through barns, across farms, and around the country roads all while drifting and burning those giant 13.6″ x 28″ rear tires. Looks like great fun to us, but perhaps they¬†should’ve hitched a plow to the back and got some work done at the same time.
