Soccer Mom’s Volvo on Steroids

Before there was the controversial “Hummer,” before there was a Ford (Bronco) or the much-loved International (Scout), there was the Volvo (TP21) AKA “Sugga”. The Swedish transauto designers must have called upon their God Thor for help in creating a virtually unstoppable off-road machine. If your curious Sugga means sow in Swedish.
The Sugga was a 4X4 military vehicle built for the Swedish Army back in 1957. Did you even know there was a Swedish Army? Anyway in my opinion this is one mean little Tonka toy. Maybe Volvo should revisit their old designs and put a modern version of this Behemoth on the road.  A post apocalyptic world may have a few  survivors. The common household roach and possibly a few Suggas.

    Love your blog entry about the Sugga, particularly the line about post-apocalyptic survivors—- an instant classic! You’ve captured the essence of the Sugga in a very brief, yet powerful article.
