As I'm sure everyone knows I own the best car ever(TM) a Volvo V70R. »Enjoy some shameless self promotion below!
I was reading this article right here and thinking about Volvo as they have been (awesome, RWD) and how they are today (FWD, kind of boring but great all the same) and that in the future, if Geely gave them the means and the funding, how it would be interesting to have Volvo and the remains of Saab from NEVS under one… »
I showed the car today. It acted... special. Shifts were rough, but still better than usual. Lady offered me $1400 but cannot close until Friday. I have two showings scheduled tomorrow which I did tell her about. One guy said if he likes it, he'd give me a $500 deposit and the rest of the money by next Tuesday. No… »

My wife doesn't drive, but if she learns and we get her a car. I'm thinking 240 wagon with Vette wheels.... I think she wants a Lexus SUV.... we need to work on that. »
The front is just absolutely amazing... and the interior, and those wheels, and pretty much everything about it.
What do our Opponauts think? Beautiful Volvo wagon body (although not brown) on nigh-indestructible Toyota chassis and powertrain. »
As some of you may know, I own a 1986 Volvo 240. The 240 is very much a car. It is so much a car that, if you were to give a five year old a pen and paper and told them to draw a car you would end up with a Volvo 240. A box with wheels. »
