This is something that I have never seen before, a 97' 850R with black painted 17-inch Volans. It looks really mean, and reminds me of a Spoon modified Honda. All it needs are tinted windows and it could stand proud next to a Stealth Fighter! I can't decide whether I like it or not, but it is slick. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P> <IMG SRC="http://images.andale.com/117/108/6320502/989520833256_vrgal1.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://images.andale.com/117/108/6320502/989520830947_vrgal3.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://images.andale.com/117/108/6320502/989520925567_vrgal6.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://images.andale.com/117/108/6320502/989520925813_vrgal5.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://images.andale.com/117/108/6320502/989520925040_vrgal7.jpg"> <P>-Drew

The turbo and R are not in the proper spot, but the rims look good. This winter I took my 17 inch Titan wheels and made the grey a few shades darker and then put clear over them, very trick look!

The "R" is in the right place (maybe a little closer), next to the "850", but the "Turbo" badge should not be there at all. As far as I remember, the 850R and 850 T5-R never had the "Turbo" badge on them.<P> <IMG SRC="http://images.andale.com/122/110/2983679/V3.jpg"> <P>-Drew

Sorry, I was thinking of my car, the R is in the proper place, and the turbo should not be there at all. The T5-R is located on the lower passenger side on mine and all that is up top is 850.

I hope to soon scan some pics an post them, even a web site with the day at the drag strip with the large burnouts where Volvo gained some respect that night! Will let you know when I have the site up. I will be at the import show this weekend showing the car.
