I always thought that Volvo's signature was the diagonal sash across the grill. The other day I saw a very old ("historic") Volvo (I couldn't see the model designation since I was on the road) and it had a grill comprised of two large sections and no sash. Anyone know what model this might have been, and during what time frame they standardized on the diagonal sash?<P>Thanks.

I will definitely be there. I'm anxious to see how their "perfect" S60s handle compared to mine :) I'm also interested to see what they will really do without pushing mine whilst some guardrail intimidates me.

Speaking of badging, do any of you know what the history is behind the actual "logo" at the center of the sash? Isn't that the symbol (international symbol?) for 'man'? Any idea how/why it go incorporated into the badging on Volvos? Does it stands for something like "strength" or "power", maybe? Just curious... I've always wondered!

What I saw was definitely a 120 or some variant. (Love those Gangster whitewalls.) Thanks George.<P>
