I was wondering if you get to keep the temp Swedish plates with ODS. If so, anyone have one for sale?

Yes, you get to keep them, and no I don't want to sell mine;)

And so, in the state of MA, I need front and back plates. Creative ideas to have both MA and my Swedish plates, please?
I just mount the State plate on top of the "Red" plate. There are a few OSD that do this.Makes it fun to spot one. On my commute I see a house where there are 2 OSD Volvo's. I really want to stop & talk to them. But I'm afraid of a stalking order :nono:

I've had a few great conversations with red plate people I've encountered in parking lots. It's like a secret club!

I'm trying to talk my dad into giving me his green plate, but not likely while he is still driving. I'm going to see if I can get a viynl decal version made and put it on the back window

Ditto! The White "See Sweden by Volvo" sticker and the FDC license frame, likewise, attracts many an enjoyable conversation.
True that! Actually had a guy in a newish MB follow me to my destination the other day to ask some questions about my V90 T6 Inscription. The red plate and S sticker drew his eye to the car, and as he looked at the styling he got more curious. First words out of his mouth were, “what a fabulous looking car, what is it, where did you get it...etc, etc.”

We kept red plates on the front and had our Alabama tag customized with the same letters as our Swedish tag. Love this secret little club even though I haven't met another member yet stateside. I did see one red plate in Disney World parking lot once but no one around the car. On the other hand we get countless remarks like "Overseas delivery.. I've never even heard of that..Very cool!"

It's been a few years since we visited Legoland in San Diego, but they used to have a section "reserved" for Volvo cars. The day we visited, there were three other OSD cars very close to ours. :D

Lost my red plate somewhere between the dealership and home today. I need a more secure way to attach. I had a European frame that snaps together with the plate sandwiched in the frame. Apparently it came apart and plate fell out. Luckily I have a spare plate. But if I see it on someone’s car we’re going to have words..

Did you retrace your drive? You might still be in luck . . .

After I returned home from picking up my car at the dealership, I noticed they had swapped my Gothenburg FDC plate frame with a dealer frame. I was seconds away from calling them with some choice words when I checked under the cargo floor and found it. I immediately swapped it back. But still that was quite presumptuous!
