Re: My venetian red 00VR and the pooch (brickhead)

I STILL have never seen a Venitian Red in person (and probably never will)!<br>How many of these were made for the US, what, maybe 10-15 of them?

It's a very nice color in my opinion - not flashy like the brighter reds.

Re: My venetian red 00VR and the pooch (JRL)

I have seen this car in person, and as Big Will states, the paint color is subtle and shows a lot of depth if well cared for. <br>I am still searching for that elusive 60,000 mile Olive that I am sure is out there somewhere.<br>For me, the car is somewhat exotic and special, and to be able to own one in a color that is not seen everyday is the way to go.

Jim,<p>There always seem to be too many costly surprises with the higher mileage vehicles. I realize that the lower mileage doe not necessarily translate into a less problematic second-hand car, but it sure seems to me that there is usually a definite correlation.<p>The Silver sounds like quite a find, but I guess that the point of my first post was that I wish for something more unique.

Re: My venetian red 00VR and the pooch (brickhead)

Very nice! That car with those tasteful upgrades make me so jealous so I 'settled' for a Venetian Red S70 AWD...<p>Jim, when I posted pics of my S70 you said it was not Venetian Red Metallic, what made you relaize paint code 445 REALLY is VRM?

Re: My venetian red 00VR and the pooch (2000S70AWD)

As far as I know Venetian Red is a 2000R color only (and newer Volvos)<br><I>The 98 dark Red Metallic is a slightly different color, </I>(I forget the actual name, I call it ruby red metallic which also is wrong)

You may want to check the regional forums but I think every year there is a swedish car day at the Transportation Museum in Brookline. Tried to get there this week while I was in town but only open on the weekends until it warms up a little more.
