What do you guys put in your "pen" holder? I personally love the way a space pen looks in there, very cool.<BR>

Pen holder?! I don't even have a CUP holder. Oh well, I'll keep using the door pocket for drinks and my pocket for pens.<P>I had one of those space pens once. The ink skipped all the time, and it didn't write well at all so I went back to using a Cross. It was definitely cool looking, though.<P>

I use mine for my sunglasses. The arms of the glasses, when folded, fit behind the pen holder quite well and it keeps them from getting scratched.<P>

I actually use the pen holder to stow the Volvo pen that I got at the ReVololution Tour. It's a nice brushed stainless thing with a big white "Volvo" logo on it.<P>Goes with the car, you think?

I think the ink is a little bit different from most pens. I seem to remember it was thicker, or maybe it was a gel, but on paper it looks the same (when it actually writes smoothly <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif"> ). The ink is pressurized so that it can write in any position. Retail price is about $20.<P> <IMG SRC="http://a0.cpimg.com/image/5A/34/7770970-e531-021C00FC-.jpg"> <P>

Well, I don't feel special anymore, I don't have a space pen... maybe I'll go out and get one. haha, anyways, I can't find my "pen" holder in my 850... if we're talking about the armrest holder... since it's the size of a pen holder, I can say I keep sunglasses and a "sensa" pen, with the squishy grip, I purchased it because it was the exact bright red as my car.<P>

allas, the pen holder is only in the 2001 V70/S60.....I think the 850 has something in the arm rest though.<P>As for the pics above, thats it....the best $25 dollar pen I have ever seen. Very well made (in USA) and if you remove the pocket clip it is a perfect fit in that space (pardon the pun)
