While performance upgrades are a big focus for many Volvo owners, many more have other priorities for their cars, and this is no different for our staff and Project 245. Hauling a certain German Shorthair Pointer around in the back is one of many purposes the 245 serves, and the dog's short wiry white hairs seemingly have a plan of their own to invade the interior of the stationwagon.<P>Read more about it on our main page or in our Features section monday 4.29.02.

Thanks, I had to find some way to weasal the mutt into it. He rocks, though I curse him every time I vacuum the cars. Oh well, wouldn't trade him for the world.

When my wife and I travel, the back seat of the 940 gets filled with the following:<P>1 Cat<BR>1 Rabbit<BR>2 Parakeets<BR>1 Cockatiel<BR>1 Greek Tortoise<BR>1 Betta Fish<P>Luckily, they all have carriers, and the 940 has leather, so fur/feather/scale infestation is kept to a minimum. I took the old family dog for a ride in my 240 <I>once</I>, years ago, and I'm <I>still</I> finding his hair in the carpet!<P> <P>

It was an obvious pet and kit mobile. I spent a good 15-20 minutes vacuuming it slowly to get all the dog hair and crumbs out of the carpet, but I think all that crap was protecting it, because now it looks great!<P>

There was some guy with a dog named "Eibach", and there was some quote like "hey man, someone lowered your dog!" <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>
