So there I was....<p>Came into work this morning, and after passing the guard shack / ID point, I found myself driving next to a '0X C70 T5 convertible with a red 854 GLT behind it, and a white debadged 855 with a wing on the rear hatch (factory wing, not ghetto-fab wing). All of us were freshly washed/waxed it looked like, and I was eyeing the red 850 (I could have sworn it was a T5-R before I saw the badging) when I caught the 850 driver eyeing my caR. It was a mini Volvo GTG on the way in to work, just thought I would share!! Anyway, it was pretty kewl...<p>Cheers!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Steve

We traded some bushings that he had in his VR because his wife didn't like the vibration. He was an Air Force officer and a real nice guy. I can't remember his name though, I am rude <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Just pulled through the gate and drove for a short while, after which each peeled off to the respective place of business. Would have loved to stop and chat, but unfort.

Re: (FORD420diesel)

This is good stuff. I always try to appear approachable and friendly to other volvo drivers, and would stop & chat if time allowed. <p>We need more of this interaction. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
