Re: V70n 2.4T 2000 Pick-up! (Hasse)

Nice find. Have you seen the car in person? I'd be very interested in doing a feature article on the car. I've emailed them an email (in English, I'm a dumb American and don't speak Swedish <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> ) to see if they'd send me some more information.

I really like the truck but would donate an organ to have the EURO lights from one off the 940 series that they(http://www.bertgustavssonbilab.se/) are selling.

Now that is a nice replacement for my '83 VW Rabbit Pickup. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">

I figured you'd like this Chris.<p>On a side note, I passed the link on to the managing editor at pickuptruck.com ( <A HREF="http://www.pickuptruck.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.pickuptruck.com</a> ). He's in NJ right now and testing an XC70 for us. He suggested they should have done this to an XC70. I tend to agree. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

I never ever wanted to be caught in a pick-up. I have changed my mind.<p>-Poritz

Re: V70n 2.4T 2000 Pick-up! (Hasse)

At first this looks pretty cool.<br>But on closer inspection- Hmmm...almost <I>too</I> pretty for a pick-up.<br>Would <I>you</I> toss a 2X4 into the back of that car from 7 or 8 feet away?<p>The XC70 might have been a better fit with this idea, but this still looks like something out of Jurassic Park to me.<p>It's a revolvolution though, that's for sure.<p>

Re: V70n 2.4T 2000 Pick-up! (GrecianVolvo)

Hey, Don't get me wrong Yannis (or Hasse, for that matter), I think the guys who put this together are true artists.<br>It really looks great.<br>It looks so good in fact, at first I thought it might be a photoshop job.<p>I <I>still</I> think it'd be more of a "Look at me" vehicle than a utility pick-up.<br>I'd feel the same way if you showed me a converted Corvette with a cement mixer on the back or a Lamborghini hitched to a freight trailer <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>But seriously- it <I>does</I> get the viewer's attention.<br>I really do think they did a great job on this one.<p>Maybe we could look at this as a challenge to the crew at Volvo.<br>Could they base an idea like this on an XC90 platform (just a bit more rugged and less "fragile" looking)?<p> <I>Hmmmmm</I> .....<p><br>
