I was coming back home from Virgina and decided to take River Rd. exit and enjoy the Saturday morning a bit.<p>When I was coming close to this plaza on River and Falls Rd, I saw this nice black 855R pulling out. I was checking it out big time with its nice dark Volan wheels. Sure enough, the driver pulled right out behind me as he probably noticed me checking out his car. I switched to the outter lane so he could pull up next to me. Hehe...we were definitely in sync and certified Volvo nuts, as he sped up next to me, we both rolled down the window at the same time and greeted to each other.<p>We both had these grins on our face, it was great.<p>He said, "How are ya doing?"<br>I replied, "Nice car there..." And the we gave each other the nod and went seperate ways. <p>That just made my day....don't know, thought that was really cool. I'm not sure if he was the same 855R I encountered few months back on the highway.

Re: Volvo Owners Rock! (Johann)

Any time I enter an intersection with another Volvo across or left or right of me, I always give them the right of way. Might be dumb, but I just love seeing another volvo roll by me before I take my turn.

I saw a nice 1800E today as I was pulling into the parking lot at KFC. I parked next to it with one open space between us so I could get a good look before he pulled out. Looked like a very nice original early 70s with light green/blue paint and no visible rust. I can't remember if I've ever seen a 1800 on the road before.<p>I would rarely give up my right of way to a Volvo. They drive too slow! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> I've actually drawn a honk from another 240 driver, and not under friendly terms. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> (it was his fault, BTW)

Re: Volvo Owners Rock! (The_one_n_only)

I had a great experience at a three-way stop one time in my neighborhood. Three Volvo's coming to the stop sign at the same time, my 960, a mkI V70 wagon, and a S80. I flashed my headlights, but I don't think the other drivers noticed how special the moment was. <b>LOL IRL!</b><p>-Drew

Re: Volvo Owners Rock! (Poritz)

I'm reminded of a trip up I-95. I was piloting the 940 when I was passed by an S70 w/a radar detector in the windshield. I 'latched on' for the ride. As we passed a 240, it sped up and slotted in behind me. We went on for nearly an hour, a caravan of Volvos in reverse-chronological order. It was a cool experience for a Volvo-geek.

I had a similar highway going experience. I was driving the S70 on the 401 here in Ontario when an S80 passed. Sped up and joined with him, before I knew it we had another S70 behind myself. <br>Cruising in a pack of Volvos had me grinning ear to ear. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Volvo Owners Rock! (The_one_n_only)

sucks that i dont get the same here... i try to look at the volvo owners here and say hi or sumthing, but they ignore me. oh well.<p>but then again, my c70 doesnt look like a typical volvo, and it is sort of a rare site to see a c70, so one wouldnt recognise it.<p>i think its the volvo owners that mod/take close care of their car that will notice and say hi. we're the only ones that care about whats under the hood <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"><p>i raced a supra with stock turbos but other mods the other day, i lost of course, but he complimented my car as i complimented his. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
