Welcome, and congrats on your new S60! And speaking of '70s-era Swedes, my Dad had (and STILL has) a '78 Volvo 244 (DL, I think, with Lamda Sond on the grill?) in a bright yellow/gold color. I *should* know -- that was the car I learned to drive in, learned to change oil on, learned to wax with a toothbrush and Q-tip on, etc.!
I've wanted one of my own ever since...
As the proud owner of a shiny new S60 (I can still call it new, even if it's 5 weeks old, right? ha ha), I can say that they've come a long, looong way. (Although, the older ones are darn smart-lookin' cars, and I find myself eyeing them up in traffic all the time!)
Anyway, congrats on your new Volvo. I'm sure you'll love it, and I bet you'll really enjoy this board, too.
