This is where the craze for big SUVs fare well!! No where else!!

This also looks like a filming location for one of DHL's commercials. The highway is jammed, a DHL van takes a detour to where a DHL jet takes off right away... leaving behind a puzzled driver of a competitor van. :-)

Enable HTML for YouTube EMBED videos?

Is there a possiblility of exploring the embed of YouTube content on MVS There are several items of interest that I would've liked to post as embedded videos here, instead of a link to youtube.. ;-) It works well for blogs and myspaces... :-) But perhaps, this could be in a new "video board" such po...

Volvo 740 940 960

I think you'll find the "Volvo Snow Race" video on YouTube very entertaining. It involves 3 740s and a 240 playing around in the snow..

Recharging dead battery using engine

My 960 has had the battery run down by the electric cooling fan that wouldn't shut off. This happened on a Saturday night so I didn't have ready access to a mechanic who could help me replace the cheap relay stuff. Anyway...my insurance company provided roadside assistance and jump-started my car, a...

I've had my fair share of Volvo-related dreams. I guess it comes from my obsession with Volvo's Safety claims, that I dreamed that I totaled my 740 and walked away from the incident.

White leather is actually not all that uncommon though...

well, to this end I would just like to note that the 940 turbo literally has the same torque ratings as a 960, so all else equal, the fun factor would be about the same, although the extra horsepower in the inline-6s will pull faster acceleration ratings. With the 940 you will enjoy the proven relia...

Cougar Ace -> Tricolor

It's been a few months since the Cougar Ace listing with Mazdas on board. Anyway... by traversing web links I learned of a related incident involving the Tricolor Vessel in 2002. This incident was caused by a collision with another ship, sending it 25 meters underwater -- with hundreds of Volvos (an...

I test-drove a 960 at the used car dealer where I bought my s70. I think it had ~170hp - but that thing was lamer than a duck. Think the engine must have had some problems, also seemed to have a valve stuck. Or is there so much difference to the stronger engines? Yes, later 960s are detuned to 180 ...

Anyways... my 960 has a 80 liter fuel tank (21.1 gallons), which is larger than the tank in the S80. Every trip to the gas station I put in about 65 liters (17 gallons) before the pump shuts off, which, at 3 dollars a gallon costs me $50. All figures have been converted from liters to gallons, and T...
