I've been browsing around your site for the past couple of days now, so much information to absorb!

As you can expect, Japanese cars are 90% of what you see on the road here, but Volvos have a pretty decent presence. Since I now have one, it's normal that I notice them more often, and usually see one or two on the road whenever I drive around, from older 240's to the drop-dead sexy new S90's. I've crossed paths with perhaps 5-6 other P3 V60s and S60s too :)

Oh and you also see a lot of 740s and 940s with 1JZ or 2JZ engines swapped in them, turns out cheaper than fixing/replacing original Volvo engines, and must be a blast to drive!
