If I were to go and take a pic of my windshield washer sprayer, would I then qualify as a volvophile ?
You are a Volvophile for living in AZ and knowing that your car has wipers.

Ha ! Yeah they're more like dust wipers here. When I bought Sveedy the washer pump hadn't worked in years and no one had noticed. I'm sure that 90 percent of the water she has seen has come out of the end of a hose.

Normally I would agree, but in this case they were. Better spray pattern.

Yeah, I think you could get an upgrade for that =P
