    Was at the Home Depot a little while ago and saw a T bird almost the same color as the R

  2. Nice. But who taught the T-bird driver how to park?

    You know it is going to be an old codger.

    It was gone by the time I got out.

  4. Cool cars that era T-bird. I dont see too many around. And I dont think I've ever seen one in that color.

    BTW, I currently dont have one, but I am a fan of Volvo cars. I had a '72 142E that I raced ITB class. Similar to this but not as fancy...

    The R is stuffed full of IPD goodies.

    I tried to keep it uber stock on the outside and wicked crazy where it counts.


  7. I spent many dollars at IPD back in the day...

    They used to say any color as long as it's black.

    Nowadays they should say any color as long as it isn't Honda's energy green.

  9. Dave Letterman has a red volvo wagon built by paul newman
    Its featured in the comedian in cars episode with dave. Worth a look

    When SWMBO was looking for an R and came to the realization that she might have to settle for something other than her 1st choice she went for ASCOB. surprising how many people don't know what that means.

    Parked just like I would expect someone driving that car to park. I do like the colors though.
  12. Based on the photo (hard to be absolutely sure), I don't think Volvo driver did a whole lot better with his parking. :D :D :D (not pointing any fingers here @Mick - or... am I ?? LOL )

    BTW, that color suits Volvo a lot better IMHO.
  13. I had a 240 d l in the 1980s
    accordingly and as such i hope to never step foot in a volvo ever again
    of course

    fill up the oil. and check the gas
  14. Bad experience eh ?

    I can't say I know for a fact that current models are great to drive or great quality, as I haven't driven one in about 3+ years. New V90 though is one of the nicest looking vehicles on the market today in my opinion, with current model of XC90 not far behind. Interiors are just stunning good looking - subjective of course.
  15. Yes bad!
    i hold grudges obviously
    At least he didn't leave his shopping cart in the middle of the lot
    Or did he?

    I thought that was a fairly standard color for it when the first reintroduced the T-bird. Search Google images for "thunderbird car." Arguably it is sort of a reference, albeit modernized and metallic, to a color a lot of the original T-birds came in. Same source.

    Nice color. Cool of Ford to reintroduce the T-bird when it did. I do not think it worked out for it that well though.

    We still have the 245GT we bought new in1980.

    Still going strong.




  18. I saw this at MY Home Depot a few months back! For some reason I got a hankering for a hot dog that afternoon... IMG_0942.JPG
