Volvo - The Game
« on: April 21, 2009, 10:40:14 am »
Hang on to your hats...  "It's Volvo - The Game"!  (which to me sounds a bit like:  "Thora Hird - The Movie"!)

I drive a volvo, I love Volvo. Richard Rydell raced BTCC with an 850 STW......  Looking forward to this.

 Sad, but that's where cars are going. Look at jag with the XF. Boring, generic styling, could pass for a Toyota. Styling is dead and "brand awareness" as a badge is in. Ironic really in Volvo's case as I have went from dismissing them as a younger person to quite likeing them only to watch them get packed with "nanny electronics" for the incompetent, (Come ON!! FRONT parking sensors!!??!! Blindspot warning systems! radar operated brakes!! Jesus people, hang up your F8888ng phones and DRIVE!). I know Volvo has always been about safety but now their cars are becoming undriveable from it.

 I still have a soft spot for Volvos though....

I must say that I care not much of the s60 concept, rather looking forward to "other volvo racing cars"

That would be my reason to buy it :)

Well not buy.... free... good stuff that is :)

 Yup. Once people stopped being told to avoid a crash and mentality went to how many airbags you had to survive one, they stopped bothering. I always liked the V70R but it was a turn off that you were stuck with the stability crap.

Hmmmm, I actually like this Heico tuned s40 a lot better than that concept, but that won't stop me from getting that downloaded when it is ready.  :)
