      Bump for an aging thread... Out shopping for the remodel today at Ferguson's on Valencia in SF and a sharp looking VR with tow hitch parked next to us. Anybody on here?

      Finally found another R aficionado in Sac! Saw the R on the grill in my rear view, driving faster than most, and automatically assumed he wanted to play. We "raced" just a little (suburban area). He has 15K worth of goodies that my stock ride does not have, so he won. Says he's been to this site, so if you see this post sir, please PM me! Black, S60, R on grill only.

      I saw a little old lady in a pristine looking Black V70R driving down the Skyway, I was riding my motorcycle so there was no weirdness.

      I am sure she just doesn't appreciate it like I do.

      New on here, haven't posted anything (but this!) I live in Pittsburg and commute to Alameda daily, if you see a white s70 with pitch black windows, I mean seriously they're 2.5%, all of them, give me a honk and wave!! I will soon have a turbo back exhaust and will be dragging my skirts! I see you guys all the time out there. Of course, I keep my eyes peeled for me fellow 70 series guys!

      Hi all, first post on this board. Thought this thread might be a good place to ask a local (SF Bay Area) question (and if not, please to direct me to the right place!)

      New to my '04 S60R (not to Volvos though) and am seeking SHOP RECOMMENDATIONS in the area. (Prefer South Bay, San Jose area) but open to drive to a good shop. Just looking for a place that does good basic maintenance, troubleshooting and repair. It's not that I can't do the work myself (was a dealer shop and parts manager at one time) but just don't have the time nor proper garage equipment to do anything substantial.

      Thanks in advance and again, if this isn't the right place to post this, let me know!!

      Cheers,
      Mic

      Man, it got quiet in here while I was between Volvos.

      Seen a Rebel Blue Polestar parked on the Belmont / San Carlos border (omitting street name for privacy, since it's at a residence..), and another (the same?) at a soccer field / park in Hillsborough today.

      I wonder if it parked alongside a blue Porsche?

      BTW, if you're in the Bay Area, you need to join the VOCCAL Band. We're pretty active local Volvo group, with just over 140 people.

      I do hope that after all this discreditable shuffling we may be taken into action. It has a wonderful way of reconciling a man with himself: and with everybody else, sometimes. - 1st Lt. James Dillon
