      Nice R
      I was thinking after chatting with you, maybe paint the roof rails body color like the old V90s/965s had or paint them 426 Silver like the 2004 Titanium Editons and stand out.
      Both ways are really neat.

      The used to be a 2005 Silver V70R owner who painted his rails 426 Silver to match and it looked quite good.
      (Picture was on SS about 7-10 years ago).

      Here is a 2002 Ocean Race XC, you get the idea

      Nah dude, I just need to find a girl who is at least accepting of the Volvos and banjos, also wants a dog, and is as insane about sailing as I am, and I'm set. You think airplanes are expensive you should try racing 100+ year old wooden sailboats. I'm realistically not sure I can attain my sailboat goals without a gf/wife who has income (or is rich) and is as insane as I am.........and I'm gonna be right there with you guys making engineer money pretty quick. I've actually proved that concept but she lives on a different continent so that's a slight problem. Still made me realize that the unicorns exist though.

      But, barring that, yeah, 100% with you guys. Not into that whole idea of changing my life/passions to attract/keep women.

      Hah, I've got you guys beat. My wife is ok with me bringing home more cars than flowers, doesn't bat an eye that there are 14 different wheels in the house as well as dozens of misc old car parts, and will be buying me a Bentley when she gets a larger publishing deal.

      However, she does find it very annoying that I sell her daily driver before she has a replacement.

      The Mrs. hates when I work on cars but hates the cost of paying someone else to do the work more and likes those custom touches I tend to put on the cars. I fully understand the use of gloves, dedicated cloths, and foam q-tips for detailing. Stuck dealing with a 1.5 car garage and no bubble to store the cars. The S gets stuck outside and the X gets the prize spot to keep the Mrs happy. I am envious of the ops underground vault err garage.

      At Caffeine & Octane this am, I presented Skywolf and the Magicama a car warming gift. Atacama colored road snacks.

      The R did come out for our local Caffeine and Octane event. I left early to ensure a spot and to help hold spots with cones. Unfortunately it has been so long since I went that 6:30 is no longer early enough. When I got there it was still dark and a zoo and I missed that the normal Volvo contingent had moved one aisle over. The Brodozers blocked the view.

      Jppetersonatl and Denton helped setup a wagon outpost and established our coffee klatch with coffee and donuts. The R stole Wichita's weathertech mat to prevent spills.



      The R got quite a bit of attention. Many knew what it was while others were drawn to it by the interior. I was a bit nervous about the parking lot but the Nissan club bordering us was nice.



      I waited until I was home to break into the Atacama colored snacks, or did I? Nobody will ever know just by looking..

      Dogs= a MUST.

      Cats, they're OK. I've always had a cat or two around the house but I never had one that acted more dog like as some do. They just hang around and for the most part don't bother me and I don't bother them.
      I've always declawed mine but now, after a lot of reading, the current thinking is that this is very bad... for even an indoor cat. I'm not sure that I would be able to handle a cat with claws!

      Volvos= doable, usually after a ride in a fast R wagon!

      Banjos however may be difficult!! However, If you can play as good as the kid that was in the movie "Deliverence" then perhaps it would be acceptable...

      Our current cat acts like a dog and has an attitude. Our previous cats have always been laid back as yours have. I would consider a dog when this cat goes but right now this cat would not tolerate any other animal.

      Seemingly normal suburban garage holds a secret.

      You are right about the Volvos! My caR isn't even that fast with its worn out 286k mile turbo and girls still love it (even, as was the case in my proof of concept, with tree huggers ). That said, much as the turbo might help, the Pro Logic and R seats are probably all I would need in most cases.

      That kid in Deliverance couldn't actually play banjo, so I can play better than him lol. There was a real banjoist hiding behind him. I guess that means I'm set there? Or was the joke was that I wouldn't actually be playing at all if my abilities were on the same level with him?!

      Good catch.

      Yea. In addition to the cat and the Volvos my mom is also almost completely blind and on oxygen and lives here too. So it won't be uncommon at times to see me say "we" or "our" when it comes to the cat or in reference to shopping or eating out, though to be honest I think the cat actually owns us sometimes.

      There is some small movement on the other front this week... stay tuned.

      Read that last week. I really had no idea about just how different the Atacama leather was until I touched it in person. It truly is amazing to feel and sit on, it's extremely soft and supple. I've never experienced leather like that before. I've gone to the basement a few times over the weekend to just look at it and feel it lol. The leather in my other P2s is amazingly soft and new looking but they don't compare to the Atacama.

      The R has been named "Raleigh".

      It had a bad start to its new home when the hot water pipe located above it started to leak.



      I applied a temporary fix until the pipe can be replaced. In the meantime Wichita is parked there for now and Raleigh moved to the primary garage.

      Congrats on a great find. We recently had my girlfriend's XC90 shipped at the dealer's cost and had quite a different experience than yours. I definitely know to be more specific if I ever have to negotiate something like that again.

      I must say as well my 150K Atacama is VERY jealous of yours. Just seeing your pictures has me itching to go clean and condition it again.

      Ahh yea, not all transporters are the same. I've seen transporters first hand at the auction and have photos that show just how bad some of them can be. So when it came time to find a transporter I had a select list that specialize in transporting exotics, classics and show cars. I could have had the car transporter for about $500 or so but it would have been uncovered and who knows what else. I opted to pay for the transporter who had a reputation of being trusted with moving loads of show cars to car shows, on time and in the same condition it was picked up. As a result the transport set me back about $1100.

      The Atacama in this one is so nice I'm afraid to even sit in it and when I do it's never with jeans lol.

      Don't laugh - it is possible, and people have done it.

      I'm about at that point with my Alcantara R seats. I already wear cotton pants a lot in the summer when the 850s are out of hibernation because they're great for sailing, but then I'm covered in salt all summer because I went sailing.....and so are all my friends. Not really sure what to do about this problem.

      Another. There are tons of these images all over the web...
      Anyone remember the story about the guy who built a car in his house and then realized when it was done that he had to get it out? He had to cut the side of the house open, use a crane and then repair the house.

      I suggested these to Skywolf some time ago (pre R) for those awkward moments when you're expected to drive your co-workers to lunch. Disposable painters overalls. $7.50 each. Surely worth it for the peace of mind.

      I'm going to pickup a salvage R with Atacama seats and take those for driving. I'll put these in sealed bags to be kept in this condition forever...

      Make sure tomorrow's lunch guest wears the overalls... and maybe some gloves - the blue ones.
