      Cross-posting from the SPA XC60 threads...

      Inside Edition would like to remind you that you shouldn't buy COVID-19 tests in the parking lot of a grocery store from people on Craigslist.

      Awesome! I'd reach out to Volvo Corporate and share your story. When I shared my Volvo Saved My Life with them, I got a pretty sweet Volvo Totebag out of it that I use when I go grocery shopping.

      It's always exciting to see "your" car in a commercial. That's what inspired this thread.

      100%. The 940 looked similar but not as angular due to slightly different shaping and a higher trunk line + the body color was used on the C pillar of 740s vs blackout on the 940.

      Fatal attraction, 1987. Why Michael Douglas was such an idiot in this movie I will never know. Glenn Close grossed me out before I saw this movie.

      In addition to narration by dead characters, possible incest plot lines, and other intrigue; the Sky 1 TV drama “Delicious” features a beautiful, red 900 series wagon driven by Dawn French's character, Gina. I couldn't find any photos or video of it, but it's featured in a few shots in Season 1, Episode 4.

      When comedian James Corden and football legend David Beckham need to drive from LA to Miami, they go full Miami Vice and drive away in a Testarossa only to get caught in LA traffic. A white 240 sedan makes a guest appearance directly in front of them.

      The video is over 10 minutes long, but to skip ahead 9:21 to see the final sequence.
