      Is this a rare color?

      I picked this up today. Is it rare? It had some weird red license plates in the trunk. It's a 2005. I think I'm just gonna take it apart for parts.





      2006 S60R, 90k miles.
      Sonic Blue w/NordKap.

      2005 S60R, 122k miles.
      Flash Green w/NordKap.

      I'm totally kidding guys. I picked this up today from the 3rd owner. 122k Miles on the clock. OSD car. Once I get a sufficient laugh out of this thread because of the title and the knee-jerk reactions I'm sure I'm going to get, I'll be updating the OP with all the information and resize/post more pics.

      Also, to whoever that was in Chicago that was going to fly out and pick up this car, I'm sorry I snaked it from you, but I absolutely had to have it. I MUST have both Sonic blue and Flash green SR's.


      [Edit]: HOLY **** that was a lot faster than I thought. Sorry guys!

      I also apologize for the lack of pics, I would have gotten it during the daytime, but the lady that did own this car made me run through hoops to get it. Not only did she call the car ugly, but she literally **** talked every single aspect about the car. I was dying inside.

      I saw an older lady driving her grandson around in a similar darker R today. Probably had the same sentiments. Could be wrong but donít really see them out on the salted roads!

      It's an extremely rare, one-off prototype from when Volvo and Marshall Field's Frango Candies collaborated to provide the mintiest of caR's.





      Unfortunately, big chocolate killed the project and in favor of the Mars, Inc. project with VW -- an M&M themed Beetle.

      I'm a VW refugee. Those a-holes part out cars for the stupidest reasons. No wonder a decent A2 Golf is like $5-7k now, they were all parted out by Vortex morons.

      I can picture one of them buying a Veyron and being like "Man, the tires are low on air... and it needs gas.... better part it out. Who needs door cards?"
