    I gotta say, i have always hated Volvo and thought they were fuckin ugly. But their newest lineup would now be on the top of my list if i could finance right now. I saw the new 9-3 convertible in Stuff Mag and that shit looks nice.

    oh shit. I'm stupid. I always mix them up.

    The new Volvo's DO look badass. That is what i was talking about, but somehow got the Saab mixed in.

    meh, they have been ugly as sin ever since Ford bought them. Not to mention not nearly as solid a car. My mother drives a S80(I think) T5 (the last year before Ford took over), that is a pretty fun car to drive.

    I guess I don't know what the S60R is. Chances are though, it's ugly. :)

    Volvos don't suck anymore! hooray!
    I will always have love for my first car company, but watching the changes made under Ford have been heartache after heartache. The low point was the introduction of the S40/V40, not even offered with a manual trans. That, and the reliability of the s70/v70 going right down the toilet. But the introduction of the S60R, and now this V50 is definitely getting my spirits up. I'm looking forward to the future, when someday I'll have to settle down with a family and get a car that's practical and safe, but won't have to sacrifice sportiness. Long live bricks!
