    My dad is officially an old man

    Yes, he bought a Volvo. To be fair, it's a pretty decent car, the first non ford car he's had since I can remember but it's not too far away, they are have Ford engines and Focus underpinnings. S40 SE with the ususal toys and the obligatory pokey diesel lump - it's a facelift version with different lights etc, first one I've seen actually. My dad asked me to take a few pics so I thought I would stick them up.



    Obviously had to take some in the usual spot,





    Previous Astras: 1994 Cesaro 1.8 16v | 2002 SXi 1.6 16v | 2001 Coupé 2.0 Turbo | 1999 LS 1.6 16v
    Other Vauxhalls: 2001 Vectra 1.8 16v| 2003 Vectra GSi 3.2 V6 | 2005 Signum CDTi 150

    Aye, What Car called it "a Focus in a sharp suit". Which is true really.

    I do laugh at the whole Volvo "Old Man" Stigma.

    My dad actually works for volvo (not the car devision) and always has them as company cars, very nice cars imo. Unfortunately yes the S40 is a bit Ford, but they look smart and the interior quality is top notch.

    I reguarly get to drive my dads V70 with the pokey 5 cylinder diesel and its chipped, to be honest its a real hoot.

    My old man bought a Mazda 2. He already has a cloth cap.

    People seem amused when he hits the national speed limit signs though - he's down a gear and away down the road like a rocket. I can barely keep up with him...

    The Vulva is a nice motor now, for a Ford.
