That's A Nice Looking Volvo Mate.......

Recommended Posts

Was driving through the city yesterday and was at the lights waiting. 3 blokes in the pub were arguing about the stag as follows:

Guy 1 - It is a volvo you can tell by the back end

Guy 2 - But the nose is not a box, must be something else like a falcon

Guy 3 - I reckon its one of those new commodores, they come in wagon

Guy 1 - Bet you $50 it's a volvo

Then I drove off, I wonder who got the money LOL

Guy 1 - Volvo isn't made by NISSAN is it?? :thumbsup:

Guy 2 - You idiot, of cause not! But it looks like a Volvo.....maybe its rebadged. :D

Are there really that many simpletons out there???? :P hope they don't breed....lol

I got done for speeding back in May and when I got pulled over the cop asked me if my car was 'some sort of Volvo'.

I said it was an 850C :D

Edit: Goldzilla sticky this thread please :thumbsup:

Blind drunk in a dark alley I could understand the mistake.

Sounds odd saying it, but the volvo has much sleeker lines...*runs and hides.

Either most of these people are utter morons or they're being a bit sarcastic at your expense.

Funny huh?

At the family Christmas gathering, I was unloading the car when my uncle (who works for ProDrive) came up to me conversation as follows;

Uncle: Hi Cam, good to see you. Hey nice Volvo!

Me: (shaking hands) Merry Christmas.... but it is not a Volvo

Uncle: I never thought I would see the day when you would own a Volvo! There is no need to hide it, they are a good car. I know a Volvo when I see one. (walking around to the back of the car) No other car has a rear end like this!

Me: Well then, what does the badge say?

Uncle: It is a sad day when you have to re-badge to hide your Volvo shame.

Me: (guiding him to the driver's seat) Would I also re-program the on-board computer to display in Japanese?

Uncle: I see...

I could not help but refer to it as a Volvo for the rest of the day in elevated tones :banana:

its funny that everyone instantly thinks they look like a volvo. a couple of weeks ago i parked next to a mercedes wagon and i couldnt believe how similar it looked to my stag. everything about it was similar, the headlights looked very similar to my ser2 stag and so did the tail lights. even the roof racks! although the lines of the merc were much smoother and more rounded the similarities were obvious.

where as the stag looks like the mercs evil twin, the volvo looks like their retarded cousin with the only similarities being the roof racks.

My best "volvo moment"

The Stagea is actually on the GTRoc stand in what is probably the biggest single day car show in the uk called the bromley pageant. There are Nissans and Nissan flags everywhere. I am inbetween a 32 and a 34GTR

The bonnett is open and I am explaining to a sensible scooby driver that yes they are normally single turbo autos.

A guy with a staff and a vest with a Union Jack T shirt (you need to live in the uk to understand the type).

Comes up and shouts loudly to his mates ( who are only yards away )

Cor a twin turbo Volvo - I bet thats quick.

Actually, no.

Would have been a good effort though :blush:

My uncle never uses sarcasm (he would rather make fun of someone straight up or make an offensive joke at the persons expense).

That's the thing, if he was using sarcasm to rile me up, I would of had a laugh at my expense (if he was successful).

Mine was nowhere that good. I was having dinner with a couple of friends in Sydney and I showed one of them a picture of my car from the back right corner. He just said "Is that a Volvo?" and I said 'no' and explained the concept of the Stagea to him.

See, pretty boring really.

I was at a servo one day (as you commonly are in a Stag). When I payed the lady at the counter said "A wagon with a bodykit...that's unusual". I couldn't be bothered explaining that it's a stock imported twin-turbo Nissan...just too hard.

I bet everyone my Volvo joke will out do everyone here :D

I stopped at the lights one day right next to an old model XC70 and the driver winds down the window and asks me. "Wow, is that what the new model looks like?".

I just said yeah :D

So a Volvo driver/owner that thinks my M35 is a Volvo...
