You cannot prevent the annual migration of the classic Volvo. If you do it's morally indefensible as it's a protected species. I'll have you sued!


Try as I might to keep it on the south coast of engerland I have sadly had to accept the inevitable will happen. Sooner or later.
My last one ended up in Newcastle, which is basically Scotland isn’t it!?

There's a whole 70-odd mile long county between Newcastle and the border.

Top grammar tips!

Bought = purchased. Brought = relocated
Lose = misplace/opposite of win. Loose = your mum

Oi, that's my homeland you're disregarding ...

 

On another note, I'm disappointed I didn't win either roffle. I didn't even get a single number in the lottery out of two completely different sets of numbers... So I had 14 numbers out of a potential 59 and not a single match. Just my luck....

Many many congratulations to our winner, who I think was the Northernest entrant after Supernaut bowed out.
Looks like the southern softy Volvo is going to have to man up.

The Volvo in Surrey.

I don't think the bow bells are that loud guv.

The referendum is akin to going car hunting.
However you're not obliged to buy the car because you went for a look.
Buy doesn't mean buy if you sit down and realise the numbers look suicidal.

Volvos to Scotland. The Autoshite equivalent of coals to Newcastle. I reckon it's genetic as Scotland used to be part of the same land mass as Scandinavia.

 

It already has the right flag on the back so that must have been a sign of its destiny

^^^ It was this year's pre-Festival Of The Unexceptional breakfast rendezvous at Casa del Silver. David Fowler's much prettier 740 is up near the front there, behind the Maxi.
