540 vs Volvo V70 R

I had been waiting in line for 15 minutes on Brock Road, to turn left onto the ramp to 401 East. Some rude loser cuts in front of me when I get to the 3rd car in line. It's a Volvo V70 R wagon, supposed to have 300HP...

V70 R

So the loser is sitting in front of me, and I can tell he's looking in the mirror. He could be looking at all the windsurf crap on my roof, but I give him the finger anyway. He waves back arrogantly. When we get to go, the puffs of black smoke indicate that he is on it. I floor the 540 and catch up quickly, I have to back off...more puffs of black smoke - gear changes? I'm in 3rd at about 4000rpm now (about 130?) and the Volvo changes lanes. The 401 is wide open. I stay in the accelereation lane and open it up. The Volvo driver wants to squeeze me in, but the 300 Swedish horses aren't enough for 282 German ones....see yah!!

He passes me at mach 3 after I slow down set the cruise control for 125kph. This guys is a loser driver so I pass him again and again as he has difficulty maintaining a constant speed. duhhhhhh

Not very often. It's not very effective. But I wanted to let this guy know I am displeased with his selfish manouvre. I knew it'd bother him too, since he would still have to sit in traffic for a few more minutes wondering if the apparently cool, finger saluting, Chinese (wind)surfer dude behind was a crazy MoFo or not.

Sure enough, he attempted to protect his family (later, I looked over to see that the passengers were a woman, wife? and teenage boy,son?) by attempting to put distance between himself and me. Lucky for him, a finger gesture is the extent of my road rage.

No one in a Volvo can be a looser. Buying a Volvo automatically makes you a winner.

I thought buying a Volvo made you a wiener? A tree-huggin', hippy wiener.

Nothing wrong with hugging trees. Somebody's gotta do it.

Imagine, I was considering a Volvo wagon before I bought the 540!

Funny thing. I had the same thought. Glad I bought the 540i.

I'm not a fan of the V70R, but the S60R is pretty friggin' hot.



I love the pumpkin interior.
