On the way to church this morning, I noticed a nice looking, black S60 R. That’s one of those cars that every Volvo fan knows. With a 300 hp T5 and AWD, it’s a lot of fun to drive especially with the 6 speed manual transmission. At the time, I was driving a 2008 Volvo S80 T6 AWD. With a 281 hp T6, 6-speed automatic and AWD, this car can also move pretty well. So, what would happen as we met at the entrance ramp to Rt. 44?
Let me just say that I’m not a speeder. Racing on the highway isn’t wise, but … you have to get up to highway speed on the entrance ramp, right? We made it to the ramp first. So, with my family hanging on for dear life, I jammed the accelerator to the floor and headed down the ramp. As we approached 60 mph, I looked back in the rear view mirror to see what the R was doing. Then I smiled. I knew he couldn’t resist the opportunity — he was right on my bumper! That earned a thumbs up from the entire family.
Fun. Fun. Fun.
