What do you think it would take to kill a Volvo 850? I'll tell you, it takes a lot! This guy decided to put it one through a series of test and the car just kept running!

My wife can killed our v70 with one hit. she can kill anything though. Our two year old kitchen she already broke the microwave, twice the cook top, and something off the dishwasher that now sounds like it is as loud as a drive through car wash.

You should buy your dear wife better quality goods, they're clearly inferior if they keep on breaking like that

Lyria my dear,





TheVolvois the ultimate expression of motoring. There is no "better quality", I own 2 of them. My slightly tweaked C70 is like a lounge bar with a turbo charger, leather everything, sooooooo comfortable and will still pull 250km/h.





With a 14 speaker bose stereo listening to my tunes.








Whilst i am somewhat impressed chicks don't dig it. I don't get that bit, they don't like my Johnny Cash either.
