Nice Car Looks Like a Volvo

Ok the headlights may be a bit square. But I don't drive around with them on all the time,there's no light on the dash to tell me my seatbelts not on or there's a biker overthere and I need to knock him off or do i pull a caravan (ok I do but thats what the m**d*o's for ) It looks like an Alfa Romeo 155

Ian, what Volvo are you comparing it to? Because everytime I hear Volvo I think 440,

Or the new batch that look alright...

Either way, I see no similarities between ANY Alfa to ANY Volvo EVER made.

Who are these people you mention Ian?!

Ditch them, ditch them like you would a day old fish that's been left out on the side too long!

Bad influences the lot of them I say!

Hmm, it is possible, they are gorgeous cars

I'm honestly trying to see the connection between the 2 different cars but can't come up with anything.

How does you 155 go then mate? Are you enjoying it?

Re: Nice Car Looks Like a Volvo

if i'm going to be a *****, i'd say the 155 reminds me a bit of the Proton Saga saloon from 1989.

But i'm not a *****, so i won't... ;-)
