2016 Volvo XC90 Review | 2016 Volvo XC90 Test Drive | Chicago News --------------------- Luxury SUV’s are everywhere. Porsche, Audi, and BMW all have SUV models currently on the market. But those automakers have their work cut out for them if they plan on besting the 2016 Volvo XC90. The XC90 is everything you expect from a Volvo, and then some. It has made some very positive changes to help the car stand out from the monotony of the road. The first thing you notice from a styling standpoint is the sleek, futuristic headlights that really set the feel for the entire car. It has the rounded look many SUVs on the roads today have, but it manages to still appear muscular and truck-like (its large tires and 20-inch wheels certainly help in this aspect). The interior is all Volvo, but as members of Spinal Tap would say, it is turned up to 11. The seats are just as comfortable as you would expect, but in the XC90 just about every part of them can be adjusted for more possible comfort combinations than a game of chess has outcomes. The seats are also heated and cooled, meaning there is not a driver alive that won’t be able to find a comfortable driving position in the XC90.

The Volvo Amazon is a mid-size car manufactured by Volvo Cars from 1956 to 1970 and introduced in the USA as the 122S at the New York International Auto Show in April 1959. The Amazon shared both the wheelbase from its predecessor, the PV, as well as its tall posture and high H-point seating — while offering three model configurations: 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan and wagon. In 1959 Volvo provided front seat belts as standard equipment on all the cars, including the export models, becoming the world's first manufacturer to take this step — later becoming the first car featuring three-point seat belts. When introduced, the car was called the Amason (with an 's'), which derives from the fierce female warriors of Greek mythology, the Amazons. Kreidler, German manufacturer of motorcycles had already registered the name, and the two companies agreed Volvo could only use the name domestically (i.e., within Sweden), modifying the spelling to Amazon. Subsequently, Volvo began its tri-digit nomenclature and the line became known as the 120 Series. The Amazon was originally manufactured at Volvo's Lundby plant in Gothenburg and subsequently at the company's Torslandaverken, which began operating in 1964. By the end of production, 234,653 four-door models, 359,917 two-door models and 73,220 station wagons had been produced, 60% of them for export — for a total of 667,791 vehicles.
The Volvo Rescue Episode 8 - 1967 Volvo Amazon 122s Wagon
We visit the orphanage one more time to rescue some more 122s then go home and start taking Shelby 2.0 apart. Thankfully there isn't a lot of rust and body damage is minimal. This should be another fun one year restoration, so keep watching!
