[1/29 Update: Sorry, progressives. We've sold the car to a nice couple with two kids who just moved here from Australia. I got to try out my "G'day mate" accent, which they were kind enough not to laugh at.]
If you’re a progressive and you’re not driving a Volvo, this bumper sticker is going to look ridiculous on your car. But don’t worry. I’ve got a solution for you.
Yes, now that we’ve gone beyond Volvoness into Highlander Hybridosity, we’re able to pass on our ’99 V70 XC AWD wagon to someone else who values European craftsmanship, safety, all-weather performance, and reliability. (Plus, who has $12,000 or so they can hand over to us).
Volvos are the most Democratic cars, as Kari Chisholm pointed out in a Blue Oregon post. Kari, a noted Oregon progressive, drives an old Volvo himself. So if you read this, Kari, here’s a chance to update your Democratic credentials.
Readers of this blog will get $100 off the asking price. Just tell me that Brian sent you, and I’ll inform myself that you’re entitled to the discount. Contact info is on the Cars.com ad.
If you’re a conservative, this is still the car for you. Imagine how satisfying it will be to see the expressions on those liberal sushi-eating, latte-drinking, Volvo-driving faces when they pull up behind you and see a “Bush-Cheney Forever!” sticker on the bumper of your own right-wing Volvo.
So give me a call, neo-cons. If your cashiers check is for real, we’ve got a deal.
