So apparently with Volvo being the team's official car and all, they decide to make a special edition for the Red Sox. The C30 two door hatchback is the model they've selected in Passion Red. The sticker price? $29,465.00. Not bad eh? Kicker is they are only making 107 of them. Not sure what the 107 number signifies but they are going to sell 106 of them beginning March 12th at New England Volver dealerships. Number 107 will be held for a fund-raising charity event for the Red Sox Foundation. Out of the Boston Globe is a description of the car:

"The special edition Volvo C30 has customized outside molding and trim, plus fog lights, heated front seats, a blue-face instrument cluster, leather-wrapped steering wheel with aluminum inlays, sport pedals, sport shifter, soft load cover, cruise control, and a Dynaudio sound system with Sirius satellite radio. It also has a small Red Sox logo badge on each front fender, special floor mats embossed with a Sox "B," and a large transparent Sox logo decal in the rear window.
The car is powered by a turbocharged T5 5-cylinder engine that produces 227-horsepower and 236 lb.-ft. of torque. A five-speed automatic Geartronic transmission is standard."

I have a few friends up there who WOULD LOVE THIS....EVEN IF THEY DON'T DRIVE.

Tex, I can see Kelly parking this in her driveway and just standing beside it, taking pictures!

Hope you get some rest this weekend.

Tex said...

I'm going to the allergy Dr tomorrow then heading to work. I'm going to work out, clean house, and sleep. I would LOVE to have this car myself. VRrrrrmmmm Vrroooommmmm

Ted D said...

Sounds like a plan.

How's the vertigo?

Tex said...

i did those manuevers the Doc said to do...and vertigo is gone :)

Ted D said...


No more vertigo!

Good for you, Tex.

HorshamScouse said...

Want too!
My V40 Volvo wagon was the best car I've ever had. Can't afford one now.
Glad your vertigo's gone away, Tex.

Tex: I think the 107 represents the number of wins last year by the Sox.

And, Ted, Kelly would have to keep it parked in her driveway - she doesn't drive!

Ted D said...

LOL Beth! I knew she didn't drive, and I figured Tex was referencing her or Cyn one.

Tex, you have a new pet I see.

Sure you don't want Rakes to come visit Auntie Tex for the summer instead?

Tex said...

send Rakes to me for a month. I aint skeeeeeereed. I raised a boy who walked home from school at age 6 one mile and out of his pockets came one dead bird, a broke knife, among other items. Who told the Doc when asked why he put a rock in his ear "cos my mom was yelling at me". Who decided not to wait his turn for the bathroom and peed outside. Who replaced his "t's" with "f's" when saying firetruck.

besides I have cells at my job :)

THAT is hilarious!!!!

You have cells?

I'm jealous. ;)

Frire Tuck? Tire Fruck?
I'm confused.:)

I like the new layout. Hopefully you got some rest this weekend.

Nice new look to your interweb home!
