Just picked up my 2013 C70 Inscription Volvo in LA and drove it back home to Missoula, Montana. Bought it via the Volvo Expat Program; my wife and initially picked it up at the factory in Sweden and spent 2 weeks touring Eastern Europe (Copenhagen, Berlin, Prague, Budapest, Vienna and Munich) before dropping it off for shipment back to LA. Fantastic adventure both in Europe and traveling up the west coast on highway 101 (1).

This will be our 6th Volvo ('82 245GL, '79 264GL, 2003 V70T5 (now my son's car), 2005 S40, 2012 XC70T6 (wife's car) and now C70 T5polestar (my toy)).

Most of my time has been overseas and now that we're retired and back in the 'states' thought it would be a good time to join the club!

Welcome to the Forum, Jeff.

Montana - warm, ain't it?!

Retired - me, too (land surveyor - you?).

Since my know-it-all status on Volvo is pre-fuel injection, is your C70 rag or hard top?

Do you plan to put a hitch on this car? Good luck.

My wife and I have missed our annual trip to Hamilton for the single-engine flyover to the now-closed Selway Lodge in Idaho. Those were the good old days.

Polestar C70 - we will need pics in the Gallery and a write-up on all those performance goodies.

Thanks.
