VATICAN CITY — Volvo Cars, hoping to fill the void left now that Pope Benedict XVI has sold his beloved Volkswagen Golf, has presented His Holiness with a new XC90 utility vehicle.
The Swedish Popemobile was delivered at the Vatican last week. It is dark blue with a light interior. Under the hood is a Yamaha V8.
Pascal Bellemans, president of Volvo Auto Italia, said, "We are absolutely happy and proud of the opportunity we had to give a car to the Pope. Safety has always been a no-compromise must for Volvo; no doubt, our strong commitment to safeguard lives could not get a higher and more touching recognition."
To which we say: Amen.
What this means to you: If it's good enough for the Pope...
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
