CC Outtake: Volvo 122S “Amazon” – No Fuzzy Dice Hanging From Its Mirror

CC 290 001 1200

I’ve been seeing this Volvo 122S around town for several months, and I finally caught it taking a brief curbside rest. Now I’ve written up the 122 before, and there’s several still in town. But this one has something a bit different than the gag-me-if-I-see-one-more-pair-of-fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror.

Before we look inside, you might also want to note the rather eclectic random assemblage of other cars in this shot. It’s not wall-to-wall CUVs yet in Eugene, thankfully.

Enough suspense already. Not exactly warm and fuzzy.

It’s not an artfully done proper hangman’s noose, but it seems to have done the trick.

What more can I say, except that it’s a breath of fresh air to see a 122 in regular daily use, even with a noose.
