Volvo Pre Runner??
Yep, it’s a Volvo, but it doesn’t look like a Toyota OR a pickup truck… which the PreRunner is…
Owner having fun with emblems, he found in a junkyard, I guess. 🙂
Odd owner. He drives this… and a Ferrari? 😉
It’s always interesting for me that, while Volvo owners should be the most safety conscious and pragmatic of car buyers, most of them are dreamers
After you shut it off, does it become a PostRunner?
Just learned this: A prerunner is evidently a vehicle used by racing teams to check out a dirt course before a race, so they won’t bang up the one used in the actual competition.
Another artifact of marketing vehicles as fantasies. “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”
If their other car really is a Ferrari, then the Prerunner badge on this potentially makes sense then.
If that were me, I’d break off the horizontal piece of the “r” and reattach a piece of it above to turn the r into an I.
Because it’s a grocery getter, right? Also, pie. Mmmmm.
Or get a little more creative and create a BeerRunner. 😉
should have posted this and Chris M.s’ comment on March 14th. preferably at 1:59.
we had red raspberry. yum.
This year was special because Pi Day was on 3/14/15 so you could’ve posted it at exactly 9:26:54 (rounded-up).
Hehehe. Me prefer cookie day.
I will just leave this here…
Just some fun.
Years ago when I had a 2000 Mazda MPV, VW sent me an information kit with a bunch of decals – not sure why. Anyway, I put “Launch Control” on one of the back side windows. Just to get people to wonder.
Gotta make a badge that says, “NONRunner.”
But if it doesn’t run, nobody will ever see it!
Volvo Prerunner seems like its having idenity issues. Heres another car that just does not know where its rightful place to make it worse it comes from the factory this like that
I still cannot fathom what sort of weird international tie-up causes a Hyundai to be badged as a Dodge, let alone with the stylized “H” logos still attached!
Maybe the logo thing is similar to how Olds Aleros sold in Europe as Chevy Aleros still had the late Oldsmobile rocket logos, since no other Oldsmobile was sold in Europe and that logo therefore didn’t mean anything.
What a weird story on that one! That definitely counts as a weird international tie-up in my book!
I saw these in Manzanillo Mexico last fall. There were a number of less familiar cars (and vans) — including some Ford and Chevy sub-compact car based utes that I liked. (Unfortunately my pictures were so-so.) But this D’undai caused a serious double-take.
Hyundodge? Hopefully not a Dodgedai.
Maybe the Volvo owner uses it to “prerun” the roads and map the curves so he/she can come back and make a speed run with the Ferrari, as well as map out speed traps. Probably not.
I like you’re thinking!
I have a feeling that his “Ferrari” would just be a Fiero with a body kit.
I’m almost of the mind to remove ALL the badges from my Versa and turn it into ‘generic white car’.
Love, your Rush reference. You have good taste in music… One of my all time favorites.
*cough* Shakespeare *cough*
My favorite plate frame I’ve seen said “My other car is a piece of sh*t too” !
Mike, I’m more a music fan than a bookworm. 😉
That bit sounds a lot better put to music… It is also a line in Rush’s song “Limelight”.
