Flickr Search

I just searched Flickr for Volvo-driving yuppie scum and got this response:

"Would you like to try a search for pond, water, graffiti, green or algae instead?"

I laughed, partly because the drivers of green Volvos are the most annoying of all.

So true. The forest green Volvo wagon was far and above the vehicle of choice for the snob independent school families in the 70's! Esp. the Brit-wannabee ones. It was the car that quietly whispered "We're better than you."

Oh, how I wished my family would buy a Volvo.

Instead, my father drove a white 1965 Dodge Coronet convertible . . . as long as it wasn't raining, he insisted on riding with the top down, even in winter, with CBC Classical playing top volume . . . as we drove up to the school, heads would turn, fingers would point, the ridicule became a regular part of my school mornings.

Again, I repeat . . oh, how I wished my family would by a Volvo. Viva la yuppie scum!

It would have been hard to imagine or appreciate it then, but today you have a much better story to tell, and no doubt much stronger memories of those commutes to school with Daddy, than do any of those little yuppie kids!

If you'd kept it, that car would have held its value better than the Volvo wagon, too. With his eye for aesthetics, the art & architecture professor knew what he was doing!
