V.I.S.I.T.: Volvo 850 ain't got no roof!

IMG_1303 (Custom) Ya know what we haven’t done in a long time? A good olde Vehicles I Saw In Traffic©®™ post! What we have here is a common Volvo 850 sedan, but this one had its roof chopped off. Being that I spotted the vehicle in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a four-season type of place whose residents seem to own only Volvos or Subarus, this owner made a custom top from some kind of a heavy duty, tarp-like, plastic. That makes this Volvo significantly more advanced than the other four-door convertible car ain’t got no roof we have seen. In order to retain proper visibility a plastic, almost (ALMOST!) OEM-like, rear window was included. Wow. Just wow. IMG_1304 (Custom) My buddy, Keith Barry, who lives near the owner of this car, informed that before its roof was fully chopped, the 850 suffered from a busted sunroof. While not an uncommon failure, cutting the whole roof off seems a bit insane, to put it politely. IMG_1305 (Custom) I would love to know what the person who made this top was thinking at the time of completion. Did he or she, in their brilliant mind, said “yes, it’s perfect, excellent job, this is exactly how I wanted it” to this? The shocking part is that it seems to work and I’d bet good money that it folds down, too. IMG_1302 (Custom)
