Panta rhei - everything flows! Things are changing - including the automotive life of bloggers. A Volvo pulls up and refreshes the Swedish fleet at Mark. Should we tell about it? Or is this not possible at all? Granted, it's not the first Volvo at Mark. A few years ago someone moved into his double garage. An XC60 that he really liked. At that time, after some consideration, we decided that the Volvo was not an issue.
But the circumstances were different.
In the background was the wish that something would come from Trollhättan. It was a dim light, more reverie than justified. But as is well known, hope only dies last, and something that could have inspired us was never completely excluded. Saabblog also had a number of supporters from the Saab world at the time. Workshops, parts dealers and companies like Orio. We felt committed to our partners and their business model. In the meantime, the rows have thinned out and the number of partners has decreased noticeably.
Loyalty can be a one-way street.
So now the Volvo Evolution? It may sound tough, but it is. The newcomer from Gothenburg is the update of Mark's automotive life in the present. An addition and rejuvenation to the fleet, which now consists of a Volvo and two Saabs. In principle, what happens to us has been what has long been a reality for many readers. Life moves, everything flows.
The Volvo Evolution in our fleet
How will it go on? Mark and his Volvo will be an issue. Its mobility, divided between the two brands from Sweden. Exciting! Everything else remains open. We have several options. In addition to many Saab films, the film archive also stores some historical strips from Volvo. Swedish automotive history, they have a good chance of being published. Two Volvo partners have signaled that they are providing us with test vehicles that we can write about. An interesting option. It is not certain whether this will become reality. Corona is currently speaking against it.
Sure, our further opening in addition to Saab, Koenigsegg and NEVS-Evergrande will not meet with applause from all readers. It doesn't have to either. Nobody is forced to follow our evolution and read something on the subject from Gothenburg. Nobody will find unwanted mail in their mailbox in the future. To appreciate the sensitivity of the readers, we have this NewsletterSystem changed. If you like, subscribe to all topics. Or restrict the selection according to his interests.
The Saab topic, however difficult it has become over the years, is not on the final list. There is no need to worry because the fleet situation, let's put it this way, is balanced. A new Volvo is now parked at Mark. OK then. And for me a new (old) Saab in the carport. The story goes on…
