Time Magazine Person of the Year Ben Bernake has a Ford Focus

From page 6 of the full story:

..."He didn't study economics to get rich — he and his wife still share a Ford Focus that's not quite paid off"...

Lost Focus

The final season 6 of Lost is starting in a few months. It should be awesome. This guy looks like he's getting shot loading his groceries on the show.

Roadflow is changing to Ford Focus stuff!

There are a few reasons for this. But first let me state that all existing Volvo posts, labels, and links will remain. Roadflow gets tons of hits for everything from OBD-II to Volvo movie info. Rest assured these will all remain here.

I've been in the market for a new car for a while. I wanted something small, fun, fuel efficient, and able to carry a little bit of cargo. The C30 was a top candidate. However, upon further inspection and research. I decide it was too expensive and the cargo area was inadequate.

So, despite being a Volvo enthusiast and owner of many Volvo's through the years, I sought out an alternative. The Honda Jazz (Fit) was looking to be a good choice. But, the Ford Focus won. I am super happy. The car is everything I want. Fun to drive, great cargo area, fuel-efficient, and more than half the price of a C30!

It's been a lot of fun to write about Volvos over the years and I'm looking forward to doing the same for the Ford Focus.

The Perfect Storm Volvo 145

I think The Perfect Storm is an overrated movie. There's a scene with a Volvo 145 in it though.

Team America V70

If the V70 model in the movie Team America still exists, then it might be a collectors item. I wonder what happened to all the items from the movie?

Tenured Professor Volvo Beater

Wired did an article a while back called "Impress for Less With These 5 Rides". In the Volvo section there's a link to the Roadflow medallions posts.

Only the Lonely 240

John Candy was great. One of his more obscure movies and non-comedies was Only the Lonely. There's a 240 passing by in one scene.

Kate's S40 on Lost

Lost is a great TV show. You need to watch it from the beginning though. Most people who watch a one off episode don't like it. It can be confusing enough for those that have seen them all in order. The character Kate has a Volvo. I think this is it here:
