The Good Ole South – Hunter’s General Store

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Jun 12, 2012 in 1999 Volvo V70

Been doing a lot of traveling lately and it’s always a real treat to travel down South and go through the historic part of the town.  Seeing the buildings that have been around for hundreds of years reminds me of the way it used to be.  I know I’m just a foreigner, but I am a Southerner at heart.  I remember when gas in South Carolina used to be 55 cents a gallon and when the stations were American owned and family operated.

Check out other historic sites in Pendleton, South Carolina area at: www.pendletondistrict.org

This 1850 general store serves as the headquarters for the Pendleton District Commission, a regional tourism promotion and historical services organization for Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties. The building is currently undergoing restoration, but may be opened by appointment for groups. Mailing address is 125 E. Queen Street, P.O. Box 565, Pendleton, SC 29670. The Pendleton District Commission is open M-F 9am-4:30 pm. Closed holidays.

Eni Meeny Miny Mo – Window Tinting on the Go

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Jun 1, 2012 in 1999 Volvo V70

With always being on the Go, and having my backside stuffed with luggage it has been awkward when people can see in and look at my junk in the trunk. So I’m in a predicament. Who should I chose to tint my ride?

1. Myself
2. Glass Act (with great reviews)
3. Ronnie’s Window Tinting

Well I was thinking for about $50 buck I could order some window tinting off eBay and I could do the job myself. Then I thought to myself, “self, what do I know about window tinting?” I would probably leave a whole bunch of bubbles in the tint and I would in the end have to go pay somebody to do it anyways and be out those $50 bucks.

Then after getting my step-brother’s Auto Glass Honda CRX 1989 Glass repaired at D-H Top-Auto Glass on Jones Street in Cleveland TN we met the owner and son of Glass Act also on Jones Street right next door. He stands behind all of his work with a life-time guarantee. He gave us a quote of $150 for as dark as we wanted the back of the Volvo Wagon and including the Limo Tint if we wanted.

So I just wanted to check around on the price and got a quote from Ronnie’s Window Tinting on 3rd Street in Cleveland TN. They gave me a quote of $135 but that I would have to pay $50 extra for the Limo Tint. I then told them I found a coupon online and when presenting it to them they said that this was not there coupon even though it was their business name and address. Hum. Interesting.

So who do I choose …. ? Any suggestions. If you read this post and want to give me a better deal I will give you my bussiness. Thanks.

The Big 250

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Mar 3, 2010 in 1993 Volvo 940


Today I turned the big 250.  250,000 miles that is.  Can you believe it?  I feel as young as I did the day I came off the assembly line.  Well I guess not that young, but as young as one can with so many miles.  And I’m still purring like a little kitten.  I am very fortunate because with these miles have gone many places.  I’ve been everywhere man.  I’ve been to California man.  Been to Mississippi, to Florida, to Washington, to Chicago.  I’ve been stuck in the great 2009 blizzard of South Dakota, seen the Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam, the Space Needle and Vegas Baby just to mention a few.   I am looking forward to many more to come.
