the port of which doesn’t seem to be much to look at from high on the ship.
Town is almost 10 km down the road. Which would leave us only with an industrial port except the Volvo Factory is here.. and more importantly – the Volvo Museum. Aside from the usual “we are smart, great and responsible” lines in the movie it was interesting to realize exactly how many lines are actually under the Volvo name. The cars have been around for a long time. And the trucks – not just the little ones but the over the road haulers (Volvo, Mack, and Renault are theirs), plus the heavy duty construction vehicles (graders, plows, articulated haulers, and a dozen more), buses (bought out UK Leland a while back – so double deckers), Maritime engines (Penta) and jet engines (see Swedish fighter below).
so just pictures:
First – the official museum sign
then the cars
followed by trucks
then the really cool engines
sleek lines –
toys are not just for kids (more than 200,000 blocks on a real chassis and frame)
and finally: cheesecake?
