02/07/2005 Archived Entry: "Volvo will send somebody into space!"
"THE ONLY V8 POWERFUL ENOUGH TO SEND YOU TO SPACE." Volvo is sponsoring a contest -- and the winner will leave Earth on a Virgin Galactic commercial flight.
You have to give address-and-phone type info, be at least 21 years old, and (as they so charmingly put it), a "legal resident of the U.S. or District of Columbia." (I always knew DC wasn't actually part of the USA.). You also have to check off some, like really, really, really lame questions to which the answer is always (I don't think I'm helping anyone cheat too badly here) "The New Volvo XC90 V8."
Good luck. Star Trek fans will enjoy the URL even if they don't win the contest. (And thanks S.S. for the info.)
