Hi Brett-

I don't think I've talked to you before, but I know who owns the Volvos
you see in the Boston area.  I read recently in Automotive Fleet
Magazine that Volvo Cars USA just landed its biggest fleet deal ever. 
The company is a executive transportation outfit in Boston.  They are a
limo service for high-ranking execs of companies that don't have their
own limos.  I'll find out who it is and let you know.  I just happen to
be in the auto fleet field.  I work for an auction company that
specializes in selling fleet cars to the public.

Take care-
