Ummm, yes I do recall that Volvo.  If there were
a version of the SPCA that applied to cars instead
of animals, they would have insisted you euthanize
that poor beast.  However, you may remember the tired 
old pickup that I was still flogging when you and I
first made a local sushi run.

I am told by a friend that knows from Russian cars
that the Italians taught the commies how to build
cars.  So a modern Russian-built car is analogous
to a 1970s lower end Fiat, but more poorly built.

We all got that line.  {8-]  Funny you should mention 
never getting the lyrics, since it started out:

Jeremiah was a bullfrog
Was a good friend of mine,
But I helped him drink his wine...
