The C70 is Volvo’s four-seat convertible coupe that returned to the lineup for 2006 with a new folding metal hardtop. The C70 originally debuted for the 1998 model year as a fixed-top coupe and a soft-top convertible, and began a new model-naming convention for Volvo: C denotes coupe, while 70 represents the car's relative position in the company's product line. The C70 coupe was dropped in 2003 and the C70 convertible continued for the 2004 model year before taking a hiatus in 2005.

Volkswagen Tiguan

In internet appears first photo of a front part restyling Volkswagen Tiguan which will appear on sale in the beginning of next year. Alas, quality of this picture leaves much to be desired, however, and on it is possible to understand, how will look updated Tiguan (in a photo above new Tiguan, and below nowadays exhausted).

Predictably, the car will receive "muzzle" in new corporate style Volkswagen (the same design of a front part already have Golf, Polo and Transporter). What changes will occur in technical part Tiguan, yet is not informed. Most likely, the car will keep a present ruler of engines though, some motors and can receive minor alterations.

Denzel Washington at Brooks Army Medical Center - A true American and friend to all in uniform!

Don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas (BAMC) the other day. This is where soldiers who have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the United States, especially burn victims.

There are some buildings, there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a hotel where the soldiers' families can stay for little or no charge while their soldier is staying in the hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled most of the time.

While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build. He took his checkbook out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot.

The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear this story and want to get the word out to the American public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it.

The question is, why do Brad Pitt, Madonna, Tom Cruise and other Hollywood fluff make front page news with their ridiculous antics and Denzel Washington's Patriotism doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper except the local newspaper in San Antonio.
