mtd240: I suspect "the wives" have a super-secret forum to discuss whether or not they will let us buy Volvo parts.

"
Rain or Shine, 4141 Dollarton Highway, North Vancouver, B.C. 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Bring a picnic lunch! No BBQ this year! Shine up the Volvo and bring the family.
There will be lots of raffle prizes. There will be dash plaques and trophies for the Peoples Choice, Runner Up & Modified."

If we want to meet up somewhere before that's on the way, maybe burble our way through the cassiar tunnel, like last time. Didn't we meet at your work last time AJ?

I've never managed to make it to this, so this could be the year. I could either be Volvo compliant in the slightly shabby V70, or hope that the Peugeot is brick-ish enough that nobody notices. Besides, the non-diesel versions did have Volvo content via the PRV V6.

I think you'd really enjoy it. Lots of interesting folks there. Folks not of the zip-tie brigade, but still interesting.

Really looking fwd to this. Never been to a Volvo show b4. Nor do I currently own one. I keep flirting with the idea of selling my e30 for a nifty, 242GT or something equally cool.

Been to a few BMW meets which were ok. I find most BMW folk are too pretentious to approach. Volvo folk, not so much. They tend to be a little weird (like myself), but overall much nicer people

I have a set of five but you have to buy the wheels and tool as well. You could always use more rimps, right?

Is there a Timmie's somewhere central-ish, not far off the highway we can use as a Meetup point? Hit it for around 8:30, coffee up, then burble our way over? Thoughts?

Well, not to be a downer, but apparently I won't be making it now. My replacement motor just blew on my way in to work, just now. I'm out. Anyone want a '70 144...
