Default Carlisle Volvo Meet - 5/20-22/2016

Hey all!

Another year has passed and it's only a little over 2 months away!
Click here for passes and the like: http://store.carlisleevents.com/Sear...lts.asp?Cat=23

Now, I know a lot of you are disappointed because the Performance and Style crew will be among us, but I know as long as we have eachother I don't think it'll change a thing. Besides, we might even have some good entertainment to look upon

Who's in?? Matt (MrAshDarksideTM) and I will be hosting a caravan meet up in Ohio again this year. Come by Thursday evening. I'm REALLY excited. Hopefully this year I don't fall into Matt's bmx back wheel again. That left a nasty mark on my leg due to my clumsiness!

Still meeting for lunch as the yearly tradition goes??

EDIT: Too soon? Haha. Getting hyped about it. Please don't let me be the only one!

If I didn't have Ford Nationals two weeks later, I'd be in for sure. Don't take this down, the hype will come soon I'm sure.

Maybe. It looks like they upped the prices again, plus perf & style addition driving away some of the people who I usually really look forward to seeing. So I'm kind of on the fence, but I don't want to end up not seeing the people who are going until potentially fall.

I drive almost 500 miles each way for this event, and never had the wherewithal to pre-register, so the price difference is minimal for me. Also, this is the first year in...holy crap...3?4? Years that I've been able to actually take a Volvo to it, so I'm definitely going. It'll be a bit of an unknown, I predict less classics and more tuners, so I'll probably take the 240 or V70 rather than the amazon.

I definitely want to meet at the Harrisburg Perkins for lunch and convoy from there as that's one of the funnest parts. Driving in convoy (at least with the Philly crew back in the day) makes the event so much more fun, at least for someone coming as far as I do. Where does the Ohio group hit 81?

We head out and meet at the Perkins in Harrisburg like you said and then head back with the group to Carlisle. We missed em all last year but we'll be sure to get there in time this year!

I'm in! I've been to Carlisle for the swap meet and GM but never imports and I've owned my 245 for 4 years now, given it's a beat up DD.

Keep us updated on details and a possible meet up. Is there plans on the Philly crew driving in, who heads that up? My parents live in Chester County and I'll probably leave from there.

Matt just bought ours. They did increase the price a little. Usually there are a few caravan threads that pop up a couple of weeks beforehand. I think the caravan from Matt's house will just be two, but thats ok!!

Start making the caravan threads. Might take time to get them organized.

Perkins may not be happening. The person who takes charge of that isn't going so I shall meet up with you all at Carlisle

Pete, who usually organizes the philly convoy, isn't going, but he doesn't necessarily organize the Perkins meet up, everyone just shows up there, just how it is. Usually 12-1:30-2ish, on friday until there's a solid number of people that want to get to the campground.

Oh no D: How come?
One of our friends I think is coming volvo-less. We'll see though

There's a LOT of work to do to boxxy before Carlisle. Hoping we can just do the wires but we may have take the whole engine off. Matt's not ecstatic about it, but I take it as a great learning experience (for me - he's done it before)

If all else fails y'all can just take the Sonic, I've been to Carlisle 2 years in a row with a dodge. Doesn't feel great but it's better than not seeing everyone.

Got my windshield sticker yesterday.

I was planning on bringing my '69 145, but I think I may go for comfort and take something a little more boring like my '91 245SE or my '01 v70.

My 242 has zero interior in it at the moment. I thought about entering the R but decided against it on account that I'm parts hunting ( along with others coming with me ) and that isn't something I want to be hauling parts in. So I'll be in the good old 77 f250.

Looking like Saturday should be fine. Friday and Sunday, not so much.
