the beer sales go up when the volvo meet happens, plus burrito sales, + motel 6 sales.

And not to mention the Harbor freight gets absolutely ravaged from all the tools needed for roadside repairs.

Why arent we making a compelling case to the city?!?

food is considered essential, where old Volvo cars are not....

It's more than that. It's a delectable feast of tubic potted meats, cooked to perfection by the master himself.

This.

Of course the longer this takes the more time I have to get a Volvo running.

Any potential news on getting this meet going? I got to go in 2018 and 2019 (2018 I was still going to school at the UC and it was such a fun weekend). Definitely missing it. But on the other hand - my 142 is going to be out of commission until mid-June... excuses starting already

We've actually got a call going this evening to see where things are stacking up. We're just barely starting to see things open up here finally, most counties dropped into the first of the less restrictive tiers, so we'll have to see how the trend goes.

Well, you're more than welcome to come join us! except montage is closed in portland, so there's no more reason to ever go back.

I'll be vaccinated well before July, if that makes a case for a Summer Davis...

Awesome! Yeah, Marin and SF counties dropped into orange tier, so I think it's only a matter of time.

Looking forward to this when it materializes. I've still never made the Davis meet in the 11 years of owning a Volvo AND living in California. Was really looking forward to the 2020 show after finishing up my car in late 2019.

Well guys, we're working on a slightly different plan for 2021, with a full return of Davis in '22. Given things are still pretty up in the air where we'll be, we're going to be cautious.

That said, we're looking at something in the fall, working on dates and details now, stay tuned. We're trying to coordinate with several other things at the same time, to make it a fun weekend.
