The overcast skies above Carlisle did not appear to limit the tremendous turnout of more than 250 Volvos. The in-flight entertainment for the trip from Virginia to Pennsylvania came courtesy of a 325hp S60 T6 R-Design coated in an eye-catching Rebel Blue.

Overall, as with previous Carlisle shows, Volvo's current model lineup was limited. The P2 Volvos were the dominate generation and numerous vintage Volvos mixed up the show field. Irv Gordon made an appearance with his nearly 3 million-mile 1800. The three day event is a great way to put the forum screen names to faces, explore project car challenges, and shared enthusiasm for the brand.

The Carlisle show is the East Coast event to attend and start the summer season. As a community, Volvo is as strong as ever. During the past year, Volvo revealed a significant facelift across all models, the introduction of the V60 for the U.S. setting the 2014 model year as one of the most exciting in a long time. We look forward to Carlisle 2014.
