For the Volvo Enthusiast

The largest parade of Volvo cars was documented by the Guinness Book of World Records on September 12, 2010 in Poland.  The parade included 570 Volvo cars and was organized by the Volvo Forum and Auto Boss in Katowice, Poland.   Independent witnesses and four clickers were used to count the number of cars.  Rumor has it that our fellow Volvo enthusiasts across the pond are considering another record attempt.

It is only fitting that North American Volvo enthusiasts began considering setting a record of their own on Facebook.   Volvo’s sprawling factory campus outside of Charleston, South Carolina appears to be the enthusiasts’ leading location for the record attempt.  I attended the press launch of the all-new S60 at the new plant and I believe the long road into the plant as well as the paved area surrounding the plant could offer sufficient space as well as an opportunity for Volvo to showcase its latest facility.   Combine the location with an enthusiastic group of factory employees and this could be a record shattering event.

For comparison, Guinness has the following parade records*:

The largest parade of Nissan cars is 250 and was achieved by Trophy Nissan (USA) in Mesquite, Texas, USA, on 7 May 2017.

The largest parade of Toyota cars consists of 742 vehicles and was achieved by Distribuidora Toyota S.A.S. (Colombia), in Tocancipá, Colombia, on 23 September 2017

The largest parade of Ford cars is 1,527 and was organized by Moto-Pfohe BG (Bulgaria), in Sofia, Bulgaria, on 4 June 2016.

To help Volvo enthusiasts organize, I have created the following subForum dedicated to event planning.  Click Here
