8th Annual Volvo Carlsen Car Show

Hey Volvo owners, my name is Chris and I’ll be heading up the 8th annual Volvo Carlsen Car Show web hype! I wanted to start off by seeing how many of you Sweedspeeders live here in the bay area, or close enough to the bay area that you’d like to come and show off your cars this year?<p>Some general info for now is that the show will be held August 8th 2009 at the Carlsen Dealership in Palo Alto California, which gives us all a couple of months to clean up, trick out, and perfect our Swedish machines for the big day when we display them for all our fellow bay area Volvo enthusiasts to look over in awe. There will be all types of Volvos new and old, stock and heavily moded. The day typically starts around 7am and goes till about 2pm, after which a drive is usually organized. There will be a judging in which cars will be entered to be judged on many different aspects, such as best stock car, best moded car and best vintage car, exc. We also have a small breakfast buffet and later we have a barbeque for everyone!<p>There will be a few special surprises as well this year that we are working on and very excited about. I can’t divulge any of them yet, but I’ll just say ones very fast, ones built for heavy duty use, and the others are classic <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I hope you all can come and enjoy a full day of Volvo enthusiasm and comradery with us. Past years have been a blast and we hope to make this one tremendous with your participation!<p>Post here if you live in the area and would like to be kept up to date on this event. I have the official sign up form as well and can help you register your car for this years show if you already know your going to make it.<p>As the weeks pass, I’ll be updating the event thread with info about the day, and info about other Volvo owners of note that sign up to go.<p>Hope to here from you ladies and gentlemen soon!<p><BR><BR>

Re: 9th Annual Volvo Carlsen Car Show (Foreveradvanced)

Alrighty folks, its a been a little bit since I posted an update. The Car show is looking good, plenty of fellow Volvo owners are jumping on the bandwagon earlier this year and we couldn't be more excited about it!<p>The first chunk of news that we've got, is that we've nailed down something for all of our military supporters as we've got two C303's Rolling out to be at the Car Show this year!<p>If you've never seen one of these beasts they are a site to see. Out of the 8,000 produced, two are headed to are show!<p>This is just one of the many exciting things going on this year at the 9th annual Volvo Carlsen Car Show. Keep coming back and checking on the updates!<p>As always, if your interested in getting sign-up info early to enter your car, then please let me know.<p> Thanks,<br> Chris<BR><BR>

I'll be driving down with my family (My dad and I in our R's, My Mom in her C70, and my brother in his S70),. I can't schedule anything either as I'll be heading out right after work to go to the show (I work night shifts), however, if you'd like to put yourself out there as a coordinator for a caravan in, I'm sure people interested will jump in and say so. <p>The event itself is decently sized, it wouldn't be unlikely that while your driving down, you don't run across other Volvos headed there, and if so, you've got a fast car, catch em and start a caravan <br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>-Chris

Re: (Foreveradvanced)

Attended the annual Carlsen Volvo meet last weekend - had a pretty good time. Overall, there were over 80 volvos there, including a lot of Rs and some cool P1800s. Unfortunately, they put Rs up on the roof lot, which resulted in massive exhaust scraping at the top of the ramp <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> They should definitely change that next year, as most Rs have exhaust, sport kits, and/or are lowered. Anyways, here are a few pics my gf took while there. <p>There's a lot more she's posted to this website: <A HREF="http://www.photoreflect.com/pr3/ThumbAccess.aspx?e=5049880" TARGET="_blank">http://www.photoreflect.com/pr...49880</A><br>Password = swedespeed<p>Sorry about the watermarks, she's pretty stingy with her pics.<p><IMG SRC="http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l27/jdog858/untitled.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br><IMG SRC="http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l27/jdog858/untitled1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>
