Re: (chinaonnitrous1)

Now that's an incentive, lol! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> It says they're going to be doing dent removal, is it free at the meet? The dealer's contracted body guy charges $150 per panel but always gives me a pretty good break. But if they're doing it for free or even for cheap I might go just for that, haha! The neighbor's boys just put a nasty ding in my driver's side quarter panel with their scooter. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

They'll do up to 3 dings per panel for that price. But they've never charged me that much. It mostly depends on how hard the panel is to remove and how hard the ding is to get to and repair. In fact the lowest they've charged me was $90 and the most was $130, even for 3 dings total that were on 2 different panels, not bad at all. Still, I hate having to fork out the cash to get those things fixed.<BR><BR>

I told Kirb I couldn't make it but I honestly admit that I still want too. I'd like to finally meet some of you guys in person and check out your Volvos. Maybe I can pull some strings and work something out. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> The San Jose Gran Prix is this weekend too..... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

Re: (Ubergeek)

Great pics man! It looks like a lot of effort was made to make it a nice meet but the turnout was a little scarce, sadly. I really wanted to go. Kudos to all the people that made it out with their families. Looked like a great day and in a beautiful place! Why is the Volvo bug struggling in Cali? I am seeing them more and more everyday. In any case, which one is you and which one is Kirb? Oh, and where was KillerB? jk. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> (that guy is everywhere) Your car would have been a big hit!<BR><BR>

Re: (Xcelerate)

I am not the Kirby.<p>I am the Scott. <p>I think the struggle comes from not having time to do "car shows" and the husband going off to do his "guy" things and leaving the family. After all why do most buy a Volvo? To protect their families, right? Me on the other hand was to get my "mid life" car. Wife loves Volvo safety record so I played off that. Goy my Yellow, then she wrecked her car (95 850), started driving the yellow and now won't give it back. Remidy, I bought a V70R.<p>My attempt with this event is to make it more family friendly with things for the kids to do (and next year for the wives).<p>The location is awesome. The park rangers are great people that want to see us succeed. and are looking for us next year.
