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>

Stripes are interesting, something I wouldn't expect on an R

Re: Carlsen Volvo Meet (hastee)

I was gonna try and make it but had some unexpected expenses prevent me. Larry Fuhs (one of the guys in charge and the Parts Manager) is an awesome guy! I will be at next years for sure.<p>I really like the blue color of the classic volvo in the extended pics link...<br>I'd be interested in a digital copy of it in HD quality. How much does she charge for that sort of thing? I don't want a hard copy, I am just researching what color I want my new paint job to be.<br>EDIT: Anyone have info on the owner? I'd be interested in contacting them to discuss their paint job...<BR><BR>

Re: Carlsen Volvo Meet (850arrrsaylikepirate)

Yes thats my dads car, however, the pic you linked is old, he's got his SSR Wheels now! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> He took some shots of it down by the harbor the other day, I'll be posting em up soon. <p>And yes, while others may be doing vinyl and stripes, these are tastefully done, and give the car the most perfect look. Even though I love my R, I'll always be envious of my fathers.
