Re: Last GTG for mid-Atlantic area members? (GrecianVolvo)

Well you know, speaking of October, there's another thing we can do....<p>The Hershey Antique Auto Show is coming up then. I can check on dates. There's not a lot of Volvo content, but it's the largest antique auto show in the USA (world maybe?). There's generally a high end vintage auction over at the Hershey Lodge. We could figure out a place to meet up and maybe go over to the show. A thought...<p>Right now I'm free the 1st, 3rd and 4th weekend in October, BUT my wife defends for her PHD the day before the 3rd weekend, so that might be up in the air. I'll check on the Hershey dates.

I'd be up for something on the 3rd or 4th weekend in October. If it's earlier, I still might make it. That Hershey, PA car show sounds like something I'd want to do anyway, so I may go even if there isn't any Volvo presence.

Re: Last GTG for mid-Atlantic area members? (GrecianVolvo)

I would like to attend any show but not in Philly <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> It is too far for the VA crowd and Baltimore is halfway for the VA and Pa crowd.How about another show at Annapolis Volvo SIR George?It would be good to get more familar with them ( Annapolis Volvo) also.Get them used to seeing us . <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Last GTG for mid-Atlantic area members? (GrecianVolvo)

Only first weekend of Oct. is bad for me, rest of the month I'm cool. Let's get a date finalized. Annapolis was cool, but we had very limited parking spaces for us to all get lined up and take group photo.<p>Philly could be a bit far, but if Yannis can work out something for us....I'll make my C a trailer queen. lol~ j/k...I'll drive it up there just for Yannis. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Plus, we can always drive down to visit Ben and Phil when we are there.

Re: Last GTG for mid-Atlantic area members? (Turbo16psi)

Well, it seems that a lot of people will be available during the LAST WEEKEND OF OCTOBER...Let's do it!<p>Perhaps we can meet in the "middle", Baltimore or Annapolis. If you guys want to come up to the Philly area you are more than welcome. Actually, we are not located in Philly but about 22 miles SouthEast, only 6 miles from the border with Delaware. We can meet at my dealership! I am sure that we will have an XC90 by then! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>But I would strongly recommend that it is done on Sunday as on Saturday we are open for business.<p> <B> <I> George...what do you say?</I></B> <p>Then I can finally meet up with Kai and his "C-queen"! Heeheehee!<p><br>Yannis

Philly sounds good to me. I think I am clear that weekend, I need to check with the Missus. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I don't know if I'll be driving a Volvo though. I just got news that the Tranny in our 240 has gone the way of the dodo. Sayonara try tomorrow. Oh well, I'm giddy with the idea of investing so much cash into that car. We shall see. I just don't know if it's worth it.

Sell it and get the R as Swedespeed's new project car. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> Or how about XC90 for the change of pace and for the future little Achorns?

Re: Last GTG for mid-Atlantic area members? (GrecianVolvo)

I think I can do it. <p>BTW, 240 update... I have a line on a used auto tranny, so the 240 isn't going to go away just yet. Good, I was hoping to do more.<p>The R isn't coming out until next spring, but man oh man could I go for a V70R. We'll see...

It's a longer drive, but I'm up for Yannis's dealership. I'll convoy up, but if Rob and Kai are going, I'm going to sit back and watch all the triple lane changes and racing. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">
