Hi everyone,<p>So I'll be in the Los Angeles (Studio City) area this Memorial Day weekend for a short vacation. <p>Is anyone interested in a GTG on Saturday late morning/early afternoon? I'd love to meet some fellow Volvo R owners and their rides and talk shop!<p>Any suggestions on a location?

Pick any Zankou parking-lot for a sure bet. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Might I be so bold as to suggest Cars and Coffee in Irvine? I know it's not LA and not late morning, but it's a fun car meet and would be cool to have some nice Volvos make a showing.<p>It's every saturday from 7am-9am at Ford HQ. <A HREF="http://irvine.carsandcoffee.info/" TARGET="_blank">http://irvine.carsandcoffee.info/</A>

Re: Los Angeles trip this weekend, GTG anyone? (George @ ViVA)

Honestly not really. More often than not there is a red 544, a white 122 wagon and a silver 242 flathood. Luciano has gone once or twice and his S60R garnered a fair amount of attention. Occasionally a 740 turbo and I've even seen a nice 855 wagon there, but not recently.<p>You won't hurt my feelings if you say no, i just wanted to throw the idea out there. You will see a lot of classics from muscle to vintage, quite a few exotics and a good mix in between. 3-400 cars usually cycle through there in the 2 hour period. Not to mention you'll be surrounded by a bunch of car nuts.
