I'll be there Friday and Saturday with the Volvo if it's not raining or just Saturday (without the Volvo) if rain is expected.

Based on last night's weather forecast, I have cancelled my hotel reservations at Carlisle and will not be going. Sorry to anyone who was hoping to see the car. Rob, you are always welcome to call or e-mail me and come by any time.

I'll keep my eye on it. There is an outside chance I would drive up early Saturday morning if it's going to clear, but I won't drive my car in the rain. I'm too lazy. <P>I know what you mean about a once a year chance. It's too bad really. I wish the VCOA meet were closer to the Mid-Atlantic region every year. I may go to an Import show at Maryland International Raceway (MIR) in July.<P><p>[This message has been edited by PWSchuh (edited 05-16-2002).]

But seems like the weather should clear up towards mid morning.<P>I'll see what's the general consensus is, maybe we'll do the caravan a little bit later..like 9~9:30 am depends on the weather. Don't worry, I've got the car in almost concourse condition (the keyword almost since Sean will probably still beat me to the best condition <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">), I would hate to see the car get all dirty before we even get to the show.<P>Let me know by email: [email protected]<BR>

Ok, the new plan is to meet at Romano's Macaroni Grille at 9:45 now. This is due to the rain. So Micheal and anyone else going, that's the plan. Kai and I will be there.<P>Rob

There were a lot of really nice older Volvos there. I saw a stock/original looking example of a 444, 122, 140, 164, and 1800. There were a couple of modified 122's and 1800's, and a 140 w/17" 850R Volan wheels. Irv's red 1800 looked good, but there was another red 1800 that looked better. I really liked the subtle looking cowl scoop on the hood, and the paint was excellent. I overheard the owner talking about the engine needing 100 octane to run right, so I assume it performed as well as it looked.<P>There was a wild 245 with custom white/yellow/purple paint and a monster stereo. It also featured a flat hood, e-code lights, painted/detailed engine & engine bay, custom interior work, and a rear hatch modified with a square license plate recess & shaved wiper/washer. The side trim and bumper trim holes had been welded up as well.<P>I didn't see a single GT, and not many 240 Turbos (a blue flathood and one other, I think). The pre-240 models definitely dominated the group this year, although there were a couple of nice 700 series cars, and many 240s.<P>The Saab and BMW sections were HUGE this year. A ton of Saab 900/9000 and 9-3/9-5. A majority of the BMW's were 70s models like the 1600 and 2002. A few M3's, 3 series, and an M6. A stunning black '88 M5 was also for sale at the show.<P>

The roads was a bit wet before we got on 270, after that the weather was pretty decent. It was kinda cold that day, but no rain....<P>

It was raining in VA when I left to meet the caravan in MD, but before I even got there the rain had stopped (around 9:15-9:30 I guess). It didn't rain a drop on the whole ride there, nor did it rain at all during the day. While I was packing up the car and getting ready to leave, it started to rain lightly. It stayed light for a while and picked up once we got back on rt.15. It didn't rain for long (~5min), and that was it for the day.<P>I went up on Friday too, and it didn't rain until 8 minutes after I left the showfield, on my way home (4:30pm). That was also a light sprinkle and it didn't last very long.<P>I don't know what Sunday was like in Carlisle, but at Summit Point it was chilly and windy, but no rain at all.<P><BR>Did anyone go to the import show in Hershey on Sunday?<P>
