Here is the press release from Lee Cordner, vcoa president, I hope to see some of you there. It sounds like it will be a very exciting morning. As always, feel free to post any questions.

ONE LAP OF THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE

Volvo Cars North America in conjunction with the Volvo Club of America will
celebrate fifty years of Volvo Wagons (1953 to 2003) with a huge party in
San Francisco on Sunday August 24th.

All Volvo owners are invited to bring their cars, classic, new, wagons,
sedans and sports cars to Chrissy field in the Presidio at 7:30 AM sharp.

An amazing collection of Volvo wagons, from the earliest models right up
through the new V70R will lead a large pack of Volvos onto the bridge.. The
highway patrol will escort the parade and a helicopter will shoot photos of
the bridge full of Volvos. After a quick turn around on the Marin side, we
will return to Chrissy Field where Volvo will provide breakfast.

For more information on the event, please email Lee Cordner, president Volvo
Club of America at Lee@vcoa.org

See you there!

Ok, not a big response so far, hopefully a lot of you are already planning to come, but I just recieved some news that Volvo will pay the bridge toll for anyone who attends the drive across the bridge. This is of course in addition to the free breakfast provided by volvo, and of course the company of fellow volvo enthusiasts :lol: .

I really hope to see some of you there.

I think the birds eye Golden Gate shoot is for wagons only Nick.....

I am down, but what is the date? Cause you said Saturday the 24th, and the 24th is actually a Sunday, so which is it? My birthday is Friday the 22nd so I noticed that.

I doubt VCNA is going to have 200 cars and only take pictures of the wagons themselves. Film is cheap afterall.

Good point, but I sort of figured they'd only use wagons since it's mainly a "celebration" of wagons.

Ah well, now I guess we'll all be in the picture! 8-)

The wagons are just going to lead the pack of 200 Volvo's of all kinds onto the bridge... every Volvo will be in the arial shot!

More news on the upcoming caravan across the Golden Gate Bridge. The
location for the meeting has changed slightly. We will meet in front of the
Presidio Film Center near the Officers Club in the Presidio. This provides
excellent access to the Bridge and the CHP will escort us from there.

We need to get a handle on how many people will be attending the event. If
you plan to come could you please email me Michael@vcoa.org or Lee Cordner
lee@vcoa.org with the following information:

Your name
The year and model Volvo you will be driving to the event
The number of people in your party

It is very important that you reply. We will send you specific instructions
and directions when you reply. Thanks much for your interest in this and
your participation. It will be a great day.

Wasn't volvo north america headquartered in new jersey? They are now down in Irvine CA, but I bet that they could have helped out with some nice meets in new jersey if you and the vcoa talked to them. They might have their east coast operations still in NJ, you should check and see if they'd be interested in getting something going.

Also, why not just come out to the vcoa east coast national meet in October, it's in VT. I think that I'm coming out for it. There is more info on this meet at vcoa.org.

Eamonn,

VCOA has a very active New Jersey chapter that has events frequently. Check them out at www.vcoa.org

Also, as Michael says, the East Coast National meet will be in October in Vermont. He and I will both be there. You can register for that on the website

Just a quick reminder:

The GG bridge caravan is full. By now everyone who is on the carvan list should have recieved an email confirmation along with an attached "ticket" for the caravan and breakfast. It is important that everyone print out this ticket and bring it to the caravan on sunday morning, it is your ticket to be in the bridge caravan and also have breakfast after.

Those who are on the waiting list:

There is a slight chance that there may be some cancellations on the gg bridge caravan list, so watch for an email confirmation. If you don't recieve a confirmation, you are all welcome to come out to the show and shine meet after breakfast around 9:00am on Sunday morning at the presidio. But it will not be possible for you to participate in the gg bridge caravan as the chp is limiting us to 100 cars on the bridge, and volvo is limiting us to 200 people for breakfast.

Thank you for everyones participation, and I will see you all next weekend.

If there are any questions please feel free to email me, michael@vcoa.org.

A friend and I are flying out from NH for the event (+vacation), so I won't have a car. Anyone have a couple of extra seats in the caravan?

Lee Cordner said he'd hook me up, but I'm sure he's got plenty else to worry about.

Thanks-
Eric

I am not taking my car :eek: :-( :-( :-( :-( :eek: .................

I thought I'd be able to get my car running good today, but even after replacing something I thought was the problem, it is still starving for fuel, bucks and stumlbles like a drunken goat.

BUT a homie of mine just bought a black 240 Turbo from Pat D, and we are going to be taking that though! It's in pristine shape also!

See you guys there!!
