April 28, 2013: Davis Car Show & Swap Meet

Post by volvie! on Fri Apr 12, 2013 1:24 am

Hello everyone!

Please join the Golden Gate and Sacramento VCOA Chapters for our 15th Annual Davis Car Show & Swap Meet on April 28th at 9:00am.

The annual Davis Car Show & Swap Meet is one of the larger Volvo events on the West Coast, drawing 100+ Volvos and 200+ members from Southern CA all the way up to the state of Washington and across the Sierras to the state of Nevada and regularly sees visitors from Arizona and Texas.

All Volvos are welcome whether they are a work-in-progress, a daily driver, showroom beauty, or a highly modified (race) car.

This year's car show will be a judged event and have "People's Choice" voting categories! Participation in the judged car show is optional. If you don't wish to be judged, don't worry, you can still have your car on display for everyone else to admire!

This year will mark the50th anniversary of IPD and the 30th anniversary of the VCOA and we have big plans to celebrate!
