Post by volvie! Fri Apr 27, 2012 4:08 pm

Hello everyone!

Please join the Sacramento and Golden Gate VCOA Chapters for our 14th Annual Davis Car Show & Swap Meet on April 29th at 9:00am.

Now in its 14th year, the annual Davis Car Show & Swap Meet is one of the larger events on the West Coast, drawing 100+ members from Southern CA all the way up to the state of Washington and across the Sierras to the state of Nevada.

All Volvos are welcome whether they be a work-in-progress, a daily driver, showroom beauty, or a highly modified (race) car. This year will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1800 and the 20th anniversary of the 850.

Special request: If you have a stock, low mileage, original 850 series, wagon or sedan, we would like to feature your car in a display area. There will be an area highlighting the P1800 and 850 release and we would like to show them in their factory delivered condition. If you feel you have an 1800 or 850 that meets this criteria, contact CJ Yother (cj.yother at ggvcoa dot org Subject: Display Vehicle).

Note that this year "the car show will be a judged event! 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!"

Let’s make Saturday and Sunday great VCOA events!"

2012 Note:

I put out a call for judges and volunteers for Davis earlier today. The Chapter's are trying hard to make this the event of the year, but in order to do so we need volunteers. If you are coming and can offer a bit of time either for the Auto-X or the Car Show and Swap Meet on Sunday we need to hear from you. The more bodies we have the less each of us have to work. Think of it as a Habitat for Humanity Volvo style.

We want to break some records this year. The record attendance at Davis is about 125 (126 IIRC) cars. Sell out is appx 150 cars. Bring em out and lets have to close the gate to entries. Several sponsors have already committed with lots in store. We also have a Volvo North America Regional Market Manager interested in getting involved, but we need to show him that we can put together a event worthy of their participation. In order to do this we need Volvo owners to come out in force!

Bring it!

We hope to see you there.

If you have any questions, please let us know!

Take care,

Selected Event Updates from the Turbobricks Forum topic:

Tell all your friends, family and passers by to come to this event. We are working with a regional Volvo rep to get some support. If we come out in numbers they will start to participate more. P1800 and 850's are the feature car, but we want all models to show up. Davis regularly has about 125 cars, at 150 we're about at capacity. Get your a$$ out there and let's sell out! Register now!

Looking ahead. Mark your calendars

2013 Davis will celebrate IPD's 50th Anniversary.
2014 Davis will feature the release of the 240.

Goodies are starting to show up from sponsors. A box from Meguiar's today, can't wait to see what they sent. IPD, RSI and and iRoll Motors have also expressed they will be sending goodies and sponsoring portions of the meet.

Lots of special attractions lining up this year. Mike Dudek is bringing a P1800 with 37k on the clock, Bruce Ackerman is bringing his SCCA 1800 and will show it off on stands with the front end off, Hopefully Lars will have his beautiful P1900 also on display + much much more.

Cameron, tease everybody with some of what IPD has planned for this monster event!

We still need some volunteers for judges. We have a few, but need at least 5 more. All that we ask is that you don't judge in a class that your car is entered in. That being said now is the time to chime in so you can show off your in depth knowledge of a particular model or two.

We still need a box stock 850 that can be used to display how an 850 was delivered from the factory.

Some great news today. K-PAX sent me an e mail and they will be bringing one of their C30 cars and hopefully several raffle items and a booth with some of their new merchandise.

I also heard from the VCNA representative for this region and it looks like we will have participation from Volvo corporate. This is an excellent opportunity to come out in force and show Volvo what a following the club has to begin a long term relationship that will keep them engaged for years to come.

I think I'll attend all of the events.

Oh my, did I forget to mention the Davis Flea Market on the green behind the show. It looks like I did. Yes, that 's right the Davis Flea Market will be on the green with food vendors and live music starting at noon.
