Swedish Car Day XVIII Larz Anderson Museum Brookline, Mass.
-Sunday August 27th started out the way all automotive events should, sunny and mild with a forecast of more of the same . In Wells Maine a group of Volvo enthusiasts have gathered early (6:15) at the Wells Park & Ride for a journey south to an even more "devout" gathering of Swedish Car admirers. Our Clubs unofficial count was 8 members present, which for a group - that many of us had to travel more than 2 hours was more than respectable. The day couldn't have been any nicer for weather and the assortment of Swedish vehicles was truly amazing. The Mass Bay Chapter did a Good Job helping organize, the VCOA was well represented and Volvo Cars of North America did a presentation on the new V60 in the museum. Our Chapter had a great day and with the gorgeous weather, great turnout and a couple of our members (David Moore, Colin Mack) bringing home the "Blue" our folks ventured back to Maine with smiles, memories and thoughts of doing this again next year!
