Volvo show, Idlerton (London) July 23rd.

note: I remember a few people asked me about Volvo meet on Max, but I honestly not too sure where to post this, so I just copy and pasted. Also NickP will come by, so we'll have at least 2 normal people (usually Volvo owners are serioudly gay and dull)



well the cruise is not really from GTA, but close enough damn it!

the meet:

the cruise:
I did this 2 yrs ago, I couldn't go last yr cause I was fairly sick.

show starts at 10AM, last time we were there around 1030-11AM.

so we'll meet up at a Plaza beside Royal Bank Canada HQ by 401 & Mississauga Rd. (Erin Mills Pkwy), the plaza itself is north of 401, its right off the exit, there's a Tim Hortons there.

me and a few people will be there around 9AM, the plan is to leave before 930AM, I'll be there having coffee and donuts.

Its the nicest Volvo meet in Ontario if you're not into Volvos - probably not worth it. If you're into Volvos then it is.

I love those cars, really quick. I have not driven one, but my mom had an 850 n/a when I started driving, loved it. And now she has the C70 HPT, meaning same engine, same hp, a bit quicker to 60, god I love driving it, the pull is insane at 4000rpm.
