I will be there. I have not decided if I want to put my car in the show or just go as a visitor. If we can get a few of the diesel volvos to participate in the show I would show mine, that way we could all park next to each other and represent the coal burners. :)

Any one else interested? I'm pretty sure I will be there parked next to Chad.

If there are more than just Anders and I we need to roll in together. Other wise we wont be able to park together, and thats no fun. :(

I might be able to go. We have been talking about putting together a diesel bricks meet for a while, and I was actually looking at that same weekend. I had been thinking about doing something separate but maybe we could do this and combine it with something else, maybe a scenic drive around the area either before or after the car show? Especially if we can get enough people into it this could be a lot of fun. Being able to do something indoors at that time of year in the Northwest would be a plus too.

I am going to purchase my entry tomorrow for the car show. I know they are limited and they will sell out due to that this is an indoor car show. I would love that Anders and I were not the only ones representing at this car show. I also would love to have a cruise and a pre meet before hand. If we do a pre meet/ cruise it has to be before the show. The FEST show starts at 2pm and ends at 8pm.

I got my ticket for the indoor show, who else will be showing. I want to make sure we get to park all together.

I'll get one and see if I can get some others to join up too.

It would be fun to do our own swap meet and cruise, and I agree, with the show starting in the afternoon, it would have to be beforehand. Since I think all of us will probably be coming from south of where the fest will be happening, maybe we could all meet up in Seattle in the morning then take a scenic route up to Monroe that we could drive as a group?

Should be fun. Guess this means I'll have to wash my car. It has been a while... :o

Where in Seattle should we all meet and what time?

Well I will be either driving around through Tacoma or I will take the ferry to Edmonds. We can meet in Edmonds or Everett?

Meeting in Edmonds sounds good to me, if we can figure out a good place to do it. Maybe a park by the water? Or near ferry dock? I don't know that area well.

If we want to start further south, in Seattle, I can think of a few good places that would work, Golden Gardens or Carkeek Park, or many other options. However, if Edmonds is more convenient, I'm sure we can figure out something there easily enough.

I'll be driving my '86 744, and maybe will get a friend to bring another from my "fleet". :cool:

I will be coming from the Federal way area. George do you want to meet in Seattle so we can cruise to Edmonds together? We could meet at the same Starbucks we met at when I bought the turbo manifold from you.

We can meet up at the port of Edmonds or at Ivars off of Edmonds way/ hwy 104 for lunch if we meet around lunch time.
What time are we thinking of meeting up?

Ivar's in Edmonds/Mukilteo sounds like a great idea. How about we meet there at 12:00 noon on Saturday -- that way we can gather up and have some food, then still have enough time to cruise around a little bit before the show.

Chad, that Starbucks is a ways south of where I would be starting from. Since we are heading northwards anyway, maybe you and I could meet up somewhere a little further north in Seattle and drive up to Edmonds together? Say maybe in Ballard or Fremont at around 11:30 -- that way we could go straight up Hwy 99 from there.

Still need to figure out a route from there to Monroe. Most direct is Hwy 522 which is a nice road, but if we can find a good loop that adds a few more scenic miles that might be a nice option too.

Alright, I will meet you guys at Ivars off of 104 around noon. We then can discuss the route over some good fish-n-chips.

Is just us three driving are diesel bricks?

I checked with forum member ngoma, who is also local, if he wanted to come up but he couldn't get free. Dan was interested in coming but his 244 has a blown head and can't climb hills, so I don't know if it would be able to make the trip from Seattle. It's waiting for a D24T swap that hasn't happened yet... I might see if he wants to drive a second one of my three 700's -- bring the number up to four cars at least. I know of a couple other diesel drivers in the Seattle area but they are unfortunately not the car show type...

There are quite a few diesel brick drivers in Oregon that I hoped would see this thread, but those guys (Slobodan, 77volvo245, a couple others) seem like they haven't been around here as much lately. Maybe I'll give one of them a call in case they want to come up.

Sounds like the family and I are going to make a day of it and spend some time up north. I will meet you guys at the Ivars around noon. We will probably eat at the new Dicks Burgers in Edmonds since we love there food. Dicks is only 2 miles away from Ivars so I am not to far from you. See ya around noon.

It was a good time yesterday, even though the group was small. Hopefully the other two of you got some pictures -- I didn't take any.

At least our three cars represented a nice selection of US Volvo Diesel versions: we had two sedans and one wagon, two turbodiesels and one NA, two manuals and one automatic, two 200 series and one 700. I think we pretty much covered it all. :cool:

We did get some interested looks and comments, and we definitely had something there that nobody else did! There was one other Volvo in the show, a 242GT, and one other VW diesel (an old Golf) -- but no other Volvos with VW diesels under the hood.

We have the Swedish meet at XXX in Issaquah coming up in February -- maybe we will try to get a bigger group together then. I'm not driving behind Chad's car next time, though...

The show was fun, well sort of.. I think our cars were nicer then 90% of the cars there!:eek: I was hoping to see some cooler and more unique cars there, not just ours.. But that RWD rabbit was something and the cool little Vtec powered yellow mini.
It was great talking with you guys and gals some more, it was fun. I hope we can get a bigger group together for the swedish show.

Chad- Lets put a turbo on that thing!
George- Thanks for the turbo diesel plaque.
Here are a few pictures that I took.
