2018 Volvo meet at OHTM

On Saturday we got an early start and made the two hour run up to the Owls Head Transportation Museum for the Foreign Auto Festival .  And we are glad we did as it was a great event and a good bunch of like minded folks several of whom knew dad and his old Volvo .
Volvo Club of Maine president Joe Kendall puts in a big effort to get the marque to make a strong showing at the event . . . .
And since as of dad's passing last November we now are accidental owners of his old 1962 PV544 we got to be part of the festivities  .
P1800s had a strong presence
Dave Burnham's 140 series was there
 Looking very tidy under the hood
 Ron Lockwood with his immaculate P1800 was there
 And a Mustang Cobra five liter V8 mated to a T5 trannie . . .
 . . . . stuffed in David Moore's 940 series wagon
 Indomitable Joe Kendall's pristine 142
  With a surgically clean engine compartment you could eat out of . . .
 A nicely restored 1958? PV445 Duet . . .
 . . .  that Quasimodo got parked next to
 Head of the lineup too .
 A sweet P1800 wagon
 And a nineteen seventies vintage Marco
 Plywood and fiberglass construction
 With a Volvo B30 engine
 The B30 is a six cylinder three liter variant from the 160 series Volvos .
 Not a Volvo but a Swedish cousin also snuck in , a late sixties , I think , Saab 99
 After the meet at the museum we were all invited to Duncan and Naomi's house in Spruce Head for a big lobster feed .
Here in Maine you'll never see so many rust free Volvos together .
 Quasimodo got the center stage spot again
 A sweet view of the cove
 More Volvos than you can shake a stick at .
 The old and the new bling
 Some definitely a bit more Loco than others
 I think dad would be happy to see his PV keeping company with his old friends .
 David Moore's red hot mustang powered 940 wagon has to be my favorite
We were even blessed with a visit by iconic Maine radio personalty THE  "Humble Farmer".
I took a whole lot more photos of the other cars at the Foreign Auto Festival but this post is long enough for today .
