On Saturday we got an early start and made the two hour run up to theOwls 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 Mainepresident 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 byiconicMaine 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 .
