Last Chance to Register for the 1800 50th Anniversary Celebration! – October 14-16th 2011

Due to the large number of Volvos already registered for the meet this October 14-16th (including seventy 1800s!), we cannot accept concours registrations after Friday October 7th. Furthermore, if you register your Volvo after that date we cannot guarantee you a spot in the parking lot of Saturday’s show at Gladstone’s Malibu. If you want to have your car judged, or if you’ve been planning to show up on the day of the event without pre-registration, now is the time to act. This is going to be a historic gathering of vintage Volvos presented by Volvo Cars North America and we don’t want to turn any enthusiasts away.

Your registration choices are:

• Celebration Package – $120 for 1 person and car – Your Volvo in the concours, get a goodie bag, experience the entire weekend including all hosted meals

• Saturday Budget Pass – $60 for 1 person and car – Display your Volvo, get a goodie bag, experience Saturday only

If you’ve already registered for the Celebration Package or Saturday Budget Pass, congratulations! Your registration and goodie bag will be ready for you at the meet, where a once-in-a-lifetime Volvo celebration awaits!
