Volvos Through the Gorge - Volvo Car Cruise

It has been quite some time since we have been able to get together. During this unfortunate time everyone has been doing their best to navigate through unforeseen challenges. That’s why three prolific members of the Volvo community figured it would be best to partner up and host a car show before summer ends. IPD, Vol-Tech, and DLR Nordic got together and organized a car meet followed up by a drive through the majestic Columbia River Gorge ending up at Murphy’s Family Watering Hole in Bingen Washington. We hope you’ll join us for lunch. This is purely a gathering of enthusiasts looking to have some fun and chat about their Volvo. We look forward to seeing you September 25th!


SATURDAY 25th 8:30am

CAR MEET AND DRIVE THROUGH THE GORGE EVENT

We will meet at IPD Volvo at 8:30am. If the main lot gets full we will start parking cars along Ainsworth Circle right outside of IPD’s driveway. For those who want to go for a drive through the Columbia River Gorge, we will leave IPD at 10AM. The caravan will hit I-205 North and then head out HWY 14 East to Bingen Washington (directly across from Hood River) For those of you joining us for lunch at Murphy’s Family Watering Hole you will receive a $5.00 off coupon.



Note***** IPD, DLR Nordic, and Vol-tech are not responsible for any incidents or accidents that may occur during this drive event. Everyone who attends will be driving and participating at their own risk.

  • IPD Front Air Dam 122 models. GO or No Go.

    Dear Community,

    Many moons ago we created molds for front Air Dams/Spoilers for 122/1800 models. We're working with the manufacture on upgrading the molds and possibly bringing back these spoilers if the price is appropriate. We used to offer these Air Dams right around the $130 retail. Unfortunately after investing in the mold and new manufacturing cost, retail is coming in around $275.00. I figured this would be the best place to put out some feelers around this product. Would you be willing to pay that price if we moved forward? If not what price point to you feel is feasible. Thank you for your input and feedback.

    My two cents...

    I've personally never felt like they flowed with the Swedish design of the car when used by themselves. Integrating the bumper with them helps but I still feel like the corners don't flow into the arches of the fenders. I'd really like to see a body panel made fit to make the front of the car look as gorgeous as say an Alfa Romeo GTV/A without bumpers, hell, even a VW beetle looks great without bumpers. It's beyond me why the designers decided to not extend the body work down another 10 or 12 inches. Same goes for the back of the car but it's not as bad I suppose. Using the bumper as a body panel was just plain lazy in my opinion. I've actually toyed with the idea of just a simple wedge air dam like those used on 70's era cars in Trans Am racing. It's always seemed to me that something was missing from the front of the car from the bumper down.

        Why not include photos of it mounted on a 122?

          Would love a cool air dam as well as a cool rear spoiler for a wagon. Do you have pics of what they look like?
