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


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.

  • A/T Shifter Stuck

    1987 245 A/T. Been using this car as my daily for over a year now and it has never let me down until now. Nothing done out of the ordinary, just went to go park it after coming home, and the shifter would not go past neutral. Mount and bushings are being replaced as this is written, and fuses are good. Any advice, tips, and tricks are welcome, as I have no idea what else it could be. Thank you in advance!

    Good news! Figured it out, the gear selector button spring got wedged in itself, preventing upward travel. The whole shifter was disassembled, cleaned, and installed. New transmission mount as well, the bushings soon to follow.
