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.

      • Will do. Sunday I’m going to start all the prep stuff to take the engine out. I might have to go searching for a few transmission parts depending on what I can the lady can find for me but we’ll just have to see.

        • For a anti lag setup, would it be better to use a rally style set up or just get a tune setup?

          • Got a point, I keep getting ahead of myself lol.

            • Yeah my adolescent brain is just going crazy thinking about everything I want to do to it. We’re preparing the engine and taking out to axles tomorrow so I’ll let everyone know how that goes.

              • Day 1 is complete and didn’t make the progress I was hoping. We got the oil, coolant, and transmission fluid all drained and disconnected the heater core hoses. We got stuck on taking off the belt and belt tensioner because we don’t have the correct thing to take it off and it sent us on a wild goose chase for 1 and a half hours looking for the tool but got nothing. Anyone know where we can get the tool to take that stuff off?

                • Found it and bought it thanks. Tomorrow I think we’re gonna remove the axles.

                  • Remember to take pics along the way to reference for later.. like every member said so far...zip lock bags for nuts and bolts and a sharpie. Label everything!

                    • I already have a bunch of bags ready and I’m writing notes about each one along with taking videos

                      • Transmission came the other day but no other parts came with it all I got was the transmission. I know there is a clutch kit on ipd but it says non-turbo. Would that work or should I try to find the parts elsewhere.

                        • Did that lady you got it from scam you ?
                          A non-turbo clutch kit will work on a turbo but if you can source a complete parts car it may be better to just get it all in one swoop.

                          • Yeah I was thinking about searching for a whole car but I hope she didn’t scam me. I’ll send her a email just to ask her if she knows anything about those parts.

                            • The lady got back to me and Friday she said she’ll help me out in finding the parts

                              • I was thinking the same thing
