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.

  • We never were able to find out what it was. The stamping on it was ripped off and we just decided to move on. We were going to replace a part the make the transmission run smoother but the current part is still able to work so we're just going to move on with it. We're waiting on the shop to put the remaining seals on and then we'll get it back. It's been so long and I'm just so happy to get it back soon and get my car running again. It just hurts me to see it sitting on jacks in my garage.


    • Sorry I’ve been inactive for a while, I still haven’t done much. I’ve just been very busy but in 2 weeks my schedule frees up a lot so I’ll be able to work on it almost all day. I’m kinda glad I didn’t put it in yet because a guy that my dad met has a k24 turbo form a s60r with all of the necessary things for it along with the exhaust manifold from it. He gave us a very good deal for it so I’m buying it and putting that in. It would require a retune but I’ll be able to figure that out.


      • Funny how a simple engine replacement snowballs into making a race car lol. Been there


        • Lol I’m not gonna complain I wanted to make it fast but this is way more than I expected


          • Not quite. Still needs a bit of work. I should have the engine ready to go into the car next week. I’ll be gone for the weekend at the imsa race but then I’ll hopefully drop it back in the car when I get back. The k24 changed the whole process so I’ve had to order new parts to make it work on the 850 engine and I’m just waiting on a few parts and then it shouldn’t be much longer once they come.
