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.

      Tell me about it. I've been on the lookout for years. Patience is a virtue.

          I went with a friend a few years ago to get one from a guy who had one in Tacoma WA. The rack was all in one piece, but it needed work. We were able to restore it. They are sweet. We will keep our eyes peeled for one.

          Not sure if it's in stock, but Scandcar says they carry it: https://classic-volvo.com/roofrack-145-for-volvo.html

            So I'm curious, honestly what is the most you would pay for one that has obviously been used. Now see if you can find a local or better yet, sign up for welding class , learn to tig stainless and copy it or make it your own design . You can purchase light guage stainless steel tube in tons of sizes over the internet.

              Thanks for all of your input. Sadly, Volpar seems to be closed. Their phone is disconnected at the least.

              I can't say what I'd actually pay for a rack as I have no basis for comparison as of yet. I guess it depends on how much I'd have to put back into it. It looks like Scandcar has one for $650. That's definitely out of my range (esp after shipping). I could fab one up, but I'd rather have an authentic part. It's more about authenticity and asthetics than than function for me. Plus I enjoy restoration more that straight fabrication.
