      NEWS FLASH - Due to the large number of Volvos already registered for the meet this October 14-16th (including seventy 1800s!), we cannot accept concours registrations after Friday October 7th. Furthermore, if you register your Volvo after that date we cannot guarantee you a spot in the parking lot of Saturday's show at Gladstone's Malibu. If you want to have your car judged, or if you've been planning to show up on the day of the event without pre-registration, now is the time to act. This is going to be a historic gathering of vintage Volvos presented by Volvo Cars North America and we don't want to turn any enthusiasts away.


      Your registration choices are:

      Celebration Package - $120 for 1 person and car - Your Volvo in the concours, get a goodie bag, experience the entire weekend including all hosted meals

      Saturday Budget Pass - $60 for 1 person and car - Display your Volvo, get a goodie bag, experience Saturday only

      If you've already registered for the Celebration Package or Saturday Budget Pass, congratulations! Your registration and goodie bag will be ready for you at the meet, where a once-in-a-lifetime Volvo celebration awaits!

      Click to download the registration form: http://www.socalvsa.org/news/wp-cont...gistration.pdf

      See you in Malibu!

      The 1800 50th Anniversary Celebration Presented by Volvo is blowing up! Not only are we SOLD OUT of Saturday Budget Passes, but we are OUT OF PARKING SPACES in Saturday's concours and car show at Gladstone's Malibu this Saturday October 15th. If you registered your Volvo before the deadline, congratulations- you'll be part of a historic celebration with 130 other Volvos!

      If you have not registered, you can still participate:

      Enjoy the show for free as a spectator.

      Buy a Celebration Pass on Saturday - $60 per person. Get an event goodie bag (while supplies last) and attend the banquet awards dinner at 5PM, where the raffle grand prizes and trophy winners will be announced!

      Remember, there is no parking for unregistered Volvos in the Gladstone's Malibu lot. To join us, you can park across the street in the Spectrum Garage on Castellamare, 17383 Sunset Blvd (1 block up Sunset Blvd from PCH, Turn left on Castellamare, Turn left into garage, Take ticket). Max $13.50 per day. Garage is open from 9AM to 7PM. After you've parked, walk back over to the Volvo Sports America tent and buy your Celebration Pass, or just check out the show.

      Over eighty 1800s, two P1900s, test drives of the 2012 S60 R-Design, dozens of other race, custom, and masters class Volvos in our concours, plus a huge raffle, tech sessions, and more... If you love Volvos, the Volvo Sports America West Coast National Meet this Saturday in Malibu will not disappoint!
