Swedish Car Day XII: August 28th Sunday, Brookline Mass. 10-2pm. Lawn opens at 8am.
Swedish Car Day XII (#12) will be held on Sunday Aug 29th at Lars Anderson Museum of Transportation in Brookline MA.
"It’s that time of year—time to get ready for Swedish Car Day! This will be the 12th Swedish Car Day at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum. As always, there will be a raffle, an extra special give-way to every registered attendee, judging of displayed cars and guest speakers.
This year, one of the featured speakers will be Don Thibault who will discuss his all-original 1968 Volvo 1800S. Our Saab speaker has not yet been confirmed but we will post this information, likely next week, at the SCD Facebook page. Plus, we will have some brand new enhancements never before seen at SCD, so this is an event not to be missed.
Swedish Car Day will be held on Sunday, August 28, 2011 from 10 to 2. Lawn will open at 8am. Fee per displayed car is $20 and includes two admissions. Fee will be collected upon entry.
As a preamble to Swedish Car Day XII, we will have a Swedish Car Day Scavenger Rally: Greater Boston Parks and Gardens. This will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2011 from 1:30 to 3:30. Participating cars must be Swedish, and there must be at least one co-driver , though you may bring as many hecklers as you have room for. After the rally, there will be a cookout at Charles River Saab where all Swedish Car Day participants (not limited to rally teams) can convene and catch up with one another. Again, keep an eye on Facebook for more details as the date approaches.

Vi ses snart!"
