      Momentum Volvo Coffee and Cars 8-17-2013 - Houston, Texas!

      We have a date for our car show/gathering for this summer.

      Date: 8-17-2013 from 8am - 10am
      Where: Momentum Volvo 10150 Southwest Fwy, Houston 77074

      We decided to do a scaled back show this time to see how much interest we get. I know it's hot but it's early enough to not really matter...beside we will have our air conditioned showroom open to cool down.

      We want all of you guys and gals to come show your car regardless of it being stock or race ready. We will have a gourmet coffee company in house for the event. We also will have a couple non-tuned cars and a couple Polestar tuned cars available for comparison testing with salesmen. So come bring your car, meet some good people, drive the two different cars, and have some fun for a couple hours!

      I do need to get a tentative car count so please let me know if you plan on making the event. I know it's only a couple hours but maybe we can plan a lunch together afterwards also. For those of you out of towners, staying over Friday night would be a good option. A lot of the Houston guys are very gracious and may allow you to crash at their houses, but if you need advice on where to stay, shoot me an e-mail.

      If all goes well and we get a good crowd, I will do a larger show in the fall paired with one of our great charities!

      I know most of the c30crew group will be there. Moose Tech is probably the best Volvo tech anywhere

      you again...haha! what's up man, I heard you got married. Congrats! Make sure you stay on your best behavior this time. We don't want any S60R deaths this time ! Speaking of, do you have a Volvo anymore??? By "crashing my party", do you mean you are coming to the show? and Yes Jerome did buy a 2004 S60R. His S70 burnt a valve racing a BMW since he never had it tuned properly...then we put it all back together and found a large crack across the back of the block. So that thing is down waiting on him the build up a spare block he took out of an old 850R. The S60R is dark gray with baseball glove interior. It's a nice car and has a BSR tune, Magnaflow exhaust, and some other little things. I'm sure he will manage to screw it up somehow.

      thanks man, and hell yeah I still have a volvo... just got my 3rd R. my mom just got a red 06 R. you know what happen to my first R my second R I just traded for a R I bought from California...a sonic blue 06 R with baseball interior. and according to VCNA it's 1 of 8 ! here's some pictures. oh and yes I plan on being there I really wanna see some polestar . but my wife is pregnant and due in 8 weeks so hopefully we won't have any problems with traveling to Houston . Man that sucks for Jerry the s70 was cool as ****, at least he has an R though. make sure you let him know that I said my R is way better than his lmao, I got some Pegasus machine faced wheels ordered from ipd so the rims on it will be gone as soon as I get the wheels in. but they are backorder sui it's gonna b a while
      here's my old R

      AND HERE'S MY NEW BABY



      I re painted the rims, they had some large chips in the paint and then repolished the lips of it, they are stock volvo vector wheels

      the wheels I ordered

      and here's my 850r

      cool man...congrats on the new baby! we also had our second baby on May 2nd this year.

      Car looks great. Hopefully those IPD wheels work out for you. I have heard they don't clear the Brembos (case different than Volvo Pegs) but I could be way wrong on that one. Show starts at 8 but be here at 7:30 if possible for parking reasons. I'd like to park yours next to Jerome's

      BTW, we are now a Kpax dealer! I post over on C30Crew.com so join up over there and search "Momentum" and you can see all the cool stuff we are into these days.

      New old guy here. I'm planning on being there with my recently purchased 2013 Polestar-tuned C-30 R design 6-speed to see what I can pick up from the experts. A little background - this is my 3rd Volvo, the previous 2 being a 1982 245 Turbo and a 1993 850GLT.

      Cool! I've had to flake out on the last couple of local events, but I will try to be there!
      Current Vehicles:
      2011 Volvo C30 R-Design, Orange Flame Metallic - My quarter-life-crisis-mobile
      2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser, Cool Vanilla - Does this even count as a vehicle?
      I'm looking to eventually replace the PT with a used 240/740/9x0/850/V70/XC70 wagon for drum-hauling and utility purposes. Thoughts or sales pitches, PM me!

      I have a stock 2011 C30 R-Design. Not planning to "show", but definitely interested in showing up!

      honestly, most of the cars on the list are relatively stock so it's more of a gathering/meet rather than a"show" so your car will be great as is

      Plan to be there!

      Planning to bring my 1971 Volvo 1800E (P1800) to the show. Hope to add a little nostalgic touch to the show.

      Welcome to Swedespeed, James.

      We would love to see a new thread here...

      http://forums.swedespeed.com/forumdi...0ES-(1959-1973)

      ...with pics and a history of your '71 1800E.

      BTW, have you attended any Texas Volvo Meets in the last 20 years?

      we have cars coming from San Antonio, San Marcus, Austin, an Dallas....you should still come out! a bunch of the guys/gals are going to St Arnold's Brewery after the event to hang out f or a couple hours. maybe that will make the drive worth it

      What time would you recommend that we arrive to get parked in our proper spot, and not interfere with Momentum regular business?

      Thank you guys for coming out!! I really appreciate the support and hope everyone had a great time! Next time we will make this event a bit longer and have more things going on.
      Those P1800s were amazing!

      Thanks again!

      here is a link to some of the pictures on C30 Crew!

      Thanks to all of the crew for making my "Yellow Rose" P-1800 so welcome to your show. I have tried to sign onto the c30crew link to thank the group but apparently have not been authorized to contribute. Please feel free to cut and paste my note to their forum. My wife and I had a great time and were very sorry we had to cut out without the chance for lunch with the crew(commitments to grandkids). The pictures of the 1800 were all very complimentary and the nice words always appreciated. Please remind me about being part of the C30 crew if you happen to see us at one of the other shows. Hope to see y'all again soon.
