      Seattle, WA: Meet and Greet

      Hi Swedespeed fans,

      I am creating a post to meet in Seattle, WA and around. To avoid any overlapping post and issue, we can aim for a monthly/weekly doodle to know where and when we can meet

      Disclosure: ALL Volvo are encouraged to participate

      Moose to everyone

      Doodle for October 2018 Meeting here
      -Put your first name then "aka your pseudo"
      -disclose any location(s) in comments

      Did the Doodle thing but don't think my comment posted. One suggestion is either the Redmond Red Robin on 148th Ave across from Fred Meyer or the 5 Guys burger. They both are in the parking lot of the old Sears so lots of open parking.

      Thanks TnoV60 for putting this together,

      Was great meeting up and checking out each other's rides! Who knew that we were in the center of the NW Volvo universe with all those cool other Volvos driving by.

      Out here near beautiful downtown Seabeck with a 2018 V90. Donít get in to Seattle frequently, but with some advanced notice I could make the trek. Anyone else with a V90?

      Cheers!

      They are a little rare. In the year and half since I became interested in the V90 Iíve even exactly two. Mine, and one while driving back from Oregon.

      Hello Seattle Volvo'ers.

      There is a Swedish car meet this weekend in Issaquah, Feb 10th. Not sure if the weather will play a part in this.
      http://triplexrootbeer.com/

      Also, there is a Volvo group that meets in Shoreline in the summer. Website looks outdated tho.
      http://psvsa.org/

      Hope to see some nice rides and gather some knowledge.

      Would love to attend, but snowing like crazy out on the Hood Canal right now, and weather looks iffy twixt now and Sunday. I enjoy driving in the snow, but donít trust some of the *other* drivers around here when itís slick. Will do a bit of local driving just to feel how our new V90 T6 handles the white stuff! Whee!

      Cheers!

      I'm looking to dispose of my tax refund at the IPD gathering in May - I assume that a few of you are going?

      Also, anyone in the Tacoma area know a good Volvo indy? I used to always go to Precision up in Seattle, but now that I've moved South it's a bit of a trek.
      I'm not good, I'm not nice, I'm just right.

      Iíve been taking our V70 to The Art Works in Tacoma for regular maintenance for a couple of years. Sort of an old school shop, no fancy reception area, just a couple of guys who specialize in Volvos. Based on my interactions with other customers, they have a dedicated bunch of long term clients.

      Iím taking my new V90 there tomorrow for an ďearlyĒ oil change.

      I'm down in Sumner, near the Sounder station. It's a great little place to be and a hell of a lot cheaper than Seattle.

      I'm in Lakeland, on the Pierce County side of the line, though we hang out in Sumner and Bonney Lake quite a bit. Don't think you could pay me to live any closer to Seattle.
