If you are in the area tomorrow early evening (Friday, October 15, 2021) and would enjoy a meal with a senior citizen Volvo Lover call Tommy Daniel and George Dill.

Also, Saturday morning at 8AM Tommy and I will be warming a chair at El Sarape Mexican Café in downtown Academy.

Wait!

Y'all might need a windbreaker for this get-together as we will have clear cool skies and brisk northerly breezes.

Thanks.

George Dill 1-254-541-2199

Tommy Daniel 1-479-601-6160

El Sarape 1-254-982-4556 104 S Hwy 95, Little River-Academy TX

George,
I thought be able to make the meet can not get off of work. Here links to my 1964 PV544. I am to sell if you hear of anyone who might be. Interested.
Thanks,
Ricky Olmedo

Volvo Cars – a very special “Thank You!” to some very special people.
The Volvo car lover’s get-together in Little River-Academy, Texas, yesterday, Saturday October 16, 2021, was a rollicking good time as folks rolled in from near and far to celebrate our bond with the Volvo brand.
Volvos from the years 1958 through 2016 were nestled under the massive ancient oak trees surrounding the palatial grounds of the Little River Yacht Club same being the spectacular ranch home of our host, Tommy Daniel. Thanks Dr. Daniel.
Yes, we saw some “unique” vehicles such as the mail delivery Jeep-like buggy with a monster Volvo B230 engine producing almost 500 horsepower and Volvo 850 sedan making over 400 horsepower with five raging cylinders.
We also were amazed by the “Laying of the Hands”. A 1974 142 that had no problems enroute refused to start. A gentleman with almost thirty years of managing a Volvo Parts Department looks under the hood – “Say, where does this loose vacuum hose connect?”. Vroom! All is well.
Those very special people and their Volvos are listed below.
Thank you all.
George Dill
