From my email...

Hi George,

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to Georgetown, due to family commitments. I'd love to be there & bring along some of my "air-filter kits" like I had at Marble Falls last Oct. I'm still selling them on EBay. My '68 122 project is progressing (but slowly), in the middle of a paint job at the moment. It will be for sale when finished, if you know anyone interested. Sorry I can't be there, maybe next time. Take care, Bill Langdon contact blangdon at gvtc dot com


Bill's latest design for his permanent air filters to fit SU carbs makes installation and maintenance a snap.

Whoooeeee - what a great turnout - Volvo old and new, Volvo Lovers young and younger.

Folks from the Texas Panhandle and rollers from Houston, Dallas area, Austin, San Antonio and even Little River, Texas!

Thanks to all attendees and share your pics so the Volvo World can enjoy great cars, great weather, great food and a great cast of Volvo aficionados in the truest form.

Thanks.

George,

Thank you for hosting this great event. I very much enjoyed seeing many Volvos, especially the vintage cars, and talking to the owners. It is nice to see the younger folks who are driving vintage Volvos, as well as older guys like me. I saw some outstanding 1800s, 240s. I look forward to other events.

Tons of pics already on the web but many not viewable unless you are signed up on Facebook, Turbobricks, etc.

For a teaser I stole this one from the San Antonio Volvo group on FB...




More pics soon!

PS: Lou - thanks for supporting the Volvo club.
