As per some discussion the other day, the first post from someone who wasn't managing the site was 25th August about 10 years ago.

So happy 10th birthday to VPCUK. (Volvot5 or whatever you want to call it )

Lets all reminisce on our most memorable moments together and maybe the things we could have done rather than been on here

My favourite thing here has to be the members, many are great people, some are ££££ing loons and completely crazy (but in a good way).

Helping to run this site over the last few years has had its interesting moments, its great moments, its stressful moments and extremely sad and upsetting moments but I'm still here and so are many of you. (Probably to spite me... [Read More]

Yeah I know, I know it's only June. However as we have members far and wide we thought we'd post up this years do and get some ideas for this years location.

What we know so far - Date 13th December.

Ideas for location that we've had suggested so far are as follows

Ireland - Nobber to be precise

Please get your suggestions in that way we can secure something early and get cheap hotels etc.

Power run day at HLM Bromsgrove on their Dynojet dyno (single roller)
35 of your English pounds in cash (1 pound surcharge for cards) on the day will secure you 3 runs including a print out on their rolling road.

It is assumed that the cars running on the dyno will have oil and water in the correct amounts in the right places beforehand, even so all owners will have to sign a disclaimer (full T&Cs available from HLM) so if your car does for some reason split it guts/rods or other important parts HLM are not liable.

It seems like the frosty Swedish breakfast has been canned (I couldn't find it in the calendar), but I did find a meet called "Volvo Special" taking place on WEDNESDAY 22 OCT 2014 18:00-23:00.

I'm going to try to make it, just wondered if anyone else will be making the trip...

Also, it looks like the SAABs have been dumped!!!
