'Our Best Stand in a Decade'
Our Best Stand in a Decade - The Volvo Enthusiasts Club Founded in 1989 end a year of celebrations for the 90th Birthday of Volvo with a spectacular display depicting 'The Volvo Family'. Supported by Volvo Truck UK who kindly brought along their 1967 Volvo F86 the first Volvo truck to imported into the UK, which they purchased some years ago and fully restored. They also brought along a ED250 Mini Digger to represent Volvo Construction in our Volvo family. Volvo Cars were represented by the 'original' 1962 Volvo P1800 used by the late Sir Roger Moore in TV's The Saint owned by Club Founder Kevin Price. The car was actually built at Jensen Motors in West Bromwich and represented the England Volvo Build - with 1800 Bodyshell built in Scotland by Pressed Steel until 1969. The Volvo's Built in the Dutch Plant was represented by a Volvo 1983 360GLT with only 10,000 miles on the clock - owned by our Chairman and Hereditary Founder Matt Stadden. The Belgium Plant at Gent was represented by Alan and Pat Orgill's Volvo C30. Finally Volvo's home, Sweden was represented by Andy Marshall's very original 1954 PV444. Many thanks to Terry Court, Dave Stadden, Cath & Steve Cropper, Sean & Jim Skeet and Chris Tye for all their help with building and manning the Club Stand, plus huge thanks for the help and support of Volvo Truck UK, who this year also celebrated 50 years of Trucks in the UK. A truly great show for the Club. Thanks to everyone who came and visited us. See you all next year at the 2018 NEC Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show
