Default Long Island/NYC Volvo owners

Hey im looking for ppl who would be interested in getting together over the summer for some volvo meets...

I have not had much luck finding any group on Long island so i figured it was time to see if we get a group of ppl together for a meet....

For those of u who live on Long Island even possible the city might know about DPA (Deer Park Ave) Alot of car clubs and alot cars meet on the strip thru the summer , Usually friday/Saturday nights... Which is one option, i was even thinking of possible talking to some other car clubs and getting in on their meets ups ...

If you guy are interested i wanna know....

Open invite to all who are willing to drive

If you know of other car groups feel free to see if we can join in idc....Im looking to get some volvo groups active on long island....

Also there are the weekly Bald Hill meets on long island where many cars/groups show up together.... This u do have to pay and is in a fenced in area with security ect. Fee is only a couple dollars..... More detail just ask....

Thank You hope we can get some things organised !!!!!

Volvos seem to have a bigger following in the Pacific North west, Cali, and up in the Northeastern sea board, above NY and South Fla. ... Besides that, there's a few stragglers here and there.

Well it is currently 83 degrees here in Orlando and no Clouds in the sky as opposed to most of the US under cold air and snow! you can def. take advantage of the weather to take your Volvos to the beach if u moved here.... Or you could all bring your own timing belt to TECHS wing party villagepc offered the other day,lol...

NYC V70 2.3L T5 (manual) owner here, i just got the car (gift) and dont know what to do with it, all i know is, it has me mesmerized and i got a 2008 Nissan Altima 3.5 with all the goodies yet im obsessed with the Volvo, its my first one, it has few dents that i plan on getting fixed, the car repainted and the engine possibly re-built (nothing wrong with the engine) i just wanna fix it up real good, throw some good rims on it, good brakes/suspension and possibly redo the interior and paint the car.

Those are my plans now i gotta make them come true, im researching all of internet but i cant get ahold of V70R bumpers and interior if possible as well as V70R rims

I cant locate parts for making my car fly down the LIE when i come to Jones Beach or Sunkin Meadow park, maybe you can help?

Lol, Hopefully you didnt move to Florida yet

Hey, Im on the swedespeed forums more than here I just joined this one I have a 2000 Volvo S80 I go to Stony Brook. I would def be more than interested in getting together for a weekly Volvo meet. Right now I go with one of my friends monday nights to an Audi/VW meet, he has a B5 S4 pretty sweet stuff but Im def in for a Volvo meet. I know exactly where DPA is and I know a bunch of people get together near the Pathmark on the southern side of DPA. Whenever your ready to set something up let me know ill be looking around for more people too. You can send me an e-mail at [email protected] if I dont respond to promptly on this forum.

Hey Sanel30, what year is your V70?

Hi Dizzy, its a 2001 V70 T5 5 speed and i love it more than my brand new (it was few months ago) Nissan Altima 3.5 SE

I just cant locate parts for it like V70R bumpers, side skirts and rims and brakes. Also i would love V70R cluster and few other parts (seats mainly) but im not going to the Volvo D(st)ealer to buy those as they are crazy expensive there. So im browsing internet and e-bay, craigslist with a possibility of coming across those.

The meet would be nice once in a while, to share the tips and admire each other's Volvos

Hey Sanel
I tried searching for you for a bit, but if you want the V70R bumpers your gonna have to pick em up used or if you want brand new, this website looks like your best chance to beat dealer price. http://www.parts.com/oemcatalog/inde...layCatalogid=0
Keep looking around though it should turn up eventually.
