Given the recent problems on this forum, I'm going to be posting the information in segments.
Not as much fun, but hopefully it works.
If you'd rather see all the information in one post, I've also posted on the other fourms.
Here's a link to one:

In the next replies, I'll copy and paste the information from the event flyer...

The Event Flyer copy and paste:
We will be upfront about this: there are no Volvos on display at the Museum, other than the ones that members will be driving to this event. But if you want to shore up your knowledge of automotive history and learn about the technological ancestors of your Volvo, this is the event for you. The Museum is biased towards early Ford products (Model T & Model A), but since Ford owns Volvo, I guess that's the tie-in, if you need one. Seriously, if you want to learn about automotive history, this is the best place in the Sacramento Valley to do so.

We will have a reserved parking area outside the museum for our members, where "Volvo" will definitely be spoken. After the museum tour, which should take about 90 min., attendees can visit the Museum's gift shop and/or gather outside in our reserved area and meet fellow Volvo enthusiasts. Around Noon, we will adjourn to a nearby restaurant for lunch. Lunch is optional and is a separate cost from the museum visit restaurant choice will be by popular vote after the tour, please bring your location suggestions, we'll bring ours.

We will be receiving a special discounted admission rate, the maximum charge is $5/person. A local VCOA event, cheap (cheaper than going to the movies!), and it won't take a whole day. What more could you ask for?

To be continued...
