2013 Garage Sale Celebrating 50 Years of ipd

2013-01-09 - ipd staff

June 19, 2013

In celebration of 50 years of business, we had a few additional features to our annual garage sale event held May 18-19, 2013. We had a huge turnout and hopefully some great memories were created. This video is a recap of the events of that day.

Help ipd commemorate 50 years of business by being part of Volvo history! To celebrate, we've added some new features to this years event. Some of the new features include a car show and vendor display area and a 50 year Volvo display from 1963-2013 featuring 50 iconic Volvo cars. A new Show-n-Shine area will be added where enthusiasts can show off their Volvo and a swap meet area to obtain those hard to find parts. We're also adding a Sunday cruise to the Oregon coast and a tech talk session at a local dyno. Check out the specifics for each event below. If you have specific questions, email Chris directly at chris@ipdusa.com.

50 Years of Volvo Display

ipd is on a mission to gather Volvos from 1963-2013 to put on display to celebrate 50 years of ipd one for, and from each year ipd has been in business. We've put together a spreadsheet below of cars that are already comitted to be in the 50 year lineup. These cars are not part of the car show portion of our event in the main parking lot, but will still be on full display!  As part of our 50th anniversary, we are attempting to gather 50 Volvos -- one for, and from each year ipd has been in business. That means we're seeking 50 nice examples for the display - one each from 1963-2013. Our goal is to gather a comprehensive, varied collection of models representing the largest breadth of Volvos possible. They don't have to be perfect show cars (we won't turn those away though!) but ideally we'd like to have nice clean original examples when possible. If you have a Volvo in this range that you think fits the bill please contact Cameron Daline at cameron@ipdusa.com with information and pictures of your car.

We're especially seeking some of the more rare, limited production models and will give these priority in our quest for a comprehensive collection. That mean is you have one of the following models we'd really like to include your car!

  • PV Duett
  • Any 1963 model
  • Amazon 123 GT
  • 262C
  • S90/V90

Please note that once we have the spots filled we will update the chart below with the car and owner's initials. Please do not submit your car for consideration if you cannot be in attendance the day of the Garage Sale -- Saturday May 18th 2013.

Charity - Parkinsons Resources of Oregon

Some of you may know that Richard Gordon, founder of ipd, was recently diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease. Because this hits close to home for us at ipd, we'd like to show our support and appreciation to him by bringing more awareness to the Volvo community and support a local Parkinsons foundation. Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon (PRO) has partnered with ipd for this event. PRO helps patients and caregivers manage this complex disease with helpful programs and services. They are dedicated to meeting the support needs of the Parkinson’s community of Oregon and Southern Washington. With your support, we're excited to raise money to help this worthy organization provide better resources for those individuals living each day with PD. For more information about PRO you can visit them here www.parkinsonsresources.org.

Marco will be hosting a tech session at PSI dyno facility located in Hillsboro, Oregon from 8:00am - 12:00pm. We will not be tuning cars. This is a free tech talk session where Marco will have a car on the dyno explaining and demonstrating his tuning methods.

Marco is a world class tuner and has worked with manufacturers like Volvo, Saab, Ford and Porsche developing electronic systems and primarily engine management. Now is your chance to learn from the worlds best Volvo tuning provider.
