Show N' Shine Parking-  CALLING ALL VOLVOS!  If your car is not featured in the main parking lot, that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to be seen! Cars in the Show N' Shine will be across the street from ipd in the parking lot of MESD.

This year we've teamed up with Nursingale, a small 501 (c) 3 Portland based pediatric non-profit. Nursingale is a fantastic organization dedicated to helping medically fragile children and young adults attain the highest quality of life possible by providing in-home, family-centered nursing care with an emphasis on keeping families together.  

Nursingale is the only non-profit provider of home-based skilled pediatric nursing care for medically fragile children and young adults in Oregon. The clients receiving services require extensive and skilled care by licensed Registered Nurses (RN) and licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) under the direct written orders of the client's physician. Their clients have been diagnosed with serious and rare medical conditions including bronchomalacia, Prune Belly Syndrome, chronic renal and lung failure, spastic Cerebral Palsy, muscular atrophy, myotubular myopathy, Epidermolysis Bullosa and obstructive apnea. These children and young adults are dependent on technology such as ventilators, tracheotomies, vest airway clearance systems, feeding tubes, pulse oximeters, supplemental oxygen, and power wheelchairs. Nursingale’s home based nursing program is a great alternative to institutional and foster home care for persons with complex disabilities. For more information please visit

ipd is very excited to work with Nursingale helping bring awareness to the Volvo community about all the wonderful services they provide for children and young adults. Nursingale will be on site during the Garage Sale event ready to talk to you and enjoy all the festivities!

How I would love to attend this event. Unfortunately,crossing the Atlantic is one of the few things that is impossible in a 240 Sedan. It would be very nice if ipd opened an outlet in the UK,then you could see some of the beautiful vehicles on this side of the pond. Hope everyone enjoys the day. Best wishes. Bryan.

We are working on getting a few of the local hotels to cut a deal for those attending garage sale. We are usually able to get a discount code for a room. We will be continually updating this blog with information as it becomes available so keep checking back.

My friend wanted to move to oregon, and also I have a friend who lives very close to there. I'm really tempted to go and ask him CAN I LIVE AT YOUR HOUSE FOR A DAY and drive my S60R all the way up.
