FLE_8542

2017 was the most challenging Show ‘n shine in recent history with awkward weather keeping us under the cover of the clubs tents through much of the morning. Thankfully the cars and enthusiasm of the Volvo club members meant the day went ahead with the usual dedication and success.

Around 60 cars were on display, from old to new. The range of display cars was broad, covering 80 of the 90 years of Volvo. The oldest being the 1938 PV52 and the newest were two current model Volvo’s supplied by Melbourne City Volvo.

The winners of the popularly voted prizes were:
