Our diligent member Mark McCourt from Vermont, was at the Swedish Car Day celebration at the Larz Anderson Automobile Museum in Brookline, Massachusetts the other day and of course showed not only his beautiful C70 but also material from the club.

It was the Roger Moore movies about The Saint that made Volvo P1800 famous, but of course the Volvo C70 has also been used in many movies! Click the image with the C70 in the Bond film 'Die another day' and see the C70 in various movies. If you are a member of our club you can read the story written exclusively for us by Volvo´s Bob Austin about how the C70 became a part of the movie 'The Saint' with Val Kilmer!

It is with great sadness we heard the news today that Volvo will close the factory in Uddevalla in 2013. We are very pleased that we were given the opportunity to convene the meeting with the formation of our club at the plant and with the support you gave us. We think of all the talented car builders and hope of course that all staff should be able to find a good transition to other jobs at Volvo or elsewhere. The Swedish Volvo C70 club send our best wishes to all staff and with our activities we will contribute to preserving the memory of the good work that is accomplished in the Uddevalla plant.
The Uddevalla plant; the worlds most beautifully located car factory!
On the Saturday 28/5 60 C70-enthusiasts in 32 C70 cars ignored the rainy clouds and gathered at the Pininfarinas car factory in Uddevalla and constituated the Swedish Volvo C70-club:
We heard Anders Gunnarsson tell us about the process of creating the exterior design:
