I was at Larz Anderson a few weeks ago for the British car day. If the Swedish car day is similar, plan to be there early as it was PACKED. The best route is down 93 to 293 to Route 3, then 128/95 to Route 9 east. Google it; not a bad trip.

I'd love to attend, but it'd be a LONG day from up here. If so, I'll post again.

Now that they've moved it to August it seems to bring out a much bigger crowd. Last year they came very close to filling both fields! SAAB has a much larger presence than the Volvo crowd, but there are some cool T5's, older volvos, and crazy V8 wagons that show up.

I am looking forward to this event! Saab is definately my favorite out of the two, but, my last car (my first) was a Volvo 240 wagon. It was a great car and I wish I could have kept it! I will be interested to see some cool 240's down there as people do many different things with those cars. I think the route that was just mentioned is the one to do so lets plan on that. From what I see we have 8 cars so far?

Funny, I'll be driving my rose quartz 87 turbo to the event as well, although the paint job is well . . . aging

I am not super familiar with the Concord area, so does anyone know a convenient place (preferably close to the highway) where we can all meet before leaving for boston?

How about the park and ride off of 12s or hannaford off of 14? Both are extremely easy to get to

The large southbound rest area just before the hooksett tolls could work well

The park and ride at exit 12 is pretty small and often times full

What about the people coming from 93n to meet up with the rest of us? They would have to take route 3 and loop all the way back around to exit 12 to get on 93s

I think market basket in hooksett would be a good meeting place
It's directly off exit 10

Consider me in! As I said, I may just need to bail out at the gate to meet up with another rose quartz c900 owner
