Enjoy these pictures of the Salado Meet on 20 July, 2002.


The Pace Park Pavillion in Salado, Texas, filled to near-capacity as Al Ringle explains how easy it was to change his ES from automatic to stick!

Al introduces Alen Hewson (center) as the new Sec/Treasurer.

Trophies wait to be awarded.

Doyle Beilstein receives yet another trophy for his shiny 242GT as he shakes with Alen Hewson while Gary Sievert (Senior Concours Judge) demonstrates photogenicity.

Out-going Sec/Treasurer Ann Tofft accepts the People's Choice Award for her immaculate 965.

People's Choice, Best of Show, whatever. Ann and Walter Tofft are winners in every way!

Ethan Fogg all the way from New York to win big in Texas!

Al adds another dust-catcher to his ES cache.

Nancy Kost will need to rearrange the furniture at home in Copperas Cove to make a place for another Volvo Prize!

Al Ringle brought his picture board of past and current projects including a 544 and a roadster B from Morris Garage!

Doyle tries to sell Jon and MaryJane Howes 600 quarts of AstroShield while Ann supervises.

Jon performs expert Concours inspections on two sparkling ES's.

A very nice 245 keeping cool in the shade.

Yawning Volvos napping in the shadows.

A 1937 Vol... - wait a minute!!!

The Salado Village Police Chief visits the Volvos enroute to get the back-hoe.

Check out the illegal front plate on this fine P220.

We chased away the girl's volley ball team to hang the banner - darn!
