"Volvo Village is proud to be the sponsor of the 2011 Volvo Club of America Florida regional show to be held in Safety Harbor FL. We have been the Volvo retailer in Clearwater, under the same owner, for 40 years and stock a nice selection of new and pre-owned Volvos, as well as a complete parts and service department," says Kevin Riley, General Manager, Volvo Village- http://www.volvovillage.com/about.staff.php.
Riley also tells Volvo lovers about three vintage 1800s that can be seen at Volvo Village. “If you're in the area, stop by and look at our Volvo 1800s. We currently have three on display. One of these cars was sold here in late 1971 and traded back to us in 1974. We have owned it since then. Another, a 1973 Sport wagon, has been owned by Volvo Village since 1987. Also in our show room, we have a beautifully restored 1971 1800. I'm sure you'll like seeing these cars.”
“We are looking forward to spending the day with you on March 5. We will bring several Volvos to display, as well as a few older NOS parts,” concludes Riley.
