All Swedes and their Volvos and Saabs are welcome! If you have yet to have the pleasure of attending this event, it is a very informal friendly event where Swedish cars and their owners (who may or may not be Swedish) gather in the parking lot of IKEA, near the entrance door (around row D, see the map below) and we mingle and chat the morning away until we feel the pangs of hunger and head upstairs to the second floor to purchase our lunches from the IKEA restaurant and move to a group of reserved tables for a leisurely lunch.
