Swedish Car Day - August 28, 2010
Sunday, 08 August 2010 14:45

The 11th annual Swedish Car Day is scheduled to take place at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, MA on Sunday, August 29.

This year's "day" has actually been extended to two days, with the first day (Saturday, August 28th) consisting of driving instruction with In Control Crash Prevention Training. In Control and its race-bred instructors will put participants through their exciting half-day program. This will include instruction in ABS braking technique, steering control by way of a slalom, tailgating and backing demonstrations, and the very exciting 60 mph lane change maneuver, also known as the “moose avoidance maneuver” in Sweden. The driving instruction will take place in Saabs and Volvos and will be presented at the South Weymouth Naval Air Station.

The second day will consist of the the Swedish Car Day show in Brookline. It's the event's first summertime SCD, and special guests will include Steven Wade (from SaabsUnited) and Dave Burnham, who will be showing his 1971 Volvo 142 GT, a totally unique Volvo.

Registration for SCD and the In Control driving instruction is open now!
