Members of Volvo Sports America (www.vsa.org) and their classic Volvos will gather Aug. 23, 2014, during the Milwaukee Masterpiece’s Club Saturday festivities. According to Jim Perry of Larsen, Wis., president of the Wisconsin chapter of the club, members of the Volvo Sports America (VSA) club from across the U.S. will be showing their classic and out-of-production Volvos.

“What started off as an idea to have our local Volvo owners attend Club Saturday at the Masterpiece quickly morphed into a decision by the Volvo Sports America president Tony D’Agostino to hold a full-blown National Meet,” Perry said. “We’re delighted we’ll be able to share our passion for vintage and out-of-production Volvos with Masterpiece attendees. They will see some of the best Volvos we have to offer; they’ll come from both coasts, as well the heartland.”

“We’re pleased with VSA’s decision to hold their national meet at the Masterpiece,” said Leon Flagg, chairman of the Masterpiece Ltd. “We also welcome Fields Auto Group, Waukesha, Wis., which is providing support to VSA and the Milwaukee Masterpiece for this important occasion, our 10th edition.”

Volvo Sports America is headquartered in New Jersey with international membership. The club is dedicated the preservation and restoration of all out-of-production Volvos, with an emphasis on the 1961-1973 classic 1800 series cars.

The Masterpiece Ltd. is organized and operated exclusively to support other public charities including but not limited to those operating in southeastern Wisconsin that provide medical and social service care and relief to underprivileged children and families through various motor vehicle-related fundraising events.
