I’ll post some detailed information from Swedish Car Day here in Boston tomorrow morning. Right now I need to catch some Z’s.
Suffice to say, however, that the event was absolutely OUTSTANDING and a highlight in what has been a banner year both for me personally and Saabs United as a website.
They had 202 official registrations for the event, but the actual number of cars on display was probably closer to around 220 or so. I arrived at the event at 10am and the grounds were pretty full, but cars were still arriving up to an hour and a half later.
Of course, another highlight after around 5 years of knowing one another, was to finally meet the Eggman…..and others….
Thanks to everyone who was so wonderfully hospitable in coming up, saying hello and generally just sharing your stories and your cars with me. You were all so very kind and I apologise if there’s anyone I didn’t get to say hello to.
And second, to the crew at Charles River Saab in general, and to Pierre in particular – you folks are absolute legends. Events like this are the lifeblood of a community and you did your organisation and the Saab brand proud on the weekend.
Thanks so much for inviting me to come and participate in this event.
As I said, more to come….
