Saab Turbo X Euromeeting 2011

Do you have a Saab Turbo X?

Are you one of the unfortunate Sith Lords who bought the wrong car, something other than a Turbo X?

Do you not have a Saab Turbo X but lust after Saab’s modern Black Turbo?

Do you just enjoy the thought of a bunch of Saab Turbo X’s gathering in the same place?

Some Turbo X owners in France are hosting the first ever Saab Turbo X Euromeeting in May. You don’t have to own a Turbo X to go along, though obviously that’s the focus of the gathering.

They have a website (in French) and a Facebook page alrady set up for the event and invite anyone interested in the Turbo X to check out the event and come along.

The following information was sent along by Leigh M, one of the organisers.

I think whenever you speak of the Turbo X Id refer to it as a ‘Droolfest’.

That’s awesome! Should do something like this in the US. I see they got my car with her britches up as a gallery. Very cool. 🙂

Just passed 40K miles on my X! What a car – heading out in the snow this weekend in my new Conti-Extreme DWS – yee-ha!
