2014 Canadian SAAB Owner’s Convention Recap

saab grp 1

Hello everyone,

We had a wonderful inaugural Canadian SAAB Owner’s Convention in Toronto, Canada this weekend. We are grateful for the support of SAAB owner’s from all over Canada as well as those who traveled from as far as Kansas, Wisconsin, Missouri, Rhode Island, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey to name a few from the United States. Without your support, this event would not have been a success as you have made it.

The weekend was filled with great seminars. One of the highlights being the SAAB Car Museum seminar by
Peter Backstrom. We were honored that he was able to join us for this convention.

There were many great cars from vintage to the current new generation 9-5. SAAB owners have an overwhelming pride in their cars. Too many pictures to include in this post, though.

A special thanks to all of our sponsors who helped make this event possible:
Presenting Sponsor: SAAB Parts North America, Stage 9, SAAB of London/Ultimate Automobiles, Factory Tire,
Novus Tech, Concours Touch Auto Detailing, SAAB Club of Canada, SAAB Club of North America and NINES Magazine, Aktive Motors, BOOST Customs, Hot Rod Scott’s, and ONPOINT Dyno & Race Service.

This convention was organized as an opportunity for SAAB owners to get together to share their love and passion for this iconic brand. In the process, friendships were made that will last a lifetime. The SAAB community has weathered a tough few years. The brand is as unique as its owners and for some, their loyalty is immeasurable.

Thank you again to all who attended. Hope you had as much fun as we had in meeting all of you.

Very professional set-up, well done =)
Mr Bäckström has SAAB stories to tell, which is gold for anyone interested in Saab history, for a foreseeable future =)
