IntSaab 2016 Programme

It’s now less than two weeks until the International Saab Meeting 2016 (IntSaab 2016) in Linköping – Vadstena, Sweden. IntSaab is a yearly Saab meeting “on tour” in different countries. Last year it was held in Norway, the year before in Poland and so on.

Read more about IntSaab2016 here at SaabsUnited.

The focus, or theme, for IntSaab 2016 is the beginning and early history of Saab cars. As you may know, the first Saab wasn’t built in Trollhättan. The UrSaab was built in 1946 at the Saab airplane workshop in Linköping and the premiere display of Saab 92 was held in 1947 at the Saab staff restaurant Terrassen in Linköping as well. Saab 95 was also assembled in Linköping.

IntSaab 2016 has 600+ registered participants from all over the world. There will be pre-tours from different cities in Sweden, starting Monday-Tuesday, where the guests travel in their Saabs and are shown to some of the most beautiful places in our country (on the way to IntSaab 2016).

Friday and Saturday is filled with activities and events in the cities of Vadstena and Linköping. Sunday 14th of August there will be an open Saab meeting and market at the Vadstena castle (yes, we’ve booked a castle). This will be the largest Saab meet in Sweden 2016, with approx. 1 500-2 000 visitors.

Well, it’s over. We came from the North West Branch, Saab Owners Club of Great Britain, and we had a great time! Following superb co-operation from Karl and others, which included the possible hire of a 9-5 Aero, which I drive at home, we opted for a Hertz rent car cutting (we thought) our travel. We kitted our Toyota Auris Hybrid with extra, badges front and back with a Saab Griffin logo and a message saying, Pretend Saab. And at the rear ‘Pretend it’s a Saab’. Arriving at the Swedish Royal Air Force Museum Club Marshalls stepped out in front… Read more »
