Swedish car day at XXX Root Beer, Issaquah

It’s not often you see photos of a Saab event somewhere on the other side of the world and can place yourself right there on location. Not for me, at least. I live on an island miles from anywhere but the Aussie mainland and New Zealand, which kinda limits my opportunities.
XXX Root Beer, a fine dining establishment in Issaquah, WA, are known for their automotive gatherings and given that it was the tail end of winter, they felt it fitting to call the Scandinavians in for a get together.

If you’ve been reading this blog (or TS, more accurately) for a while then you might recognise the XXX Root Beer sign and the sight of a bunch of Saabs in front of it might ring some bells, too.
This was the location for The Great TS Pacific Northwest Meetup back in September 2008.
I stumbled across a file over at Flickr for this most recent meetup and it was great to look through and see some of the same vehicles there again. That black C900 with the orange stripe, for instance, belongs to Kevin M, one of the writers for the AutoSavant website.
I hope you guys had a great time together with some of the Volvo fellas. I’m sure it was a little chillier than our meetup back in September, but then that’s what the famous Saab HVAC system is there for, right?
