Well, only a small, hardy group made the meet today on a raw, cold day here in Nashville, but we did it!
Our plan: Rendezvous at at the Nashville location of our local independent service group, Eurofix, and drive to Centennial Park in downtown Nashville for a photo at one of our most recognizable local landmarks, the full-scale replica of the Parthenon of ancient Greece.
Robert, Mark, Kathleen, Daniel, Ramona, Walter and I got to know each other a bit while the sky spit little bits of snow mixed with rain. Robert and Mark were driving Robert’s C900 and 9-5, respectively; Mark left his 9-3 convertible at home due to the conditions. Kathleen, Ramona and Walter the Golden Retriever were looking smart in Kathleen’s 9-5. Daniel, one of the Saab techs at Eurofix, signed on as the ringer with his modded 900 SPG, and we were off.
I was planning to drive the “new” 1991 900 turbo convertible, but a freak failure of my garage door mechanism precluded me from getting the car out today, and it was just as well. With the day being as nasty as it was, the 9-5 was the right call.
Here’s the group at the Parthenon. I’m looking forward to a more leisurely meeting in warmer times. Click through for more photos.
Vive la Saab!!
The starting point. Thanks again to Eurofix for hosting.
Interaction. That’s Robert on the left and Daniel on the right.
Check out the sweet mods on Daniel’s SPG. He figures that he’s got 250HP on tap here. He’s got bigger air intake plumbing, exhaust mods for lower back pressure, higher capacity injectors, a 9000 fuel rail and an uprated intercooler. Noice!!! It sounds low and Saaby. Well done, sir!!
This is what’s inside the Parthenon. The faithful replica of the Athena Parthenos is said to be the largest indoor statue in the Western world.
