My apologies to all interested parties for not getting on to this sooner. I didn’t realise it was coming up so close.
Saabs @ Carlisle is one of the premier events on the US Saab Owner’s calendar and it’s on this weekend – from the 21st to the 23rd May. Saabs @ Carlisle is hosted by the Central Penn Saab Club and is part of the larger Carlisle Import and Kit Nationals show at the Carlisle Fairgrounds.
Some info on the event passed on to me by Allan H:
Every year the Central Penn SAAB Club hosts North America’s largest regional Saab event as part of Carlisle Events’ Import & Kit Nationals.
It’s called [email protected] and for eight years running, owners of new and vintage Saabs have brought home the event Participation Award for the greatest number of any single make of automobile in attendance. Last year, 183 Saabs were present — more than 2nd place Volvo and 3rd place Audi combined. This is quite an achievement when you see just how many cars of all makes are present at this show every year.
2010 marks [email protected]’s 10th anniversary, and with Saab now virtually assured of a bright future, the Central Penn SAAB Club is optimistic that even more Saabs will show up than ever before. It looks like the club has set up a great event for this year, with the standard People’s Choice awards, the classic SAABarbecue dinner on Saturday night, and an all-new Drive In Movie Night. Popcorn is even included!
As an added incentive, Carlisle Events is giving away a car on Sunday. Upon entry to the event, you’ll be given a “Giveaway Car” ticket and you must be present on Sunday at 3pm to win. [email protected] is also a great place to find parts or even a deal on a whole car.
