One of my mates in dealerland is Darryl Carl from New Salem Saab. Many of you will have enjoyed his open and honest comments on this site and will know that his heart lies well and truly with the Saab brand.
NSS is one of the oldest family-owned dealerships in the US and when you talk about people doing it tough over the last 12-18 months, few have done it tougher than the folks at New Salem Saab. The dedication that it’s taken for them to keep the doors open through the Saab sale will one day be the stuff of legend.
The good news is that they’re still here and to celebrate, New Salem Saab is teaming up with the New England Saab Association and Goldwing Recycled Saab Parts to present the Saab Fall Festival.
- Date: October 23, 2010
- Time: 0900 to 1700
- Location: New Salem Saab, 2017 Central Avenue, Albany, NY

Some more details…..
The Dyno sessions will vary in cost depending on the car and the age of the owner:
- $60 for non-Saabs
- $40 for Saabs
- $25 for Saabs owned by someone under 20 years of age
There will also be a bit of tongue-in-cheek fun with the chance to smash up a Swedish vehicle from another manufacturer (and no, it’s not a Koenigsegg!). Proceeds from this particular exercise will go towards the Crisman Memorial Scholarship, a regular beneficiary of NESA fundraising and a very worthwhile cause.
If you’re in the area, I really hope you’ll be able to get along and enjoy the day. It’ll be a great way to check out the new Saab 9-5, see New SAlem Saab’s facilities, support the Crisman Memorial and of course, catch up with all your Saab buddies at the same time.
Tell Darryl I said G’day!
