Are you going to be participating in a rally this coming weekend? I hope the answer is an enthusiastic YES! It doesn’t have to be a huge meet of 1000 people, it can be as little as 3 or 20, or 100. What matters is that we come together to show our support for Saab moving forward. The dealers need us now to help drive business into their dealerships, both for buying Saabs and maintaining them. Saab needs to show the future investors that we are still out there, and if they come forward and buy Saab, they will have our support. The added bonus is we get to gather a great group of people together and talk cars!
What do you do at a rally? The idea is simple. 1) If you weren’t able to order “We Are Many, We Are Saab” stickers, there is a photo available on Outside Saab that you can take to your local printer. From there, its your choice of signs, stickers or window decals. 2) Next, gather as many Saab enthusiasts as you can in one place! Some are meeting at Saab dealerships, others Ikea locations, and the final groups are meeting in large parking lots. 3) You can choose if you want to have a convoy through town, or if you just want to take some photos and chat with people in one spot. 4) If you can, we would really appreciate press releases to the major news media in your area, to gain coverage of the events. This will help Saab out tremendously through these tough times. 5) And… photos, videos, more photos, anything you can send us to post!
I understand if you’re feeling pessimistic what’s going on right now at Saab. But you have to understand that things are really moving behind the scenes! Saab is capable of resurrecting. If we all push aside our negative thoughts and focus on the positives here, we can help Saab’s positive outcome. We did it in ’10, we can do it again in ’12. We are a strong group, and together we’ve accomplished many great things. We can be very proud of what we have done. No other car company out there can boast this type of loyalty.
Up to date nformation about the rallies is always available on http://www.outside-saab.com. If you are having trouble hooking up with a rally in your area, please post a comment to this entry, and I will personally do my best to help you out!
So, I say we all take a few hours out of our busy lives, climb into our great Saab vehicles, and HIT THE ROADS! Let’s show them our heart, and that we’re still here cheering on one of the greatest auto manufacturers that ever lived. Go Saab, GO!
Thank you, each and every one of you, for helping us on this great and exciting day! Let’s make history on January 14-15th, let’s tell the people how great Saab is!
