Mike gave us these words
Around 260 cars and over 500 people turned out in support of the “We are many, we are Saab” 5 regional events here in the UK.
Meetings were held in Cumbria, Lancashire, Derbyshire, Bedfordshire & Devon with some Club members making round trips of over 500 miles to join us on this cold but sunny January day. We even had one visitor from Denmark.
At the Saab GB headquarters in Cranfield we had the pleasure of the one and only Mr. Saab himself, Erik Carlsson, who enjoyed meeting all the Saab enthusiasts and spent most of the time having his photograph taken or signing various bits of cars. We were also fortunate to have the MD of Saab GB, and newly formed company Saab Parts UK, Charles Toosey and his family at this event. More than 130 cars attended with models from the 60’s right up to new 9-5 purchased just 4 days before.
The other 4 events were equally successful from a scenic tour starting at the Angel of the North to meetings at Independent and Saab dealerships in Glossop, Yelverton & Blackburn. We had a 96 V4 on the northern run that is possibly the oldest one in the world, made in 1966.
A fantastic turn out over the whole country and hundreds of smiling faces everywhere you looked. Many other stories can be found at www.uksaabs.co.uk
