We are many, We are SAAB: Warsaw, Poland

And here we continue with the We are many, We are SAAB worldwide gatherings – this story we received from Poland, thanks Jeremi and Marcin.

  • A broader update will follow, but this is just for you to know that our “We are many, we are Saab” event in Warsaw, Poland, was an astounding success – and great fun!
    Despite a rapid breakdown in the weather – after many relatively warm weeks we got a sudden bout of cold wind and snow from Scandinavia 😀 – the attendance was beyond expectations. Over 200 cars and 300 people showed up at the parking of the Cargo Terminal of the Warsaw Airport (who generously allowed as to gather there). 
    Despite it being the start of the winter holiday season in Poland, Saab fans came from all over Poland, driving many hundred kilometres to congregate on this special occassion. We’ve had all kinds of Saabs, from the very newest 9-5s and ’11 9-3s, through YS3Fs, YS3Ds, a fair share of 9000, a swarm of 900, and no less than three 99s! The many two-strokes and 96 V4s Poland is known for in Saab circles had to stay in the garages unfortunately.
    The Saab spirit permeated the gathering, with us sharing coffee, cake and regional specialities, all the while getting photographed, filmed and talking to the media. I guess both them and we ourselves were surprised how MANY we are.
    I hope all the other events around the globe went just as well, and I hope we shall make the impact we hope for.

 

We are many, We are SAAB: TAIWAN. UPD!

45 cars were present at the meeting in Northern Taiwan! By the way – it is amazing to see the weather in different parts of the planet 😉

Thanks Mars!

UPD! Alan sent us information about a rally in Central Taiwan

Excellent weather and gathering 25 Saab cars.
Another four cars even moved to the highest road of Taiwan, 3275m with 6 Celsius.

We are many, We are SAAB : FINLAND

Here is the story about the gathering in Finland by Petteri!

  • Saab Club of Finland organized a WeAreSAAB meeting in Tampere.
    We had 120 cars and 250-300 participants, which was perhaps slightly less than expected, but that didn’t make it a lesser meeting in any way. The meeting was well organized and the rows of Saabs sure looked great on this bright winter day.The weather was rather chilly with -8C and a biting breeze. Luckily the club had organized a tent and a “soup cannon” so it was possible to spend some time shielded from the wind, eating some wonderful meat soup for lunch.

    We started at 11, had lunch, listened to some short speeches, took photos, talked a lot of Saab Talk, met many Saab friends and made new ones. Unlike some greater meetings, we didn’t hire a plane for photos but used a skylift instead. 🙂 At 14 it was time to line up and make a short convoy before heading home.

    I can’t speak for all of us, but at least I had a great time and I could feel the Saab Spirit was there.

    Cheers, Petteri

SaabsUnited.com – SaabsUnited.fr – Saablog.ru…

Sometime ago SaabsUnited became available in French. The idea was to share the information of the SU with our french speaking readers. The content of the SU.fr is quite similar to the content of the main SU.

So the similar idea is here – to make SU materials available for russian speaking Saab fans. We’re happy to launch the Saablog.ru! This will also help  us to gather interesting information from russian speaking world as saablog.ru will share its info with SU.com via SU crew!

At the moment the authors are me and Nikolay Kachev, who’s also responsible for the technical support. The appearance is quite similar to the SU and most of the features are also availabe.

Welcome!! www.saablog.ru
