Summer, Long Weekends And The Open Road

As we head into the summer months and people look to long weekends and holidays, it’s time to look at venturing out onto the open roads again. This weekend is for Canadians, the Canada Day long weekend which celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act 1867 (today called the Constitution Act, 1867, in Canada), which united three colonies into a single country called Canada within the British Empire. Originally called Dominion Day, the name was changed to Canada Day in 1982 when the Canada Act was passed. Canada Day is celebrated throughout Canada and internationally and is commonly referred to as Canada’s birthday, so happy birthday Canada.

With next weekend being the Fourth Of July or Independence Day long weekend in the USA, this brings us to a busy couple of weeks of driving and enjoying what Saab has given us. In North America or at least where I am in Canada, these weekends turn into crazy retail shopping weekends and quick trips to either sides of the borders. So what better time then now to plan a road trip away from border line ups?

The best way to enjoy your Saab is to drive it, get to know your back roads take the long way home, plan some trips with friends. I know our local Saab Club SCWC is planning to get together over the long weekend to enjoy their cars together, what do you have planned?

We’ve spent a lot of time in the past couple of weeks talking about the new possible directions of Saab and have had a lot of heated debate about it all which is to be expected. Lets go back to basics here and talk about the cars for a minute and how you plan to enjoy your Saab. Over the summer holidays, do you plan on buying another Saab? New or used doesn’t matter here in my question as I think for dealers, both are equally important. Where do you plan to take your Saab over the holidays and long weekends? Are you taking part in any of the big Saab events coming up? Are you going to do a Hirsch or Maptun upgrade? Essentially, what do you have planned for your Saab, yourself and just for fun.

My intent here is to be off topic and just discus our cars and driving, not so much the business. Lets have fun with this and share together.
