Saab Splat CardsHave you been Splatted? 

If you have come to this site because you have found a card looking like this under a wiper then you are the victim of a campaign to alert Saab owners of the UKs largest and oldest Saab Club. (Apologies for molesting your beloved Saab!)  Since the demise of Saab you might feel you are alone and isolated however here you have found a community of passionate and dedicated Saab owners and followers. With a top quality bi-monthly magazine, members discounts, technical assistance and events around the country club membership has a lot to offer. Click here or on the image for more details.

The Saab Club of Great Britain took place on the 25th October at Humberside Saab.  We would like to thank Humberside Saab for their generosity in allowing us to use their showroom and for the fantastic hospitality.

We also wish to congratulate Dr Os Reid and Adrian Summerfield on their appointment to the board.

There are many branch events planned. Look in the latest copies of driver or the Events Calendar for more details. 

 

 Here we are at Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Shown which was at the NEC between the 14th-16th November.  Thanks to Elli for all his hard work.

saab2014Production has started!

SAAB (or rather NEVS - National Electric Vehicle Sweden) are producing cars again. After a gap of two years the production lines are moving again. Sadly cars are only going to the Chinese and Swedish markets, at least to start with.

For more detail read this article.

SAAB INTERNATIONAL 2013

The Saab International was a tremendous success! Over 800 people came to Wicksteed Park to enjoy the 2013 International Meeting of Saab Clubs, over a fantastic August weekend. There are now photos of the international in SOC photo gallery.

 NATIONAL RALLY 2012

Thanks to everyone who turned out and supported our National Rally at Wicksteed Park last weekend. It proved to be a very popular location with the biggest attendance for some time.

 

We counted well over 200 cars on Saturday and 150 on Sunday, plus a whole load of us camping as well.

 

The range of cars was just fantastic, from a 1952 92B to a 2010 9-5 and including six Sonetts! Erik Carlsson said that he had not seen such a great line up of Saabs for a long time and that he thoroughly enjoyed himself.

 

The weather was kind to us too.

Thanks also to everyone who helped us leading up to and during the weekend. We could not have done it without you.


A warm welcome to all of the new members that joined our Club over the weekend.

We are Many, we are Saab

Many thanks to all our members who turned out to support this event. What a great success with over 250 cars and 500 people!

Erik Carlsson who joined us at Cranfield said "this has been the best day that I have had for ages and it has been fantastic to meet so many nice people"

 

We joined over 40 countries putting on more than 100 meetings in showing our support for Saab and all former employees. Let's all hope that potential investors will act soon to save Saab again.
