The Saab Festival – Day 1

Hi all.

It’s 8.30 a.m. here and here’s the program for the day:

– The following facilities are open all day, with some offering tours throughout the day

Saab Factory – where they build the cars – duh
ANA Trollhattan – the GM-Saab owned dealership here in town

Saab Car Museum – free entry for all!

Today, we also have the following presentations being made. I’m going to try and get to all of them at different stages:

13.00 – The world’s most extreme Saab (ANA)
13:00 and 15.00 – Workshop diagnostics (Museum)
14.00 – Talladega 1986 (Museum)
14:15 and 16:15 – guided tour of ANA
15:00 – Saab Biopower (ANA)
16:00 – LaCarrera Panamerica Saab 96 (Museum)
17:00 – Swede Team Motor (ANA)

I’ll definitely be at The SDCC sales, the world’s most extreme Saab, a guided tour of ANA, La Carrera Panamerica and the Swede Team Motor presentations.

Sounds like a full day. The stuff that I’ll miss today will be on again tomorrow at different times, so I’ll catch it then.

See you all on the other side!

  1. Hey swade, what’s in the SAAB show bag? Could you get some pics of the Linear (or whatever replaces it).


  2. Argg’ folks!

    ’bout stating the colour (ref*) as saffron!?!

    To me saffron will have a more distinct yellowish orange touch and feel… and this colour I deem of as being more “sharp” in a highly saturated yellow tone…

    I’d call it something else than saffron ye pirates;> {…of cab’ian seas!-}



  3. Make sense. They lost so much money on the Smart operation, that GM will buy it and rebadge it as a Saab 9-1. 😉

  4. Bad news from Germany, again:
    Saab sold 415 units, 28% less that in May 2006. This year’s sales are down by 24%, to 1698, as compared with Jan-May 2006. The figures for the whole market are -11% and -10%.
    Swade, can you do something about it (neing so close to Germany at the moment)?
    But hey, if we count smart’s sales (new 9-1, remember) together with Saab’s preformance, the numbers look much better, at leas in absolute terms! 😉 (smart sold 3043 ‘cars’ in May)

  5. I don’t suppose the SDCC outlet has a web presence, e-mail address, snail mail address, anything? Course, I suppose NOS doesn’t go back as far as I would like anyway:-(

  6. Swade, dude 🙂

    PLEASE find out about that Snow Silver colour and if it is indeed going to be the same colour that is on the Aero-X 🙂 Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaase 🙂
