The following report came in from fellow Monte Carlo owner and event organiser, Mark C:
Unfortunately bad weather was forecast for Adelaide and all the “maybes” didn’t make it. So anyway whilst we only managed three Saabs out of the ten I’d hoped for, we more than made up for this with enthusiasm!
I arrived at IKEA at 9.30 am and the first photo is my lone Monte at IKEA. Ian arrived with a 2004 9-5 about 10.00 am, with Andrew and the Aero a little later. We waited until about 10.40, then went for breakfast. When we came out, Sally and family (recently from the UK and currently Saabless) were waiting for us. It was raining and windy, but we decided to head off the Elizabeth anyway.
Fortunately the weather soon improved.
We took a scenic route from Adelaide Airport to IKEA to General Motors Holden plant in Elizabeth which builds the Holden Commodore for Australia/New Zealand, Chevrolet Lumina for the Middle East, and until recently the Pontiac G8 for the USA.
