Another weekend saw a few final Saab Support Convoys take place (I don’t think there’s any more scheduled, but I could be wrong).
One of those was the convoy in Memphis, Tennessee, where 15 cars and around 24 people gathered to celebrate Saab’s sale to Spyker and show their support for the company.
A note from Barry L:
In spite of the fact that “Super Bowl Sunday” is the most celebrated “holiday” in America (other than New Year’s Day), Memphis/Mid-South area SAAB owners and enthusiasts came together to show their support and celebration of SAAB’s INDEPENDENCE, and its saviour, Spyker.
Fifteen vehicles strong, we gathered in far east Memphis and discussed all matters related to SAAB, then drove 20 miles to the Pyramid Arena, on the banks of the Mississippi River. Check out the 1990 Saab 900…IMMACULATE!
There, we celebrated “SAAB Independence Day”….our first annual celebration of that event. January 26th of each year will be a day of celebration here in Memphis.
We had a great time. Thanks to all who participated and sacrificed a portion of this hallowed holiday in the USA.
BTW: On unanimous approval of our group, we will be forming a SAAB Club for the Memphis/Mid-South area. More details will be provided once finalised.
Note: Big thanks to Gary McConnell for the artwork.
