On the way to the Saab Zone

Starting on Friday, Kiel will turn into the hottest Saab-Zone in Germany! The invasion of 9-5 NG and 9-4x is imminent. Like so many other participants who do not live around the corner, I already pack my bags today and start heading north.

Saab Zone

We have the best weather, a lot of international Saab fans and two great days ahead of us. The Rally Plates finished yesterday, a last-minute heartbeat finale. Your design is even better than the pictures, I am more than satisfied.

After my 9-5 NG is sold (I'll see him and his new owner at Pilots wanted again), this time I start in the 9-3 Aero. For a brief moment, I thought about chartering a common car at my preferred car rental. Then came an email from Jochen, whose co-driver I am, whether he should pick me up - for him a detour of many miles and just a great gesture! But I just feel like driving myself with the analogue Saab and on the abundant 620 kilometers.

It will be quiet on the blog. Sometime in the next week, when I am regenerated and my voice has weathered the days in the Saab Zone well, comes a travelogue. For all, who are not in Kiel, there is our current Instagram Account. Mark and I feed him with photos, so pure Saab fever!

A good and safe journey to Kiel for all participants and friends! See you at Pilots wanted 2018!

    The design of the Plates is really cool. The cockpit too. All NG pilots have fun!

    Enjoy these two days, Tom, as well as all other participants. Am with my thoughts. Next meal I hope to come back to Kiel.
    Have fun.

    Good morning!

    Habs did not manage to say goodbye on Saturday personally (or just to chat a bit longer)!
    I want to thank you as a "pig" again for the nice event (including delicious food)!
    Was a nice experience for me! 🙂

    ... and of course it was great to see so many "new Saabs" in one place!
    (Surely the old "Porsche-Lambo-Ferrari-AstomMartin-excursion troupe from HH" in the center of Kiel was a bit jealous) 😉 😉

      Thank you! Great that you were there! As for the Porsche-Lambo-Ferrari-AstonMartin faction: we have the more exclusive vehicles!

        Yes, it was fun (even though we were the "last" at the start and, of course, promptly behaved as "newbies"). 😉

        Only I would not think I'll do another such "short Saturday trip" (was already / still "tired" when arriving). 😉
        Almost 10 hours at the wheel and about 14 hours on the road are a bit much.
        ... then maybe in the future but also prefer two days.

        Yes, at the same time exclusive and yet suitable for everyday use.

        Very difficult to top ...

    I was on vacation at the time ... so Kiel was not possible 🙁.
    As a nice "compensation" I had a friendly SAAB NG 9-5 "meeting" at a tank in Flensburg. The driver was friendly. and nice (what else 😉), just came from Kiel (maintenance) and was on the way back to Munich. It was "only 1 SAAB 9-5", but the joy for this event in Kiel blazed up immediately! 🙂 The course in Kiel was also great accordingly, as could be read.
    Class that we "non-participants" are so well informed about the blog !!!
