The weather forecast for this weekend can be described as "mixed". Which should not be a reason not to venture out of the house. Because Hamburg, Saxony and Thuringia are worthwhile destinations for Saab fans. And the Saab bloggers are right in the middle. The latest news of the weekend from Saab perspective.
Jan, Justus and I are looking forward to Hamburg. The 4. Saab meeting at the historic petrol station in Brandshof starts from 11.00 clock. The appointment is popular and now a fixture in the north. Excitement is also ensured this time, because there will be rare vehicles to see, which is almost a Hamburg tradition. Last year a directional limousine of Saab Automobile AB was on site. An 9000 CD with extended wheelbase, of which there were two pieces in the factory in Sweden. One copy is in the museum in Trollhättan, one rolls through Kiel.
And what is 2019? Markus Lafrentz has announced the Saab 9000 SC to get out of his collection. A station wagon that never existed ex works and which was created in this form as a unique project only 2015. The History of the station wagon and the idea behind it we had presented in detail before 4 years on the blog.
For the first time on Saturday, the opportunity to experience the 9000 SC at close range for the first time has been available again for years. An opportunity that does not often offer itself. Another highlight could be the visitors to the Saab-Sonett-faction. It is strongly represented in Hamburg and Schleswig Holstein and could perhaps set a new record in terms of the number of participating vehicles.
If, and that's the question mark, the weather plays along, and the owners let their exotic tin on the road.
Saab in Thuringia and Saxony
While on Saturday the historic petrol station at Brandshof becomes a Saab hotspot, Blogger Mark is on Sunday with the Saab friends Saxony on road. The exit to the southeast is well booked, and somehow it turns out that both exits start at the same time.
Intention or lack of coordination with each other? At the end of the tour, participants will have an answer to this question. Also in the southeast, beautiful vehicles are expected, a reflection of the history of the small Swedish brand. A shared lunch, coffee drinking with Saab talks and possibly a dinner are on the plan. Saxony, Thuringia and the Hanseatic city are worth a trip for friends of Saab culture this weekend.
