Välkommen till ACE Café Lucerne (picture gallery and report)
Some called it the perfect Saab weather for the meet at the ACE Cafe. Others might have wished for a few more rays of sunshine. However, considering that it was still snowing heavily on Saturday, the slightly rainy weather with a few rays of sunshine in between was quite acceptable.
But it wasn't about the weather and the little bit of snow left in the parking lot. Rather, it is about the Saab brand, which was brought to life just over 76 years ago. On March 12th, a nice mix of old and newer Saab models presented themselves in the parking lot in front of the ACE Café in Rothenburg near Lucerne.
Lots of Saab and Swedish pastries
The meeting in Lucerne has become an institution. Around 100 vehicles from the small Swedish cult brand, from the Saab 96 to the last generations of the Saab 9-3 and 9-5, were spotted in front of the café. Some participants also came to Switzerland from neighboring countries.
The variety on site was once again enormous. Some "bad" Saab showed their potency with a lot (Swiss) deer performance power. And as before, the Saab 96 in many bright, iconic colors were the stars in the Swiss Saab Parade.
A happy, relaxed rendezvous of many like-minded Saab enthusiasts was announced. The participants quickly immersed themselves in technical discussions and let old memories and experiences come to life again.
Hospitality was also taken care of. Last year there were fine Lucerne cream slices for the fans, now it's delicious Swedish ones kanelbullar. In German they are called cinnamon rolls, which were baked on Sunday morning and offered free of charge as a donation by two former Saab employees.
The delicious Swedish pastries went perfectly with a soothingly hot coffee. The 150 Kanelbullar were gone in no time.
After the goal is before the goal! Plans for the future were already being made on site. With the aim of using the next Saab Meet in March 2024 to announce the international Saab Meeting of 2025.
We are already looking forward to seeing you again!

It was great like every year! Thanks for the report and the cinnamon rolls =)
Thanks for the report and the pictures! That inspires to arrive in 2024!
This is really a fantastic report filled with cinnamon and strong Saab snaps, my heartiest congratulations. The Saab community in Switzerland is truly very active and lively, and when there is a Saab event like the ACE, many Saab enthusiasts follow the call as if it were a matter of course from the neighboring Saab territories as well. I'm already looking forward to 2024 at ACE.
Great pictures. I like the happy pops of color in the parade. But also the factual faction of the participating cars. A great mix that came together there. Thank you for the delicious report with cinnamon.
