When I was a Toyota MR2 and then M3 owner, we had meets every now and again at Santa Pod, 'Run What You Brung' days as well as specialist days. but I suppose such a location is for those interested in the performance. With a growing family, it's just finding the time for a meet these days.
I would be up for a meet - location is key, perhaps somewhere central(ish) Santa Pod would be a good choice?or even the NMM - http://www.nationalmotormuseum.org.uk/ or perhaps an aviation museum, given Saabs aviation heritage? Newcastle is just too far, for me anyway.
I'd be up for it providing I haven't moved on to another BMW by then (which is unlikely with the house move), I've been to Santa Pod for the BMW meets and that place isn't what it used to be, won't go there again TBH the facilities need to be updated, The National Motor Museum would be a winner, haven't been there yet!
Theres no way I could travel that far I'm afraid, I think that even the southern Scotland Saab folks won't travel that far. I know there are more of you guys in England but that museum is almost at Lands End, I wonder how many of you would travel to the meet if it was held at John O'Groats??
Well even Birmingham or Manchester would shave a huge chunk of the journey for anyone coming from Scotland. Theres 3 of us in Aberdeen interested that I know of so far (although I'm not sure if their 9000's will be equally keen )
Chaps - you will be very welcome to join us at the International Saab Clubs meeting - the link that Dean has posted takes you to our main website and we will be publishing the booking details, and pricing for the weekend within the next couple of weeks. Those of you who are members of any of the European Saab clubs should already have received advance information via your club.
Keep an eye on the site for the updates.
All the best

Hi all, I have a Saab 9-3 with almost 200,000 on its clock.
I recently replaced the throttle body on it because the shudder valve was not closing on it properly and also oil was leaking from the bottom of the throttle body seeping out from the box where the electronics and circuit board of the...
This might help someone.
My 9-5 TID had very annoying rattle coming from passenger side when going over small bumps and road imperfections. While the suspension felt tight, there was still noise that makes you think there is something wrong.
Couple days ago I replaced the outer CV joints...
My ‘03 9-3 SE Convertible went into social distancing with the rest of us. Now the battery keeps going dead.
It went into the garage for a few days and we started it every few dayS. The weather was cold and rainy so we didn’t take it out. When it finally warmed up with some sun, the battery...
