I dont think this is a double post, if it is i apologize.

For Immediate Release: October 16, 2006

25th North American Saab Owners’ Convention Announced

Saab Enthusiasts Coming to Southeastern Michigan in 2007


DETROIT– For the first time in history, Saab owners and enthusiasts from all over North America and beyond will gather in Southeastern Michigan next year, celebrating the passion for their cars and the Saab brand.

The organization of the 25th annual Saab Owners’ Convention has been assigned to the Great Lakes Saab Club, with president Jim Laman serving as convention chairman. Commemorating the 60th anniversary of Saab as a car manufacturer, the 2007 Owners’ Convention will celebrate the highlights of Saab’s proud past, present and future.

“We are honored by the Saab Club of North America’s decision to choose Southeastern Michigan as the location of their Silver Jubilee convention,” said Jay Spenchian, Saab Automobile USA general manager. “We are looking forward to supporting the organizing Great Lakes Saab Club in every way possible. Beyond showcasing our flourishing Saab USA Heritage Collection and our latest array of products, including a number of special 60-Year Anniversary Editions, we are also planning on unveiling a very important new 2008 Saab production vehicle at the event.”

Continuing updates on the 2007 North American Saab Owners’ Convention, including the exact event location and program activities, will become available at www.saabconvention.org

Kalyan, it's a fun drive! Plus you could shoot over on I-94 and swing through the twin cities and meet up with any of us who will be heading out there (I will be barring any way odd circumstances - like unemployment or something )

there are quite a few Ohioites on SC...

And I think Thom/Unkept said that he was all about having a pre-party at his place...not sure if that offer still stands or not. Hopefully he'll be back on here sometime closer to SOC07 to clear that up!

I'm so there.
JK, i did a bit of google work a while ago and figured that Unkempt lived 11 hours from the TC, and 4 from detroit. The TC is 11 hours from detroit. Maybe we could roll to mad town, and start a convoy....
I'm putting my time off request in right now.
