Just trying to get the ball rolling, and keep some momentum.

Where and when should we meet in August?

Anyone?

All I know is the last event wasn't hot enough, so let's try for something hotter!

OK... Noon to 4pm, middle of August, on some huge expanse of black asphalt in Gainesville.

Woo-hoo! :lol:

Seriously. No one has any ideas?

Ok, how's about a nifty drive up through Jacksonville's lovely northeast quadrant. It's very scenic, with lots of water. We could do a cookout/beach thing at Little Talbot Island or hit a seafood restaurant in Mayport.

Just a thought.

ORRRRRRRR....

We could do an engine mount installation party at my house since I just bought two engine mounts! Who's got a floor jack they can bring?

Eh? Eh? Come on!

We could meet at my house and help me install a new TCS unit into my 1995 Saab 9000 Aero...?? ;)

It is possible that we could do either of those, or both of those at once!

Saab9000Aero, post in the "Member Introductions" forum, and tell us a bit about yourself. Are you Ezra's friend? Either way, welcome!

These are the kinds of things I have been wanting to do all along ... Saab owners helping other Saab owners. I realize that it doesn't take the entire club to install a part on a car (there's a joke there, somewhere, I think), but if several people have projects they want to do, we could all do them on the same day and share knowledge, experience, tools, etc. Those who can't or don't want to pitch in can still hang out and shoot the breeze, eat cookies, take pictures, etc. This is what the days at AIT are really supposed to be about, I think, but we've generally not used those times to do more elaborate procedures.

Ted, your post about Orange Park Saab is important enough for its own topic, so I split it off. Hope you don't mind.

Hmm, well, let's open it up and see if anyone else has a project they want to do with the help of other club members. If we have enough people, we'll discuss doing it at AIT with Ted. If not, then, we can do something at my house. I got my parts today, so I'm looking forward to installing them soon.

*sigh*

Saturday, Aug. 28th at AIT in Jacksonville, FL.

Maintenance Day. Don't get out any grills, because we get fat and lazy when there's too much food. Just bring food and drink for yourself. Be ready to get dirty helping with other's cars.

I have only done one engine mount so far, so if I can come, we can at least do that.

Ah yes!

Maybe I will get my Citrin Beige CS registered and join in the fun @ AIT. I hope someone will have an ISAT/TechII to reset my SRS ECU(s).

I look forward to spending some quality time with fellow SAAB'ers

T minus 11 and counting.

I am really looking forward to seeing the AIT facility as well as the rest of the SAAB irregulars.

Of course, I will be more than happy to share my limited repair knowledge with anyone interested. Now, if ONLY I can get off my duff and get my 96 Citrin Beige CS registered...

Well Don... I know of 2 9000's that need some help!

Aero (Justin) with an unknown problem here in the Daytona area, and Saab9000Aero (Coleman?) with a TPS problem in the Sanford area.

Hopefully they'll join us.

Well I'm up and running, though a bit more sluggish as I used to be. As of now I'm planning on getting to the meet next Sat. What time are people planning on being there and is anyone heading up thru the daytona area I could meet up with for the drive up? Justin.

Justin, the gathering is scheduled for 10:00am - 2:00pm or 3:00pm.

I'm 96.3% sure I'll be going, and Nick from New Smyrna Beach is about 97.8% sure he is going. :-?

Nick and I haven't talked about specifics yet, but you are more than welcome to drive up with him, or me, or both of us... if we go at the same time.

Keep checking here for details... or PM me and/or Nick.

Fellow SAAB'ers;

Want to be part of a SAAB convoy to AIT on the 28th?

I PM'd Aero (Justin), that I would be in the Holiday Inn Express parking lot on the Northeast side of the intersection of I-95 and Speedway Blvd.
Exit 261. Just look for a Scarabe Green 9000 with a badly dented hood...

How does an 8:30 AM departure sound?
