***Saab Independence Day Event***

***Saab Independence Day Event***

Postby GB24Hours » Thu Feb 24, 2011 1:21 pm

Sorry for the late notice, folks, but for once it's not my fault! ;)

Saab of Orange Park contacted us 2 days ago and invited us to their Independence Day Sales Event at their dealership. The event runs all weekend, but I am hoping we can get as many of us as possible to stop by Saab of Orange Park on Saturday the 26th, between 12:00noon and 2:00pm.

Please, let's do what we can to show our support for the brand that we know and love. Even if none of us in the club are currently looking to buy, if passers-by can see their lot filled with Saabs of all models and years it may help generate some interest for the dealer. We need them to sell as many Saabs as possible for the sake of ALL of us.

Again, please do your very best to stop by... if nothing else, you'll probably get a cookie and some juice for your trouble!

WHERE: Saab of Orange Park
7999 Blanding Blvd
Jacksonville, FL 32244
904-425-8902

When: Saturday, February 26, 2011, 12noon-2:00pm


Please post you interest!

Thanks for your efforts on this while I've been out of pocket, GB. How cool that we got mentioned on SAABS United, complete with an ignorant comment about how Jax is a "relatively small town." If only that were true. Don't get me started.

Anyway, I still hope to be there tomorrow, but things have been wacked here this week, so I'm can't promise anything.

We're slowly building up steam, Steve. New blood helps too. It was nice to meet Glenn (SufferingSaab) there, and we met a woman at the dealer who had just bought a 9-3 and who seemed like quite the car nut, so I'm hoping she'll get involved too.

So where are some pics?

Hey there. We don't have many SAAB owners in Florida, but we are trying to make Florida a more hospitable place for SAAB fans. If you ever make it over here, let us know!
