I've got this on my calendar but I'm not 100% sure I'll be there right at this moment. Hoping to make it :)

Might we follow this event up with dinner? I know you guys don't really like to eat, but it wraps up around that time. ;)

There are such problems and difficulties associated with a cruise-in like this. Do I drive the SPG, the most "show-worthy" and rare Saab that have?
Do I drive the 2002, with big "For Sale" signs in the windows to try for some exposure?
Do I drive the Aero, since only 1 of my Saab-buddies have seen it so far?
Problems, problems, problems.

It kind-of runs through dinner time, doesn't it? Usually these thing are held in an area where there is food readily available [i]during[/] the event (Subs, and grilled food, and the like). I've never been to this area OR this event, so I don't know what's nearby. Maybe I'll get a chance to head that way and scope things out in the next couple weeks.

Nah. The projected track keeps moving east, AND it will be well north of us by Saturday evening, anyways.

I may have identified a couple more members in that area who will be joining us. I'm thinking Shawn will be there in his purple C900 and Justin in his gray C900 vert. The more, the better!

My fellow SAABers,

I am gonna start looking at the parking lot directly north of the address GB24hours Googled. Then I will work my way east from there. I'll be driving the Citrin Beige 9000, probably arriving around 5:30 PM. Hope to see ya there!

Happy SAABing!

I've never been to this event, so I'm not sure exactly where we gather.

I'm guessing one of those two parking lots. Other than that, yes, we just look for other people with funny-looking Swedish cars. :D

A late wrap-up...

Shawn and Jolene from Haines City were the first to arrive in Shawn's customized '89 900i. They were then met by Nick with his recently-acquired '97 9000 Aero, which has the best seats eVaR in it. Soon after Don and Barbara(?) arrived in the Citrin Beige engine-eater ('96 9000 CS). Due to delays caused by medical emergencies in my son's Pop Warner football league, my family and I were quite late to arrive in the red SPG.

The event, however, was terrific. Great weather, great setting, and a nice ambience. It was so nice that Don and I spoke of making it a semi-regular hang out.

It was great to meet some new people, and check out all the cars... from 1930's rat rods to brand-new Challengers and Camaros. From antique VW Beetles, to an '83 RX-7 with a 350 Chevy in the front. And, thankfully, enough Saabs to make it look like we were actually there "on purpose". Sure would be nice to get about a dozen of us to these things.
