It's OK, you were the only one to stand us up... Finwick where the hell were you? You seemed like the most excited person of all for this cruise.

Alas, alack, and woe me.... Oh, woe and many, many lamentations.... P1624, P1110, P0730, P0100, and no fourth gear.... Everything was going so well and then: panel lit up like a christmas tree and off to the shop. No run for Finwick.

Sorry Cark, I really tried, but the fates were against me.

I'll definitely keep everyone posted. As of now there aren't really any NE events planned until Swedish Car day in late August. I'd like to see some sort of get together/cruise between now and then.

Its great you got something going here in New England. It would be cool to have an event/cruise before swedish car day. Where is swedish car day this year and when is it?

Swedish Car Day:

It's always a great time! Used to be in October but they've moved it to August due to usually cold/rainy weather. Last couple years have been VERY nice!

Great! I have never been before but this year I have a Saab so I can't miss it! Great work starting up this thread because until I saw this there is NOTHING going on in New England concerning Saab enthusiasts.

Default NE summer cruises/meets

I was going to be travelling all of June and that made July look busy but seems my plans have changed. I may have time to organize another Six Gaps Vermont Cruise or perhaps a cruise/meet a bit to the south of there this summer. That cruise is a bit of a haul for the Ct/ RI folks. I'll be at Swedish Car Day with a couple of car but agree it would be nice to do something before then.

I'd be very surprised if we don't do our annual Saabs on the Summit trio Mt. Washington in October - but that's Luke's baby.

sounds like a lot of renewed interest here. I could always set up another run sometime with the same route, since only 5 people got to do the whole thing And the ones that did it really seemed to enjoy it.

I would be excited about six gaps too, bummed I missed it last year, but I know what you mean about being hard to get CT and RI folks, but that's the nature of the beast, because who the hell wants to go down there for a drive? Not this guy

>>who the hell wants to go down there for a drive? Not this guy<<

Not in the summer (too much traffic) but we have had a few fantastic off season cruises thru the Ct countryside and another CT/RI coastal cruise that included same great views, roads, and stops. Plus we usually get 15-20 cars (Ok, so we sometimes invite a few Volvo guys) so tht adds to the fun.

Looks like my June travels are back on so I've got nothing in the works until late July.

I am pretty much free all summer. Lost a job last Nov. Now I have lots of time to enjoy my 900. Keep us posted.

I think that the sooner this gets set up the better the chance is that we get a lot of people involved. It should be before Swedish Car day though! We should also think about getting a convoy together for the trip to Boston.

I'll take a look at the calendar and see how things look. As we get deeper into summer lots of people get swamped with "weekend activities". Fortunately almost all of the route is off the beaten path, so won't be affected much by summer tourist traffic.

I'll toss out a couple of dates hopefully later today.

Hey Cark,
Is the '85 at Steve's place in North Berwick right now? I just dropped the 9-3 off for some work tonight and saw a nice rose quartz 85 with louvers, incas, and same vanity plate as yours. Any chance you buy that car off a guy in Nashua a few years back?

That is my car indeed! I just picked it up from the guy in Nashua back in mid April. Steve is going over a few things from the front brakes, diagnosing a low boost issue, swapping in some SPG springs and slapping on some new tires. It's going to be a like a whole new car when I get it back... and I had been having a blast in it all along, I'm pretty excited.

And oh yeah, Steve is the man!
