Excellent initiative, be sure to post here: http://forum.saabsportclub.com/ for the French SAAB owners .. et en francais de preference.
If negotiations are still ongoing it is essential that the TV media be there.

EDIT: I see the French club have it on their radar but no convoy planned as yet from France. It seems there will be an assembly chez SaabHuy at Oudenaarde, in Belgium, Sunday morning and then convoy towards Antwerp..
I hope to be there. ..

You'd find that it's a bit far to drive to Belgium and Holland from Chicago

But a convoy to .. .. with plenty of media coverage ...

Default Warmfull greetings from Slovakia / EU

We believe in rescue because it's possible to save our brand. It must be sold only. We have wake up the Swedisch Government because they have to help. It's the way to take right decission. GM isn't capable to do nothing! We support the conwoys over the world. Don't let die the SAAB.

Default 576 cars in Dutch / Belgian Convoy

Several convoys from all over Belgium and Holland will meet at Soesterberg near Amsterdam on Sunday .. They are now 576 and climbing.
Here is the incredible list http://saab9k.nl/konvooi/deelnemers.htm

From Soesterberg, near Amsterdam, the 600 cars will drive the 80 kms to Muiden. The police have asked for them to proceed in groups of 20 at 1 minute intervals. As SWade remarks the first cars will have arrived at their destination before the last leave the starting point

"The other groovy thing about the Dutch convoy is that we'll all be able to watch it live!
Apparently the Dutch highway camera system is quite extensive - and the feed from it is available online.
I'll publish URL's when they become available" http://www.saabsunited.com/
