I'm a brand new Saab owner (not a brand new Saab). I bought a 2002 9-3 Convertible in great condition and need to bond w/other Saab owners. Can't find anyone here in L.A......Can you send some info regarding your event?


Thanks;ol;

Let's try and claim a SaabCentral spot in the lot ;) is that how it works? Anyone have a Swedish flag?

Or will there just be a Swedish section?

I hope I can get the day off from work, and hopefully I can get my car detailed properly before I go. I'll definitely be there if I do. Are we gonna have a section for sabbers?

It looks like 11 SAABers now.

Great idea about the canopy.

I assume the organizers will group cars by manufacturer, but you never know....

There is caravan info on the site as well:

Even with a ripped off front spoiler your car would have looked much better than some of the VWs and BMWs that were there...

Agreed, there were a literal TON of VAG representatives there, the more the merrier, lets try and meet up again sometime soon Del Mar or Carlsbad?). Make sure y'all are members of the SOCAL group on here. Haha most of us already are but here is the link. Great to meet you all.

I just posted in the SOCAL group. :) I propose a Friday night meet. Maybe not every Friday but every other Friday maybe? Somewhere in Carlsbad or San Marcos? That'll be in between the guys from OC and the guys in Southern San Diego.

Maybe just an empty parking lot somewhere food/coffee is readily in walking distance. There used to be a meet in San Marcos where a lot of other car groups gathered but has been shut down since last year due to a lot of Hondas racing and whatever else. Just a thought. n_n

Sorry I had to bail early.

Now I have the fever to buy some more aftermarket stuff.

I should have asked that bimmer guy where he got those neon pink rims :D
