The Simeone Automotive Museum will present a special show, “The Saab Spirit Lives On,” from February 23rd to March 17th. The exhibit will feature 18 cars from the collection of Bill Jacobson, owner of Sports Car Service of Wilmington, Delaware.
The Saabs on display will include a 1956 Sonett 1, of which only six were produced, a 1996 “Saab Talladega Challenge” 900 model, and a Barber Saab Pro Series open-wheeled racer. Many notable Indy Car drivers such as Juan Pablo Montoya began their racing careers in a Barber Saab. The newest Saab on display will be a 2011 9-5 Aero, which was the ending production of the Saab era.
Mr. Victor Muller, founder of Spyker Cars and the recent CEO of Saab, will be the featured speaker at the Launch Party on Friday, February 22nd, from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Mr. Muller will be speaking promptly at 5:30 PM and will be addressing the current state of the Saab bankruptcy and his efforts to preserve Spyker and Saab. Additional speaker and Guest of honor for the event will be John Moss, Senior Instructor for Saab, who will share memories of working for Saab for 37 years.
Launch party tickets must be purchased in advance and are limited to 200 attendees. These are $25 per person and include a swedish themed menu along with beer and wine. Visit simeonemuseum.org for ticket sales for the launch party. If planning to attend the exhibit another day, purchase tickets at the door to avoid the $4 surcharge on the museum site.
The Simeone Automotive Museum is located at 6825 Norwitch Dr., Philadelphia, PA 19153

Check about 8 posts down, "Saabs on display in Philly". Doesn't seem to be too much interest, but I think it would be a good place to plan a meet sometime during the display.
