Rocky Mountain Saab Club Donates to Saab History

Posted on 01. Jun, 2007 by in 2000-2009, Saab Clubs, United States

rmsc.jpgThe Rocky Mountain Saab Club has recently made another extremely generous donation to Saab History film project by donating the money needed to transfer the remaining vintage Saab film, Saab-Scania 22 Minutes & 22 Seconds. This donation signifies the conclusion of the first phase of of the “Saab Film Project” that began back in the fall of 2006 when a number of 16mm reels were donated by John Moss, former employee of Saab Cars USA, followed by a number of additional films also provided by Dan Prescott, former PR rep of Saab Cars, USA, Inc. The second phase of this project will commence later this summer when I will be taking on a number of yet to be identified films by another former Saab Cars, USA employee.

The RMSC holds a number of annual events that range from technical workshops, repair and maintenance demonstrations to car shows and even dinners and picnics. In in addition this activitity, the RMSC has been starting a number of restoration projects, most notable the recently completed “Project Laura” 1970 SAAB 96 that I have featured previously. Their latest restoration project is known as “Red Bull” which is a 1961 SAAB model 96 two-stroke.

As mentioned previously, I will be providing information about what may be arguably the clubs largest project, the 2009 Saab Owners Convention. I will be providing updates as they come for everyone about this event.

A tremendous thank you once again to Bruce Harbison, Tom Nelson, Jerry Danner and the rest of the the Rocky Mountain Saab Club for believing in the content that is provided on Saab History for the Saab Community to enjoy and cherish for years to come. It is clear that the RMSC truly embodies Saab Enthusiasm at all levels. Thank you for your support and we’ll see you in Trollhättan, Sweden to share in the celebration of Saab Automobile’s 60th anniversary at the Saab Festival

    What a great write-up on the donation by the RMSC- Rocky Mountain Saab Club. They sound like a great group that obviously is true to their word and willingly put their money where their heart is. That is, some people may “pretend to be enthusiasts”, but when put to the test “so-to-speak”, they rallied and said let’s help save some vintage Saab film. Bravo to the RMSC.
