On Sunday, July 8th, 2007 Cameron & Ed Lorenz held the tenth anniversary Saab Owner picnic at their home in Oneonta, New York. There were many in attendance including the former veteran Saab training czar, John Moss as well as many others who traveled in some cases quite some distances to attend. The variety of SAAB models were plentiful and it appears that everyone had a great time overall.

Here is some coverage of the event from Ed Lorenz, as well as some photographs by Thor Carlson, enjoy.

Sunday, July 8th, was our
