    Ryan: Just a note, While I congratulate New Salem on their accomplishments, they are not the oldest family owned exclusive SAAB dealer.We got our SAAB francise on April 1, 1959 and have been selling and servicing SAAB’s ever since. I don’t know who the oldest family owned dealer is (good research project) but we will be celebrating our 50th year with SAAB this April. Thanks…Ron Collins President Trio Motors, Inc.
