European Saab Clubs Plan Convoy To Trollhättan

The Saab Club of The Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden are all planning a group convoy of Saabs to drive to Saab Automobile’s facilities in Trollhättan, Sweden on January 17th, 2010.

Apparently at around 11am, they will arrive at the Saab Car Museum and then sometime at around 1:30pm (13:30), a huge convoy will drive around the Saab Factory, the Saab Technical Center and so forth. The folks in the Netherlands are also planning on finishing their trip at the Spyker factory in their home country upon their return.

The idea apparently behind this is to get a lot of press to show up to see the visual support of the car company. While I see this as a good idea, I have to stop and consider two things that are critical to this grassroots initiative.

1) Timing If a deal is to be completed by next week on January 7th, why would this event need to take place 10 days later?

2) Location I wonder why they are choosing to drive to Saab’s headquarters, what’s the point?

    An official message from the Dutch/Belgium Saab Support Convoy that will answer the two critical questions:

    – First we meet at the Military Aviation Museum, Soesterberg, The Netherland
    – After that we will form a massive Saab convoy of 300 Saabs on the Dutch highway
    – We drive in the direction of Amsterdam and have the final at a large parkingplace close to a shoppingmall.

    So we don’t drive to the Saab headquarter in Sweden because that will take at least two or three days with a convoy of this size

    – We’ve pointed the 17th of januari before the message of the 7th came out. We need that time till the 17th because we need time to setup a safe convoy. We’re in touch with the Dutch Highway patrol (police) have to arrange locations, sponsors, routing etc. etc.

    Hello. Thank you for your message.

    This is quite an incredible convoy of 300 Saabs, wow! I understand.

    Since the convoy is this large, you will no longer be driving to Saab’s headquarters in Sweden, understood.

    I will make the retraction.
