Saab owners and enthusiasts in France gathered in Paris for their “SAVE SAAB” event. As I hoped, the Saab enthusiasts gathered with the Eiffel tower in the background.

I am am really impressed with the attendance as some of the people spearheading the event thought there would only be a small turnout. Excellent job in putting together a gathering like this is relatively short notice!

Here are photos from David Morgan, RBM Performance, site sponsor of Saab History. Absolutely impressive job everyone!

Here’s David’s summary of the event.

Well I counted 114 Saabs and about 250 people. Paris was grey and rain,the atmoshere was cheerful but in that there was No organisation except for a time and point of rendezvous! At first the main Paris dealer planned it and then SAAB France took over but did nothing except get a bunch of Police there so as to block the south-east corner of La Place de Concorde for us. After an hour or so it just fizzled out. Everyone took of in their own directions, I felt bad for those who had dreiven a couple of hundred kilometers.

Well there was some press there and plenty of photographers but this was not Holland !!

Here’s some raw video footage from RBM Performance

    I want it to be clear that I am not the, or a, organizer and am in no way a point of contact for this Paris gathering of SAABs Saturday.
    I believe there is conflict going on as who is running the show .. and frankly at this moment we don’t know and have no details apart from 14:00 hrs Place de la Concorde !!
