I finally arrived in Detroit late tonight, and will be resting up for a good day tomorrow where I plan to join others for the “Save Saab” gathering.

Some of the Saab enthusiasts will be traveling as far as Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Wisconsin and Iowa to attend the “Save Saab” gathering. I want to sincerely thank all of the individuals that are attending, you are really showing your Saab spirit and now the whole world is watching!

For those are unable to attend, particularly here in the United States, please contact your state Senator or U.S. Representative as soon as possible. I managed to connect with my own State Senator, Susan Collins in Maine as she was passing by me in the Airport on my way to Detroit this morning. When I spoke with her, she said she already knows about the ongoing “Save Saab” campaign and said she’s doing all she can. That’s great that one of our Senators is well aware of the initiative, and here’s hoping the rest do too!

I also want to thank the press who are doing a continually outstanding and unprecedented job at reporting this Saab gathering as of late. Please keep up the great coverage and we hope to see many of you in Detroit tomorrow along with us!

I lastly want to thank my contacts recently at GM for being supportive of our initiative and I hope that we’re able to do our very best tomorrow in communicating our message in our gathering outside that Saab needs to be sold.

I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

As Saab Automobile’s fate is to be determined in 4 days (January 7th), it could be ultimately up to you in the United States that ensure that Saab is saved and here in the United States, the dealership network is preserved and all of the related business continue.

While some of us are able to make to Detroit to show our Saab spirit, others are gathering in Europe, you in the U.S. need to take action if you cannot make it to Detroit by contaacting your State Senator and U.S. House of Representative to tell them to Save Saab.

Saab History’s colleague Saabs United are also stating that you can make also help make a difference, so check out their site too for the additional talking points and letter.

I sincerely urge you to contact these people by e-mail today, and by phone on Monday. Each Senators and Representative’s office needs so many phone calls that it is overwhelming that they do something on Monday. Please take this initiative.

Here is the contact info and talking points.

Call Your US State Senators and US House Representatives TODAY!!!!!

Every US citizen who is concerned about Saab’s future needs to ACT TODAY! Time is running out. A decision by GM not to sell Saab is unethical, injurious, arbitrary and simply bad business. This needs to be made more public! We need to alert the media and our elected politicians about this while there is still time to prevent GM from injuring all of us. Please follow the links below to find the US Senator and House Representative for your State. For your Representative you will need your zip code +4. I have included the US Postal link for your convenience.

Saab Talking Points

* Important note! : Two deals exist (Spyker and Merbanco). Both match GM’s initial offer for sale as well as address all the additional concerns raised by GM!

* What’s At Stake?: As a result of GM’s decision to shut down Saab, about 5,000 jobs will be lost at the dealership level in the US. It is not a very large number, but each of those losses can be avoided.

* Additional Information: The US taxpayer currently owns 61% of GM via $30+ billion of bailout funds and outstanding loans of an additional $4.5 billion.
