Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum Visit


Join us Sunday March 19th for a drive and visit to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton.  It will be the last official day of winter and a great way to welcome spring.  This event is for all Saab enthusiasts, club members and beyond. This is a family-friendly event.

The museum’s mission is to acquire and maintain a complete collection of aircraft that were flown by Canadians and the Canadian military from the beginning of World War II to the present, including related aviation artifacts and memorabilia of significant historic importance to this period.  It is also the home of one of the only two airworthy Lancaster bombers in the world.

We will be meeting at the Tim Horton’s at 150 N Queen St, Etobicoke (in front of PetSmart, one minute West of eZone) at 10:00 AM.  We’ll depart at 10:15 AM sharp, so please be a bit early!   If this location is out of your way, you can also meet us at the Museum at 11:00 am.  If it is not raining we’ll meet outside in the parking lot.  The Museum is located at 9280 Airport Road in Mount Hope next to Hamilton International Airport.  There is plenty of free parking.

The Club will pay the admission for all club members in good standing and their families and guests. Otherwise the cost is $10 (age 13+) or $8 (age 6-12).

To help us in our planning please complete the form below (or send an email to webmaster@saabclub.ca) to let us know if you plan to attend and how many guests you are bringing.  We hope to see you there!

Megawheelz meeting followup

Quite a number of low-riding VWs and other German-engineered machinery showed up in spite of looming skies. There were at least three SAABs; Martin’s Viggen, Chris’ 9-3SS and Nestor’s beautiful late model 9-3 conv. We definitely need to lower our cars, guys! All in all a pleasant afternoon.

Fall Colours Pictures

It was threatening, it was supposed to rain, it did rain lots–just not on the Tour. Not a drop!

This is a funny fall. Some trees have changed colour, some have even dropped their leaves….while others are still bright green.

Beside “Fall Colours”, there was another theme: here today and gone tomorrow. No, not our Saabs, but some of the nice farmland. We passed a major new highway interchange, cornfields seemingly in the middle of nowhere zoned and about to be redeveloped as industrial/commercial, and some residential developmnets that are springing up like mushrooms. We will not have these same nice country roads in five years!
