It may not be the best time of the year for a road trip, but it’s not often that a museum mounts a Saab exhibit and hosts an event with Victor Muller. From their web site: “The Simeone Automotive Museum will present a special show, “The Saab Spirit Lives On,” from February 23rd to March 17th. The exhibit will feature 18 cars from the collection of Bill Jacobson, owner of Sports Car Service of Wilmington, Delaware. The Saabs on display will include a 1956 Sonett 1, of which only six were produced, a 1996 “Saab Talladega Challenge” 900 model, and a Barber Saab Pro Series open-wheeled racer. Many notable Indy Car drivers such as Juan Pablo Montoya began their racing careers in a Barber Saab. The newest Saab on display will be a 2011 9-5 Aero, which was the ending production of the Saab era.”
The museum is by car approximately 8 hours from Toronto and 7.5 hours from Montreal. For details visit simeonemuseum.org.
