May 22nd Online Meeting – Remembering Blake Nancarrow

In this meeting we’ll be remembering Blake, who for many years was the Lead Instructor and main organizer for the Saab Club of Canada driving schools.  We recently learned he passed away last year.   We’ll also discuss topics that Blake was passionate about such as road trips (Ed has just returned from SAABs@Carlisle) and all things automotive and Saab.  As always, this meeting is open to everyone.  It’s online this month, connect using the following link on Wednesday May 22nd at 7:00 pm ET.

Contact for SAAB Parts: Tristan Vieira

As SAAB owners often discover, finding the correct–and good quality–parts for our cars has become increasingly challenging over the years.

Those who joined us for our online “Parts” meeting in January of this year heard from Tristan Vieira, who is building a parts supply for SAABs. He writes:

SwedeSource Canada was created in 2017 by an avid Swedish car enthusiast with the goal of finding and supplying quality parts for Swedish cars across the world.  Our goal is to provide an easy and well priced solution to parts for all SAABs and Volvos alike.

Here is contact information for Tristan’s business:

Online Meeting with Saab Club of North America – Monday March 11th at 7pm EDT

The birds are chirping, the daffodils are poking up–at least in some parts of Canada. With this, most of Canada moves to Daylight Savings Time this coming weekend. So our special online meeting with senior members of the Saab Club of North America (SCNA) will be at 7 PM Daylight Savings Time, Monday March 11.

These Saab enthusiasts from SCNA will be on hand to promote the various Saab events being put on by the SCNA and its chapters in the US and to give practical information that attendees should know.. They will answer questions such as:

  • What Saab events are taking place this year?
  • Why should I try to participate in at least one? (Because we’re Saab people, of course.)
  • What happens at these events? Are there presentations, Saab parts sales, social get-togethers, room parties, barbecues….what else?
  • What is the process for signing up?
  • What are some tips to maximize my experience?

The link for the meeting will be:

We also do have a phone option–ask here and we’ll provide the info. Hope to see you Monday…..and at some of 2024’s Saab events.
