An example of the earlier magazine style

The Club Magazine

Members of the SAAB Owners Cub receive a copy of the club magazine 'SAAB Driver' bi-monthly. The magazine (A4 size) is a 64 page colour publication. The magazine carries articles, news, technical, events and many other items.

 

The content of the magazine varies from month to month. Features include Steering Wheel, Car Clinic, Post Bag, Model Registers including the new Boost! feature which addresses all aspects of Saab Tuning.

In the Members area of the Site members have access to Back Issues, currently dating back to 2007! Above is an example of a pre 2009 edition available in the members area.

Earlier versions are only available on paper.  We are actively looking at getting these digitised.  There are all sorts of issues with this, in particular the cheapest options involve, effectively destroying a copy of the magazine by cutting the spine.  As you can image owners of the rarer editions are not particularly enthusiastic about this idea.

The back issues section has recently been updated to include all 2015 issues

The 'SAAB Driver' is the main means of communication between members and provides the opportunity to air views and ask questions. A sample copy of the magazine is available to download in Adobe PDF format.

Club members are competing in, Historic Road Rallies, Historic Stage Rallies, Classic Runs, Sprints, Hillclimbs and many other forms of the sport.

GALLOWAY HILLS RALLY

As the final round, the Galloway Hills Rally was not a scoring round for us and my driver took the decision not to contest it, giving me a chance to dust off the 99 for another blast through the woods. Martin MacCabe, a Scottish Championship regular kindly agreed to read the notes. With a two car team bolstered by Grant Inglis in his lovely new MK2 Escort we made a good spectacle as the service barges towed us into the Rally HQ in the pretty town of Castle Douglas.

North of Scotland

There is no formal Branch currently in operation (largely as a result of the sheer geographical spread of members across this area) and therefore no regular meetings.
Where possible, there is usually an  SOC 'presence' at gatherings across the region organised by other clubs, motor museums or advertised on web forums (principally UKSaabs).

The dates known so far for 2017 at which we aim to be represented are:

  • 23rd Apr    FBHVC 'Drive It Day' 2017  - various local runs (I'll be attending the one organised by the Highland Classic Motor Club, Inverness)
  • 7th May     Forres Theme Day
