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.

Ebor Saab Scottish Mystery Weekend May 2019

ebor saab scottish mystery weekend may 2019 1 20190529 190050204414 Ebor Saab members set off on Friday 10 May to make their separate ways to the assembly point at Gretna Green for what was billed as a Scottish Mystery Weekend, the mystery being only the organisers knew the itinerary. The mystery began to unfold on Saturday morning with a drive along gloriously empty roads under blue skies up into rural Scotland to visit the Kagyu Samye Ling Tibetan Temple at Eskdalemuir (nobody expected a visit the foothills of the Himalayas).

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
  • 21st May   Grampian Transport Museum, Alford, Aberdeenshire - "How Many Left" event for 'nearly classic' vehicles with fewer than 500 examples on the road
  • 27th May   Rotary Club of East Sutherland Classic Car Tour, Dornoch
  • 28th May   Vintage Day, Highland Folk Museum, Newtonmore
  • 8th/9th Jul  43rd Scottish Transport Extravaganza, Glamis Castle, Angus
  • 4th/6th Aug  (TBC)  Ignition Festival of Motoring, Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, Glasgow
  • 13th Aug    Historic Wheels Vintage Car Rally, Brodie Castle, Morayshire
  • 20th Aug    Royal Deeside Speed Festival, Kincardine Castle, Kincardine O'Neil, Aberdeenshire
