The Saab Owners Club are sad to report that one of its most dedicated members Carl Byrne has recently passed away. We would like to wish our sincere condolences to his family and friends.


The 2016 Saab International will be held in Sweden at Lake Vättern in Vadstena, 12-14 August 2015.

For full details go to the Saab International 2016 Website,

For those looking even further ahead the 2017 International will be in Trier in Germany.


It is with great regret that the Saab Owners Club of Great Britain has to inform members of the sad news that our Honorary President, Mr Erik Carlsson died peacefully in hospital earlier today. (Wednesday 27 May) Erik’s health deteriorated after a recent fall at home, an operation to relieve pressure on his spine and a bout of pneumonia. He was well cared for by hospital staff and attended by his immediate family, daughter Susie and her husband Bill. Members and Saab enthusiasts are asked to respect the family’s grief and need for privacy at this sorrowful time. More information will be circulated at an appropriate time. It is expected that the Saab Festival in Trollhattan 5-7 June will be dedicated to ‘Mister Saab'. Erik celebrated his 86th birthday earlier this year.

Welcome to the new SOC website.  I hope you like the modern colourful look.  The site will open up new opportunites for us and we should be able to provide a lot more content online in future.

We are still getting used to it so please bear with us.  There may be teething problems and we know we haven't got everything right quite yet.  It was an impossible task to manage both the old and new sites at the same time so we have jumped to the new site to allow us to concentrte on getting it right.

One of the main features of the site is that it is responsive.  In laymans terms this means that it adapts to small screens like tablets and smartphones.  This will undoubtedly bring problems where the screens look perfectly OK to some users but not to others.  We already know, for example, that the Logo can interfere with the menu on some screen sizes.
