While I'm not an owner (yet?), we decided to head up to the 2009 Saab Owner's Convention at the Copper Mountain Resort in Colorado.

http://www.rockymtnsaabclub.com/SOC09/
It's about 1 hour+ or so up the mountains and over the Continental Divide from the front range of Denver, CO. http://****************.com/smile/emgift.gif Weather was cool and wet for this time of the year. We were appreciating the nice views when we see this in the rearview!


Needless to say we let them past. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

It's a trip seeing one of these in person.


An insider in the business tells me it's a Euorpean model testing in the US.


Anyhoo, we carried on and spotted Turbio's(?) alter ego rockin' a unique VW adventure van.


The view from the side is priceless!
Note the silver propane tank.


Finally, we make it to the resort area. Really sweet place. Lots of bicyclists. And rock wall climbing. Lifts were running for free to take you to the top.


They had the new upcoming 2010 Saab 9-3X model out front! Alongside some sweet pieces of Saab history.

Attended a Haldex XWD seminar given by a young software engineer now living here in the states. He mentioned Saab gave him a 2008 TurboX to drive and after he had 11 points on his license, he decided to give it back!



They had lots of late model Saabs in the display area...



One semi local dealer had a leftover 2008 9-5 sedan model for $10k off! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

They also had 4 new 9-3 models for unsupervised test drives! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

2 had the new XWD system. One 2.0T sedan and a V6 XWD Aero SportCombi. Really nice, fun to drive cars. Convertible was quite sweet as well. The seating alone could tempt you!

Note to self: Get a 2.0T XWD and possibly keep your license!
