The Finns never had their own big car brand, but this fine example of automotive history was the closest we got to having their own car. The Saab Club of Finlandtells quite a story about the relationship of us Finns and their Saabs:
It has over 4000 members across the country, making it the biggest Saab owners club in the world.
They cannot thank Petteri Virtanen, the President of the Saab Club of Finland, enough. His insights and knowledge about the brand’s history was amazing and actually quite inspirational.
Alongside their four times a year publication, the Saabistimagazine, the club organizes local gatherings as well as international events, the last of which was attended by Saab drivers from almost 20 countries. The next big international gathering will be held at 2021.
The Finnish Saab Club Association or Saab Club of Finland (Suomen Saab-klubi ry) is an association founded in 1990, whose members share interest in Saab cars – old or newer.
