The main tent featured one particularly historic gem, specifically relevant after the recent passing of Mr. Saab himself, Erik Carlsson, to which this year’s show was dedicated.  The two-stroke Saab 96 that Carlsson drove to victory in the 1960 RAC rallywas there, in its full restored glory for all to see.  Also, It was hard to beat the amazingly rare Sonnet 1 at least years [email protected] show, where only 2 exist in the US .

 This is not a convoy. Is is just the driveway.
