This early group of enthusiasts (The SAAB Owners Club of Great Britain) grew in number and it was on 17th May 1963, at the Cheshire Cheese Wine Cellar in London’s Fleet Street, that the SAAB Owners Club was officially formed, with an initial membership of 60.
Since then the Club has grown to around 2000 members (!), and is the largest and most comprehensive UK club for all SAAB enthusiasts. Many of the early members are still in the club today.
