SAABtoberfest 2K+2!

October 5, 2002

This might be the best SAABtoberfest yet. Warm temperatures, brilliant (mostly) sunshine and convertibles, convertibles, convertibles with not a top up in the lot.

With beautiful Pennsylvania countryside, mostly deserted rural roads (once out of Wilkes Barre), and gorgeous scenery, Lee and Alan outdid themselves. Well done and thanks!

Eurotech kindly opened their shop and supplied complimentary coffee and donuts while the 'festers lined up for registration.

Probably Wilkes Barre never saw this many SAABs, stuffed into every parking place and parking lot prior to the start.

A nice 99 Turbo!

Avis and Tom Nelson of Colorado(!) on the return leg of their vacation camping trip in Nova Scotia. That's Avis' SPG, Tom's antlers and both their mountain bikes up on the roof. Avis and Tom were awarded the SAABtoberfest long distance award this year.

Christine Krueger was also recognized at the lunch break for making the 800+ mile drive from Atlanta to SAABtoberfest for the 4th consecutive year. See Christine on the SAABtoberfest 2000 page.

Dennis "made" me drive his '89 black C900 Turbo! 5spd convertible all day. It was a tough job, but I managed it!
