June 10th during this year’s Saab Festival is set to become a truly memorable day. Not only because of the fact that on this day, it will be 75 years ago since Saab announced their first car “Project 92”, but also because of the once-in-a-lifetime photoshoot we’ll be organising for Saab 9-5NG and 9-4X owners in Trollhättan.
“The 9-5NG/9-4X photo opportunity of a lifetime”
The photo session is, once again, organised by 9-5NG owner Henrik Zaar, the same Saab enthusiast who has been the driving force behind similar photoshoots in 2017 and 2019, and of course the 9-5NG and 9-4X Production Reports. The photoshoots in previous years were great and are still much talked about in the Saab community, but this time, Henrik assures us, the photo session will truly be a “once-in-a-lifetime experience”!
When and where
The exact location for the session is still a secret at this point (and remain so until just minutes before the departure to the location!), but all interested Saab 9-5NG and 9-4X owners are invited to join with their respective cars and to gather at the parking lot at NEVS Tekniska (Flygfältsvägen 9 in Trollhättan) on Friday 10 June from 13:30, for a departure at 14:55 sharp.
Any updates to the schedule and other information will be posted on this page, so be sure to check regularly!
Important: be on time, preferably arrive already by 13:30
Q: I will not be able to arrive on time for the 14:55 departure from NEVS, can I join later?
A: Unfortunately, no.
Q: Why do we have to gather almost 1,5 hours before departure?
A: We need to make sure all participant cars is placed in a perfect order for the photo (in earlier photo events, the placement of the cars has taken a lot of time that we do not have this year) and there is a need for critical information to the participants before the departure.
Q: Will there be a similar 9-5NG/9-4X photo shoot on any of the other days of the Saab Festival?
A: Sadly, no. The venue we will be at has agreed to host us on the afternoon of the 10th only.
Q: I don’t own a Saab 9-5NG/9-4X myself. Can I also join with my own car?
A: The photo session is for Saab 9-5NG and 9-4X cars only. We suggest you catch a ride with one of the owners if you want to experience the event also.
Q: Will there be any Saab 9-5NG SportCombis at the photoshoot?
A: That seems quite likely! At minimum, #17 is confirmed to attend already!
Q: Do I need to pay a fee to participate in this photoshoot?
A: No, but please do bring a lot of Saab spirit!
Q: Should I bring anything special except for the Saab spirit?
A: Not really, your camera and good clothing for outdoor activities event will happen even if it rains, and as a side note: wear comfortable shoes. High heels for the ladies is NOT recommended.
Q: Where will the pictures be posted?
A: Count on finding many of them of this site, but there will undoubtedly be many social media posts as well!
Q: Where can I find more details about the Saab Festival 2022?
A: More details and Festival tickets can be found on the Saab Car Museum’s website: https://saabcarmuseum.se/en/events/.
