The 2018 annual Saab Owners convention took place on August 9-12 at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Marina in Solomons Maryland. This picturesque area in southern Maryland along the Patuxent River provided some great roads for driving and sights for seeing. The theme of the convention was 10 years of the XWD, celebrating its 10th anniversary. The event spanned three days and included everything from a Saab-centric car show, networking and awards, to technical talks and on-site Takata recall repairs.
There were approximately 400 attendees with more than 200 cars on display, ranging from the barely touched classics to the performance-enhanced “tuned” Saabs and everything in between.
