We have something planned for everyone – place your car in the Performance Automotive People’s Choice or Concours Showfields, listen to one of the many tech sessions planned – Jack Lawrence will be discussing Vintage SAAB Performance, courtesy of VSCNA, or perhaps Peter Backstrom discussing early SAAB rallying or maybe Jordan Pagano of eEuroparts sharing details of their new T5 conversion for Classic 900s!
