Saab owners protested in Detroit outside General Motors headquarters in January two years ago.

Saab owners’ dedication to the marque is legendary.

Even though it appears the brand won’t be resuming production, Saabs will be rolling down our roads for years to come. If you happen to see a bunch of them this Saturday morning, chances are they’ll be headed to Charles River Saab, the country's oldest Saab dealership, for a gathering of loyalists from 9 to 11 a.m.

The word went out via social media channels (not quite a Flash Mob call) and by early Wednesday more than 150 had confirmed they’d be bringing their Saabs at least one from as far away as Washington D.C.

Charles River Saab is offering refreshments, its venue, and a complimentary “on-the-lift” inspection to all attendees.
