Saab Club of Finland has been awarded the rights to organize the IntSaab event in 2021. We’ve done it twice already: Ellivuori was the location in 2001 and 2011, but making Ellivuori III is not a part of our plan. As a result of extensive research...

When you visit the Saab museum in Trollhättan, you’ll find a beautiful line-up of Saab engines. Some are coated with special colors, some are made to reveal their technology by cutting structurals. Most are probably built in the beginning of their...

IntSaab 2021 What do we know so far

Juho Peltomäki wrote on March 15, 2020 -- 2min read

Our team has had very busy moments with this huge project. At first I thought that we’d just book the whole Himos resort, make some marketing, and plan some activities. But that is just the top of an iceberg. We have a dedicated guy just to make s...

Ten months to IntSaab2021

Juho Peltomäki wrote on October 11, 2020 -- 2min read

COVID-19. That nasty disease may have permanently changed the way we used to glorify global travel. Cancellation of Denmark’s IntSaab was very regrettable and that same dark situation is shading our event in Himos too. Nevertheless, we remain opti...

The Saab V8. You may have heard about it already. Tommi Järvinen wrote eight years ago a comprehensive article about it and now it’s time to republish it. Why? Simply because it’s easy to check out that engine on your way to IntSaab2021. Two of th...
