We Saabers tend to gather in droves.

It was certainly a ton of fun. The eight hour drive each way wasnt, but the time there was a blast. Always great to see people that only get together once or twice a year.

My dad went camping a few weeks back and said he saw a Mini that had an attached tent off of the back of the car.

... Still not as weird looking as the Prius camper...
