At the Saab Owners Convention 2022, which will take place at the Saab Heritage Car Museum in Sturgis, SD, expect to see some changes to the two traditional car show competitions.  We will implement these changes for SOC 2022 and consider making the changes permanent in the future. SCNA will have mandatory registration and entry of all cars in both competitions prior to the start of SOC.  When members register for SOC, they will enter their cars into either Concours d’Saab or People’s Choice competitions.  Because of the limited showfield space, this will allow for ease of planning prior to judging day.  Last minute changes to cars entered due to extenuating circumstances will be allowed.  Cars will be allowed entry into one competition only, not both. The changes are as follows: 


Entrant’s cars will be assembled in one location on the showfield, parked against the museum building

The judging process will be simpler, using 5 categories judged on originality and condition for a total of 100 possible points 

The number of categories for judging will be reduced to 7 (read details)

There will be two winning cars per category; “Best in Class” and “Runner-up”

There will be a “Best in Show” for an overall winner determined by the judges

SCNA will recruit trainees for judging Concours prior to SOC

SCNA will leave judging sheet with car when judging is completed


Categories will be expanded by separating out SportCombis (both 9-3 and 9-5) from Sedans (17 categories expanded to 19)

SCNA will adopt digital voting by smartphone, paper ballots will not be used.  There will be volunteers on the showfield to assist if needed

Voting will commence at 10 a.m. and will close at 2 p.m.

There will be two winning cars per category; “Best in Class” and “Runner-up”

There will be an overall “Best in Show” winner for the car with the most total votes
