Chris Grider, Director

Nashville, TN

Chris caught the Saab bug when studying abroad at Linköpings Universitet in Linköping, Sweden.  Upon coming home and graduating from the University of Oklahoma, his first major purchase was a ’99 9-3 SE.  Since then, there has always been a Saab or two in the driveway.

His passion for Saab automobiles was only reinforced after Saab Automobile ceased production, and led to his founding of the Saab Club of Oklahoma as a resource for Oklahoma Saab owners for tech support as well as community.  Chris joined the Saab Club of North America Board of Directors in 2015, and has acted as the program manager for several Saab Owners’ Conventions.
