I reckon there’s a good chance that a few people will notice Saab for the first time when they see a 1989 Saab 900 SPG on display at the Detroit Auto Show next month. It’ll have a banner on it proclaiming that it travelled a million miles. They’ll check out a Saab some time soon after and at least one of them will be hooked. That’ll be their story.
I posted an article last night on the way I discovered Saab automobiles.
TS regular Brian M linked me up with a video that sums up that first-experience grin pretty nicely. It’s one I’d seen before but not for some time. One of the ‘First Sketch’ videos from the release of the 9-3 Sports Sedan. Can’t help but feel this good.
There were a couple of similar stories in comments to my own story and I particularly liked one guy’s story about being assigned to deliver a new 900 SE Turbo from one dealership to another many years ago whilst working at a local dealership between high school and military service – he needed 15-20 minutes to let the engine cool before arriving back at work! I’ll leave the name out of it whilst we’re here on the front page, just in case the dealer is reading this (eek!).
Andy Rupert has also written up has discovery story at his co-blog, My Saab Story.
Any other stories about the way you discovered Saab are always welcome in comments.
