SaabUSA have donated a 9-7x SUV to Angel Flight, a charity organisation that flies sick people around the place for treatment. The 9-7x will come out of Santa Monica (we could live beside the ocean….) and be used by Angel Flight West.
In April last year, Saab donated $75,000 and the use of six 9-7x’s for a one year period, so this latest contribution continues that relationship.
Hint: they fly in planes. Saab’s born from jets.
She can relate to wanting something really badly: When she was a teen, she longed for a white Saab convertible. “It wasn’t something that was handed to me. I ended up working at a clothing store but hardly saved any money because I spent my paycheck on clothes.”
I know someone with a white Saab Convertible. Better hide this entry from Mrs Eggs…..
Yet another story promoting high-mileage oil.
Don’t read ’em. Don’t believe ’em. And ignore your recommended service intervals while you’re at it.
5,000 km changes. No more. Especially if you’ve got a 2.3.
GM’s OnStar is going to introduce a new service in 2009, and word from SaabUSA today is that it will appear on Saabs in the future.
With the new technology, which OnStar President Chet Huber said GM will apply to the rest of its lineup in future years, OnStar would call police and tell them a stolen car’s whereabouts.
Then, if officers see the car in motion and judge it can be stopped safely, they can tell OnStar operators, who will send the car a signal via cell phone to slow it to a halt.
Apparently, most OnStar subscrivers are positive about the service. It’s a service that one can opt-out of, which I think I’d be doing if I knew I was going to be late with my payments….
I had a good afternoon today. Many of you would know of PT, who drops in via comments quite regularly.
He was here in Hobart today for work. Hobart’s a small town. How small? When he finished his meeting he called me, and it turns out his meeting was actually in my building!
We went for a spin in the 900 and then stopped off to take a look at my Viggen. I haven’t seen it in over two months and it hadn’t been started in all that time.
It started with the first turn of the key.
Can’t wait to get it back.
