The time has come for another journey into Saab ownership vis a vis what do people own, where do they drive it and what’s cool about it?
This competition comes you in part via the generosity of the good Elks at Elkparts, the letter S and the number 9.
Today’s entry comes to us from John G:

This is my third Saab. My previous Saab was an “88” 900 S, all black tinted windows and chromed rims. Unfortunately it was stolen.
The first was a Saab 96 V-4. I had always been intrigued by Saab design and engineering. This car was a very interesting ride. You could roll the windows down while on the freeway and receive almost no air turbulence in the vehicle. Also while going to work one day on the freeway I encountered the car violently react to something at about 60MPH.
After arriving at work someone pointed out my Saab had taken a hit from a bullet that hit about ten inches below the drivers door. It did not penetrate the metal. Even though the angle possibly caused the bullet to deflect, if the metal was a lesser gauge the projectile would have most likely entered the passenger compartment.
That’s my Saab story.
