Yesterday, I published an editorial where I spoke about my belief in, and passion for this industry and in particular, for Saab.
The following morning, I got this in the mail. Sam had written to me a few days before, seeking some purchase advice. He lives in the US and the 900 he was looking at will be his first car. I’m sure those of you who, like me, now have a few miles under your belts, can remember a time when you would have written something like this…..
I HAVE BOUGHT THE SAAB!
I haven’t seen it yet due to the fact that I’m in Florida but my Dad is still in Massachusetts.
He went and saw it tonight. At precisely 9:25 on Wednesday, August 3rd my Dad struck a deal with the seller. 2500 dollars. The previous owner was a SAAB mechanic, so it’s in great condition.
I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of my very own SAAB. Where I come from, most kids get cars from their parents. My parents don’t spoil me so after years of saving up it feels great to be able to get my OWN car.
I can’t believe that my first car is one of the cars I dreamed of as a 10 year old. I am a complete car nut and I have an especially soft spot for SAAB’s. I’m still getting over it. It’s going to be a long wait because I don’t get back to MA until the 21st.
Best day of my life, BY FAR.
I hope you enjoy your 900 as much as I intend on enjoying mine.
P.S I just bought a SAAB, holy ****!
Welcome to the family, Sam. It’s a bit like Hotel California, if you know what I mean…..
Sincerely, congratulations on your purchase and thankyou for reminding us all of the excitement that we’ve all felt at different times.
The journey that I wrote about yesterday – the journey that I’ve had with Saab that I appreciate so much – started just like Sam’s journey. It’s taken me to some great places and brought me some incredible experiences.
I hope it does the same for you, mate.
