SOTW – Saab convertible loving

A funny thing has happened in the last few days, amidst all this uncertainty with Saab’s ownership, etc…..
People have been sending in emails with pictures and stories about their cars – just like they used to with the Saab O The Week category. Remember that? When we used to just talk about how great it was to have a Saab?
This entry comes from Chris P. It really is refreshing to just celebrate someone buying and loving their Saab. It’s what it’s all about, after all.
I thought you might appreciate this little photo of my latest Saab. I have been an avid reader of your blog for several years and finally thought it might be nice to send something in. I am lucky enough to own a 2009 Saab Aero TTid Convertible in Snow Silver, I test drove the ubiquitous Audi and BMW alternatives and settled for the SAAB. A decision I will never regret. Firstly because it’s a beautiful looking car, secondly everyone loves it, because it’s not an Audi or BMW, and thirdly because I believe in Saab.
The picture is from a trip I recently made from South Devon where I live to Ullapool in the North West Highlands of Scotland this Easter. The weather was fantastic, and needless to say I had the roof down for the several hundred mile trip once coming off the motorway at Glasgow!

Congratulations on the purchase, Chris, and thanks again for sending in such a great image.
