Monday Night Snippets

Want to help one of our regulars here at SU?

Phil Lacefield is a young guy who’s entered into Jalopnik’s America’s Next Top Car Blogger competition and you can vote for him simply by clicking this link and reading his article. It’s about Saab and whilst I don’t like the headline (unnecessary negativity) it’s a good read.

One of my mates in England, Mike P, took his 900 out on the weekend for a track day at Mallory Park. Very nice form, Mike.

Unfortunately, the car developed some electrical and fuel problems, shortening their day. Mike ponders if the car would make a good boat anchor, below 🙂

Does anyone visiting here live in the Dallas or Fort Worth area and have a spare garage space I could use for around a month or so?

Just asking…..

We’ve done a little bit on hypermiling and fuel economy in the past. Frankly, it’s not a huge interest of mine as I enjoy the turbo rush a little too much.

Still, for those of you who are interested, this guy got 51mpg (US measurement) from his Saab NG900.

Thanks to Charron for the tip!

As seen at Landvetter airport, Gothenburg, by Henrik….

Saab 9-5 Landvetter

——

Saab had a big marketing push in Italy last week to promote the new Saab 9-5.

This comprised:
– TV adverts on national channels
– banners on important websites such as www.lastampa.it
– full pages on national daily newspapers (like the one below).

The advert says

“those with their roots in the sky, could only create a car out of ordinary. The new 9-5 has arrived and thanks to its innovative solutions and advanced technology it offers a unique driving experience. New SAAB 9-5, drive it with different eyes. Discover it on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd”

I hope the test drives went well!

Thanks to Carlo for the tip!
