NYC Saab Love

While our time is probably better spent covering more important things in the world, this is the first nice day I can remember in NYC and I thought I’d share a picture of my 9-3 sandwiched between a 9-3 convertible and 9-5 wagon. No matter how few or far between we all tend to gravitate towards each other. Funny how that works huh? First picture is looking south towards the Washington Square Arch, second is facing uptown and the Empire State Building. Time to enjoy a drink.

The only thing missing from the back of my 9-3 now is an SU license plate holder, which if I had Euro plates I’d most definitely already have bought!

That second picture needs a little lovin’ in Photoshop, I believe (lighten shadows).

It’s probably just confirmation bias in my head, but it does seem that Saabs congregate together.

Good vibrations attract good vibrations and guess what bad vibrations attract. Some call it the law of attraction. I prefer synchronosity.

Jeff,
come up to Riverside Drive and 86th Street and your Saab can park next to mine.

I’m impressed you found a parking spot to begin with!

Perhaps nobody wanted to park between two Saabs after the brand’s latest happenings! Just joking – I know that European cars are pretty popular in NYC. It used to be Volvos and MBs, too in the past. Up the Saab!

If you don’t worry about finding a spot, usually you find one easily, and a good one at that.

Hehe. Whenever I go shopping and there is a Saab in the car park, I don’t care how far away from the doors the park might be, but if the park next to it is free then I plonk my 9-5 right next to it and I smile. Haha 🙂

It gives you a nice warm feeling when your in a convoy of Saabs (driving or parked).

Where I work more and more co-workers have seen the light and drive Trollhattans finest and yes the cars do tend to gravitate towards one another.

I spend a much time in New York City, Washington,D.C. and Upstate New York.
The number and variety and model year SAABs I routinely see in all three locations is truly enormous.
It is unthinkabkle that the brand will not propsper into the future.

How many 2010-2011 9-5’s did you see?

….which proves that Saabs are bosons, they like to huddle together…….

Where on 5th Ave is that? It’s near the NYU dorm isn’t it? I’m NYU and I used to always go to the dark green Saab 900S that’s always on 10th St between 5th and Univ if I got nostalgic for my beautiful car (a 1996 900 SE in the same color)
