Merry Christmas from SaabsUnited

December 24, 2013 in SaabsUnited Related


As days start to get quiet before Christmas it’s a welcome chance for us to reflect a bit on the past year. When it comes to Saab quite a few positive things have happened – mostly behind closed doors as it has become the culture at Saab under NEVS ownership. The extent of work that has been done became public with the first pre-production car that came off the line in September and then finally the real reviving of the factory with the start of serial production just a few weeks ago. And this is just the first step. We will surely see more things to come next year. No doubt it will be interesting and finally in a positive way again.

On the fan side we had the Saab Festival this summer in Trollhättan. Those fun days really proved that the Saab spirit is still strong and very alive. Of course I should not forget to mention the numberless other events all around the world – from the large ones like IntSaab and Saabs@Carlisle to the small local club events. Hats off to all who organized those.

SaabsUnited this year saw the ownership tranfer solely into my hands, which on the frontpage meant no big change at all. The most satisfying thing for all in the team is that at some point we finally got some news to write about again. And it is encouraging to know that there will be more. Another point for us is the migration of the SaabsUnited store to We did that mostly to use the logistic synergies and to be able to offer more items than could before. I hope you enjoy it.

Finally, on a very personal note, early this year I had to face a very tough loss as Nic Schellekens passed away unexpectedly and way too soon. I know that many within the community came across him, be it during the organization of WeAreSaab in the Netherlands or on any other occasion. I enjoyed many conversations (mostly about Saab) with him and also cardyourcar was something we both started up about a year ago. I salute you, ol’ grumpy Scotsman.

Whatever your memories of the passing year are, I hope you also get some rest and find time to reflect on them while being among your loved ones. I, along with the entire team of SaabsUnited want to wish you a Merry Christmas. Enjoy those quiet days, things will start to get loud again soon enough. For example when you take your Saab for a holiday ride…

The SaabsUnited Chocolate Advent Calendar

November 17, 2013 in SaabsUnited Related, SU Shop

SU Adventskalender final outline fŸr web

The SaabsUnited store has been pretty low since the Saab festival.On one hand we sold out most of our items and on the other hand the store has completely moved to Throughout this week I am going to feature some of the products that are now available in the SaabsUnited store and on CardYourCar in general here, starting with something very special:

The SaabsUnited Advent calendar really sweetens the wait for Christmas. On the outside if features a beautiful 9-3x in the snow and on the inside there are 24 bars of Milka chocolate waiting for their day to come. With a size of 27 x 19 x 1 cm (approx. 10,6 x 7,5 x 0,5 in) and a foldable stand on the back it is perfect for the office desk.

That advent calendar is strictly limited to 250 pcs so don’t think about it for too long.

Feel free to browse through cardyourcar. Of course you can cross-shop all the articles there and get it all in a single delivery. Even a first glimpse on the new SU calendars is available. They have just been made available for pre-orders. More on them later this week.

SU Calendar 2014 – Last Call For Photos

October 20, 2013 in SaabsUnited Related, We are many, We are SAAB

Roughly two weeks ago we opened our email for entries for the new SaabsUnited calendar. We have already recieved a variety of great pics from all around the world that tell us how great the Saab spirit still is.

The decision has been taken to go for a larger size of approx 42×30 cm. As for a second calendar it looks like we might get enough entries and I’d like to encourage all Convertible owners to send in pics of their Saabs (just as a slight hint what we have in mind).

Since we want to come out with the final product a bit earlier than last year we close for entries on Wednesday, October 23rd. Here is a quick reminder of what we are looking for:

We do not have a general demand on the size of the photos but remember that it should preferably have 200 dpi in the final size or 42×30 cm.

Please send your images via mail to su @ .

re-posted SaabsUnited Calendar 2014 – we want your photos!

October 4, 2013 in SaabsUnited Related

Just a reminder, we are open for entries for the calendar for another two weeks. So if you have some time to spare over the weekend to check your hard drive – keep the photos coming!

At the end of last year we asked you to send in your photos for a SaabsUnited Calendar. It has been the first time we did that and with 500+ calendars sold one can say it has been pretty successful.

Since the year is slowly turning to an end again we open our email for your photo entries again. This year saw, among many other events, a Saab festival so I am sure many of you will have images on their harddrive that would fit our calendar well. We do not have a general demand on the size of the photos but remember that it should preferably have 200 dpi in the final size of A4 or A3.

Please send your images via mail to su @ .

While last year we made a dedicated calendar for the 9-3 II we hope to get enough entries to come up with another special calender on some topic. We have not yet decided which one that should be so feel free to let us know what you would prefer.

Another topic you can leave your opinion on is the size of the calendar. Some people liked the small version we had last year while others would have liked it a bit bigger. So we might come up with an additional larger version in the size of A3 (approx. 420×300 cm).

A new era for SAABSUNITED

June 18, 2013 in News, SaabsUnited Related

One thing I know for a fact from the past 2,5 years I’ve had the privilege of working with SAABSUNITED is that Saab fans are absolutely great people to be around! Sure we have a difference of opinion sometimes but in general we are a bunch of people who I really like to hang out with.

In August 2011 Till72 took 50% ownership of SU since the website had just become way too big for one person to manage and as of June 1st 2013, Till now has 100% ownership of the site. I’ve let go of my share mostly due to the impact SU has had on my spare time, family, friends, career etc. The site has made me gain many new friends and relationships which I really enjoy but now is a time when I really have to shift focus a lot more on my airline career but also on my future with Saab as a brand.

Me and Till have had a very close contact with each other for the past two years and Till has added stability to the site in a way that I could never do. Our relationship has evolved to a point where he practically could be the “elder brother” I never had in real life. The other guys in the crew are a great bunch of people and I hope that we’ll stay friends for life.

Anyhow, you might not have noticed any change on the site for the past 18 days, thats because in reality there isn’t any, things will continue just like before and the website will stay the same and I will also continue to write, hopefully even more than before since I now have the chance to focus more on research and writing rather than on strategy and technical obstacles. We’ll continue to develop the site together and I think you’ll find that Till have some good ideas of consistency / standardization for how we do things.

I’d like to officially thank everyone who has helped me over the years and once again, Saab people are great people! Thanx! =)

SU for Scandinavians

April 2, 2013 in SaabsUnited Related

Just over a week ago we launched the scandinavian version of SAABSUNITED. Its a site with a couple of writers who all live in Scandinavia and write in one of the nordic languages. We’ve had some small start-up issues and have gotten to know a few systems better as they caused a bit of headache, however nothing we didn’t expect and now it looks like everything is running smoothly.

On this site we’re posting about local news and events happening for Saab fans in the nordic countries as well as all the articles from .com translated into either swedish, norwegian or danish.
