SOTW , Gunter goes for many drives

October 18, 2014 in Sotw

Last year I visited Intsaab in England and Mr. Saab, EriK Carlsson, took the time to admire my 9-5ng.
When I offered to take a seat in the car he said he didn’t dare because he was afraid he wouldn’t get out anymore, funny.
I love this car and went on holiday in it several times, twice to the south of France, to Intsaab 2013 and recently to Malbork, Poland for Intsaab 2014.
In august it took me and my family safely to Portugal and back to Belgium, we drove about 5.000km in 2 weeks.
On the way back we stopped in Bayonne (in the south of France near tothe Spanish border) to see the Saab 900 speedster prototype by Leif Mellberg.

Kind regards & keep on Saabing,

Gunter Van Oost

(aka Saabgun on SaabsUnited)

Thank you for these great pictures.

As always there are a few more pictures from Gunter on my flickr page

SOTW, JJ 1 & 2

October 11, 2014 in Sotw

Hello

In April this year, a number of car dealers in Sweden got the first new Saab cars for their showrooms and for test driving. But the situation changed at Nevs, and I think some dealers are tired of waiting for Nevs to start production again, so they are now selling these cars at a discount. I decided to replace my 2011 9-3 SS Vector, and a couple of weeks ago, I found one of these cars, driven 1000 kilometers, and I bought it at a good discount.
I send you some pictures, where you can also see the Sotw from April 19, 2013, my 2012 9-3 Convertible Independence Edition.

Now I am just waiting for a miracle to happen, so I can continue working. I started working for Nevs in January this year, but had to leave in June, when all consultants were dismissed. I am 65 now, so if no more job at Nevs, I will retire.

Best regards,
Johnny Johansson

Thank you very much JJ, as always there are a few extra pictures here.

SOTW on holiday in Spain

October 5, 2014 in Sotw


Hi Robin,

I often visit the SAABSUNITED web site and thought I would send you the attached photo of our SAAB taken during a recent driving holiday to Southern Spain. This SAAB has served us well over the years touring through Europe. As well as the Hirsch 19ins wheels seen in the photo, the car has also a Hirsch 252bhp power upgrade and Hirsch springs. This makes an ideal combination for touring on the continent and in particular through the Alps and Pyrenees.

Best Regards,

Mel Baynham

SOTW from Wonderland Sollefteå

September 28, 2014 in Sotw

Sorry for the delay with this weeks Saab of the Week. But I think its worth the wait.

Hi Robin…
I just want to share my 9-5 with the rest of the Saab world.
These pictures are taken at the “Ångermannabron” up in Sollefteå, Sweden.
Its around 9.30pm local time and the sun is still shining..
Its a 2011 9-5 Aero TTiD with around 134000km on the speedo.
I have mounted one of the nicest rims I’ve ever seen, 9×20″ Vossen CVT with 245’30’20 GoodYear. I changed the springs as well, dropping the 9-5 by around 45mm.
I have also upgraded the brakes, at the moment its the +18″, and painted red. But I will change them for the brembo brakes soon. I’m very pleased with the look right now. I have tried different splitters at the front but have not found the right one yet…
Any questions about this car, don’t hesitate to ask.
Best regards Andreas Ronnback from “northland/wonderland”


I have placed a few more pictures of this beautiful 9-5 on  my flickr page

SOTW, Marco’s flying NG900

September 19, 2014 in Sotw


Hi Robin:

Eight years ago and I keep enjoying this gorgeous SAAB 900NG 2.0T (MY96). The acquisition was a great opportunity that I jumped. I have performed with a number of trips and kilometres (over 70K) and I hope so many years to follow.

This new generation of SAAB 900 was not the bestseller acceptance of his predecessor, the legendary 900OG. The truth is that fewer units are on our roads and few of us still believe in blindly.

Along with good friends SAAB enthusiasts also, lately I’m encouraging courses at tracks days and their behaviour is remarkable. I also enjoy and keep two units of SAAB 9-3, but this model has stolen my heart.

I hope you share this veteran SAAB for your wonderful SOTW.

Greetings:
Marco Fernández

SOTW, Saab Silhouettes from Gus

September 13, 2014 in Sotw

In most pictures we see on SOTW the cars are well washed and clean. To get another point of view of a Saab I tested my photoshop-program and I found a function how to change the pictures into a drawing of the silhouettes. The results are the following drawings of our last Saab 9-3. In the background the Cathedral of Cologne. Gus.

SOTW Turbo X style

September 1, 2014 in Sotw

Sorry this is a few days late but I was in the depths of France with no wifi to talk off. But Simon’s Turbo X is worth the wait.


Hi Robin,

I hope this e-mail finds you well.
As you can see, I’m not the only one in the family to love the Saab Turbo X.

Best regards,

SOTW, much loved TTiD

August 21, 2014 in Sotw

Hi. Having bought an 11 plate 93 aero a few months ago, I’ve finally got round
to sending you these images for Sotw. As a young Saab fan myself, along with
the need for a new family car for my parents after a terrible Mercedes B-
class, a saw an opportunity to persuade them into buying a Saab. As you can
see, I was more than successful and now we have this beautiful white aero,
with only 14k miles from new. As a car enthusiast Saabs really appealed to me
and I couldn’t be happier with it, from its sheer quality to the immense power
from the 180 TTID engine. When it comes to style, the Saab struggles to be
beaten and I even have plans to use it for my prom next year! It may be our
first Saab, but we are hooked, and I can’t understand why anyone would buy
anything else!

SOTW, Nathaniel’s Fighter Jet

August 8, 2014 in Sotw

Hello,
I’m a long time SAAB fan and Saabsunited reader, but just back in September I bought my first SAAB (it’s my first car). It’s a 2001 9-3 S, so maybe not as exciting as others’ SOTW, but to me a fantastic car. I’d love to see it as the SOTW sometime.

-Nathaniel

That’s a great looking 9-3 Nathaniel, very smart in deed.
As always, there is a larger version on Flickr.
