SOTW, Taras and the two Aeros

March 6, 2015 in Sotw

Hello Robin,

My name is Taras, I live in New Jersey, and sometimes Florida USA
Currently I have 2 Saabs, ’07 9-3 Aero Convertible (lime-yellow) and 9-4X Aero (silver)

Recently, I took a trip to Toronto, Canada, and took some pix of 9-4X Aero with Ontario Lake scenery in the back ground.

The 9-3 is vacationing in Florida right now, hibernating in the warm garage. Only 9-4X is forced to be driven the cold New Jersey.

In 2 weeks I will be in Florida re-uniting them, and will take them both to Daytona Beach for a photo session right by the ocean.

Please find the pix below for your SOTW collection.

Thank You,

Taras Mazur

A big thank you to Taras for sharing pictures of these to beautiful Saabs
Many more pictures can be found on my Flickr Page

SOTW, Saab 9-5 in Istanbul

February 20, 2015 in Sotw

This weeks SOTW comes from Aydin in Turkey, great to see Swedish vehicles enjoying the snow there

Hi Robin,
My name is Aydin, I live in Istanbul and quite a SAAB enthusiast. I have been following SU for a long time and thought it would be good idea to share my SAAB. Correct me if I am wrong, if you publish my photos it will be the first one from Turkey.
This is my 2004 9-5 2.3T Vector. She is with me for a few months and I do love driving her. Having German and Japanese cars in the past, I can easily say that SAAB is by far the best one I have ever driven. The car has a unique design and great build quality. Drives very smooth and fuel consumption is very fair thinking of her performance.
After purchasing the car I changed the DI casette, brake pads and did the regular oil and filter changes and now I can say she is in good condition. SAAB is a rare brand in Turkey, Turkish premium market is dominated by German players. Despite everything, we still can find both authorized services and private garages for maintenance.
The first photo was taken at a weekend trip to a small lake 250. km east of Istanbul. Snow and cold weather is her natural habitat. Travelled about 650. km in two days, driving in hard winter conditions was no problem with her.
I salute every SAAB enthusiast and SU readers around the world with my best SAABish wishes :)
Aydin

Another great Swede enjoying the snow.

A big thank you to Aydin who has some extra and larger pictures which can be found on my Flickr page

Sotw, the dark collection

February 13, 2015 in Sotw

Dear Robin:

I have been meaning to send in photos of our Saabs for quite a while for SOTW and am just now getting around to it.   We really like the feature on SaabsUnited.  Attached are some pics taken a few months back in 2014:  a 2002 9-3 Viggen, a 2007 9-3 anniversary edition, a 2010 9-5 Aero and a 2011 9-4x Aero.  You could aptly say we are a bit addicted to Saabs (and these four follow several others we had before them)!  We actually sold the Viggen last year shortly after the pictures were taken so are down to 3 Saabs, which maybe is a bit more manageable.

We couldn’t capture all of them in a photo in our garage and driveway so we took these pictures at a park close to our home.

Thanks,

Chuck and Mike

Seattle, WA

Great looking 9-4x

SOTW, the Red Viggen.

February 6, 2015 in Sotw

Dear Robin,

I attach a very unique picture for SOW.
During 2 weeks, I travel across the US with Peter Gilbert, The Million Mile Saab Man.
We departed his home in Milwaukee to attend the Saab Owner’s Convention held in Oregon.
Still on our way back, and we have been through many adventures and sceneries.
Our trusty companion this trip, is peter’s 2001 Viggen, tuned to stage 2, and with some more goodies.
The car is one of 62 3 door red Viggens produced for the North American market.
So far, we traveled more than 5000 very hi speed miles, which turned out an average fuel consumption of 30 US MPG, and no loss of any motor oil.
The car just turned 124000 miles, with many more to come.
One place we visited on our way back is Butte in the western part of Montana.
This town is of Irish heritage, and developed on Gold, silver and mostly copper mines. It has developed from a camp, through a boomtown to a mature city emphasizing the historic preservation and environmental cleanup.
Some headframes still hang over mine shafts, in part of the history preservation.
The picture shows Peter at the driver’s seat of the Viggen in front one of a headframe.
