For the first time in 23 years the UK Saab Owners Club National is being held in Wales this year from 29-31 July 2016.
This is a particularly proud moment in the short history of the Welsh branch of the […]
A good friend of mine sadly has to sell his low mileage 900 Ruby Edition. It had previously been listed and sold on Ebay but the buyer then declined the purchase due to not having the money to buy it!! It is now relisted but with only 20 hours left to go!
I am mentioning it here because it is a fantastic opportunity to own what is fast becoming a sought after model and hope it can be purchased by somebody within our community or a Saab fan who will cherish it as it so deserves.
I originally sold this car brand new from the dealership I worked at to a chemist who sadly died. His wife then kept the car in the garage for many years until she then sold it to my friend who coincidentally was also a salesman at the same dealership.
The time has now come for it to find it’s third loving home. The car can be found on eBay (see details below) but only has 20 hours to run (at time of writing). Apologies for the short notice but I have only just found out about it being relisted.
Only available in the UK, the Ruby had the 185 bhp (138 kW; 188 PS) ‘Carlsson’ engine but no body kit. All were in ‘Ruby’ Red and can be distinguished from other 900s by the colour-coded bumpers and grey (rather than silver) alloy wheels. They also had the unique air-conditioned interior of buffalo leather with Zegna pure wool inserts in the seats and door panels. There were 150 examples and were the last classic style 900s sold in the UK.
This example for sale is a genuine 2 owner car with only 69,000 miles on the clock from new and has a full Saab main dealer service history.
It is in fantastic condition as you would expect and has 4 new tyres, also new brakes and discs all round.
It also drives perfectly to match its condition.
This has to be the best example of a classic Saab 900 Ruby available in the UK at this moment, this is indeed a great investment opportunity for somebody to own a piece of motoring history.
If any of you purchase it please let me know. Incidentally it is listed on eBay as a T16s which of course is incorrect.
Some of you may recall a post I put up a few weeks ago entitled “Lets all try to make this a very special day for one true SAAB enthusiast.” http://www.saabsunited.com/?s=Castle+Coombe
Well the day of the event […]
It is with great sadness that we here in the UK have heard that one of our dearest and most ardent SAAB enthusiasts has fallen terminally ill. Many of you will know of Mark, better known by most as Parish, from meeting him at numerous events both here in the UK and abroad. The prognosis of his illness shows that Mark may only be with us for a few more months at best.
It is for that reason I write this article, with the permission of Marks’ wife, to call for as much support as possible from our community at what will almost certainly be the last SAAB event Mark will attend. I hear Mark is very much looking forward to this day where hopefully he will get to see many old faces and friends.
The event which is here in the UK promises to be a fantastic but somewhat poignant day taking into account the circumstances. Sadly Mark has had to sell his beloved Saab which in itself was a very emotional experience for him.
It is our intention to make this event a very special one for both Mark and his family and ask that all SAAB owners who can attend to please come along to this FREE event. The date is the 30th August at Castle Coombe race circuit ( Chippenham, Wiltshire SN14 7EY) ,where, as part of the event, there will also be a special parade lap of the circuit for all SAAB cars that wish to partake. I am certain that Mark will be up there right at the front riding with somebody!! So please, if you can make it, bring your SAAB or any other make of car and join us for this very special day and show how our community is still as strong as ever!
I thank you in advance for your support.

if I had to vote for a designer to take SAAB/NEVS forward it would have to be either Jason or Simon Padian. My heart would be torn 50/50 between them as they both have fantastic vision for the SAAB brand and in […]
