Just to keep the news rolling on….
One of my good mates in Saab dealer-land is Darryl Carl at New Salem Saab. He’s a guy whose family has been in the Saab business more than just about anyone, and who very nearly had to close up shop when things got difficult around 12 months ago.
With some good outside-the-box thinking (the Albany Speed Shop) and a bucketload of hard work to secure financing, New Salem Saab are still in business and I’m pleased to report they have recently received their first delivery of the new Saab 9-5.
If you’re in the area, drop in and say g’day to Darryl and take the new 9-5 for a spin. I’m sure he would love to see you!
I met Darryl in person for the first time last week in Boston and he was kind enough to dig something out of the storage cupboards and present it to me. It’s one of the best Saab items I’ve ever received – a genuine 1978 Saab Turbo rain jacket!
Will have to get a photo up soon.
