This is slightly embarrassing for me as I prefer the public stuff to be about Saab and about you and your Saabs, but I can’t not post these after a few mates went to the trouble of shooting them and sending them in.
These two blokes are good mates of mine and regulars here at SU. One I’ve met in person and the other I’ll definitely buy dinner for next time I’m in Germany.
From deep in the heart of BMW country, this is Till72 and Olaf95 having their own little SaveSU Convoy 🙂
The two black cars belong to the Till72 family and the white 9-5 belongs to Olaf.
Incidentally, those two are off to the Saab Arctic Adventure up in northern Sweden this weekend. I’m expecting Olaf’s photographic work to be outstanding and I know Till’s going to have some fun to report.
The ex-GM Heritage Collection Saab 9-3 Viggen for sale on Ebay is now up to $18,600 though the reserve is still to be reached.

And for those thinking I’m being a little sizeist there, zip it. I’m as big as any of you.
Speaking of the Teutonic competition, this article from Bloomberg does a good job of spelling out just how much demand there is for larger luxury vehicles.
Audi AG buyers must wait an average of three to four months for cars like the $52,700 A6 sedan as the company runs factories at full steam in an effort to keep pace with record demand, sales chief Peter Schwarzenbauer said.
“If sales continue to grow like this, it’ll be difficult to say how long it could take to reduce waiting times,” Schwarzenbauer said yesterday in a phone interview from Audi’s headquarters in Ingolstadt, Germany. “We’re working at full capacity at our plants and may add extra shifts on Saturdays.”
Many of might consider the 9-5 to be too big, but there’s definitely a big market for cars like this when the manufacturer gets the formula right.
Thanks to Curvin for the tip!
Norwegian magazine prognosticates on the possibility of a smaller Saab…..

I say “No”
