A weekly feature where we invite you the SU readers to tell us your stories.
A story about how you met your partner or lifelong friend– was it because of Saab? If you can think of anything that happened in your life because of Saab, we want to hear about it.
If you have a story you would like to tell, email it to the SU crew for publication. Send a few pictures along and we will publish it so the whole SaabsUnited community can have a read.
This weeks story comes from Spikeieos and is told in his own special way.
Here is my list of the “it was because of Saab that…” presented in a bit of a different way. I want to show it as a series of humorous/heartfelt facts. I leave comments on the site as the user spikeieos if you want to leave credit.
