Should old acquaintance be forgot?

The death of Saab as a car brand has taken its toll on Saabs United. Many readers and writers have moved on to other brands. News about Saab is more and more scarce and it is harder to find anything interesting to report about. I have had a quite hectic year and have not written anything in a long time. I’ve had a couple of ideas in mind, but I never realized any of them.

Then something happened, I discovered Saab Cars Magazine and got inspired to write again. I’m not really qualified to do this at all. I am not a very good writer, I do not know many facts about Saab, and I’m a lousy photographer. But I do love the brand and have decided to contribute to Saabs United from time to time.

I miss many of the old writers and stewards of Saabs United. Swade has moved back to Australia and started to work for Brabham Automotive. I don’t know what Tim do these days.

Swade, Tim, Rune, RedJ, Trued and everyone else who used to write for Saabs United, it would be really nice if you occasionally would like to write a line or two again! I think all of us readers would appreciate that a lot. (log-in and comment if you agree)

Like myself, all readers can contribute to Saabs United. Press the contribute button if you have anything to share! That’s what I did a few years back when I wrote my first post about rust proofing. I encourage everyone to do the same.

I would also like to reach out to Claes Johansson at Saab Cars Magazine. Perhaps you would like to contribute to Saabs United? It may raise more international readers for the Saab Car Magazine!

  1. Bonjour,
    Il y a des années que je ne suis pas venu ici, en fait depuis les années noires du début des 2010’s.
    Cela fait plaisir de voir qu’il y a encore de la vie 😉
    Saabistement vôtre

  2. Hello. Yes, and indeed I miss my Saabs and the banter on this site. Sadly, the vultures picked over the skeletal remains of our dear Saab, (some while she was still breathing) and all is left is their putrid droppings on the drying bones of our dear Saab.
    Occasionally, I spy a Saab on the road, and I smile.
    Thank you for maintaining this site.

  3. Saab are very much a part of my daily life still… Have three, a 2009 9-5 Aero Wagon, a [2008] Turbo-X wagon and a 2002 9-5 Linear Wagon. The newer cars are daily drivers (yes, the Turbo-X is too – my wife won’t let me have it…) and the oldest serves as “get stuff with from the lumber yard and garden supply store”.
    I am lucky to have a very talented and dedicated Saab mechanic only a mile from my house – his father was one of the first Saab dealers in New England! So far, only a few parts have become made of “Unobtanium”.

    I check out the web site every now and then to see if anything has happened. Still hope to visit the Saab Museum in Trollhättan one day.
    Please keep this site going!

    • I have always wanted to drive a Turbo-X! I recommend visitig Trollhättan at the time of the Saab festival. Right now the museum is closed due to corona. Let’s hope your dreams come true, the museum is definitely worth a visit!
