The SU Calendar Twins Are Finally Here…

SU Bild

A while ago we asked you to send your saaby pics for our new calendar. First of all a big thank you to all who participated and made the choice for us as hard as it was. This time we ended up creating two different calendars. One is a picture calendar and the other one a planner version with more room to put in notes, dates and birthdays.

The calendars can be purchased via the SaabsUnited store on cardyourcar.eu. We skipped postal delivery because it has proven to be pretty unreliable and utterly slow. If you order from abroad we’d recommend to team up with fellow Saabers and make a group order. Sorry for that but since we had 20% missing/returned shipments this seemed to be the only secure way to go.

re-posted SaabsUnited Calendar 2014 – we want your photos!

Just a reminder, we are open for entries for the calendar for another two weeks. So if you have some time to spare over the weekend to check your hard drive – keep the photos coming!

At the end of last year we asked you to send in your photos for a SaabsUnited Calendar. It has been the first time we did that and with 500+ calendars sold one can say it has been pretty successful.

Since the year is slowly turning to an end again we open our email for your photo entries again. This year saw, among many other events, a Saab festival so I am sure many of you will have images on their harddrive that would fit our calendar well. We do not have a general demand on the size of the photos but remember that it should preferably have 200 dpi in the final size of A4 or A3.

Please send your images via mail to su @ tilldrescher.de .

While last year we made a dedicated calendar for the 9-3 II we hope to get enough entries to come up with another special calender on some topic. We have not yet decided which one that should be so feel free to let us know what you would prefer.

Another topic you can leave your opinion on is the size of the calendar. Some people liked the small version we had last year while others would have liked it a bit bigger. So we might come up with an additional larger version in the size of A3 (approx. 420×300 cm).

Polish Saabers build calendar for 2011

I haven’t done a desktop calendar here for a few months, so this is a nice little reminder for me to get out there and harvest a few more photos.

The good people at Saabturbo.pl have held a good natured competition with people submitting photos for inclusion in a calendar running from Nov 2010 to May 2012 (an 19 month calendar).

The ‘winners’ can be viewed here at Picasa. They’re all fantastic shots, so congratulations to all involved.

Here are a few samples…..

If I’ve figured out the credits right, then this one was taken by J Depo:

BONUS – there’s also a 2011 calendar based on photos from the Saab Support Convoys held in Poland.

You can view a PDF version of that calendar at Google Docs.

I absolutely love this sort of stuff. It’s the sort of thing that the Saab Pride campaign of a few years ago was built on – people going out of their way to show their cars off at their best.

It’s also really encouraging for those concerned to have their Saabs appreciated so much by their fellow club members.

Does your club do a similar thing each year?

SU Desktop Calendar – May 2010

It’s a new month so it’s time for a new desktop calendar for your computer.

This magnificent image was taken by Mioh. The picture was taken at Hjälmare Kanal and the car is his Saab 900 Aero convertible from 1993. The photo was taken during the 2008 Saab Cabrio Challenge, a driving event that was organised by none other than Jorgen T, the guy behind the Saabs United Historic Rally Team.

The image is a massive one, which you can then re-size to suit your desktop.

Thanks again to the Calendar Guy for putting it together!

SU Calendar – February 2010

January 2010 will always be remembered as the down of a new era for Saab, and rightly so.
But for me, as a Saab blogger, the month will forever be associated with the efforts we all made together to keep Saab in the spotlight and support the company.
Hence, it seems only right that a Saab Support Convoy feature as the wallpaper for this month. More than that, it’s fitting that the photo comes from Holland, where the whole idea started.
This image was taken by Aart Goedhart and the way the low sun is hitting the cars, setting them off with a golden hue, is a fitting remembrance of what was a magical occasion. OK, so it doesn’t reflect the freezing cold weather, but it looks good 🙂

Thanks to Aart for the permission, to David J (driving the convertible) for the idea and of course, thanks to Calendar Guy for the treatment.
Griffin Up!

SU Desktop calendar/wallpaper – November 2009

Whilst you stragglers might be stuck in October, it’s November in my part of the world, which means it’s time for another Saabs United desktop calendar. This month Calendar Guy and I are giving you something different – choice.
The location will be familiar with anyone who’s travelled east from Trollhattan by road. It’s the Viggen-on-a-stick along Highway 44. A bunch of us stopped here a few years ago on our way back from Kinnekulle race track during the Saab Festival and the group photo just grew and grew as more cars arrived 🙂
This month’s calendar images feature a new Saab 9-3 SS, which was recently purchased by our mate, Dippen. The photos themselves were taken by Dippen’s brother and we liked them so much that we decided to calendarise both of them.
Click to enlarge and then re-size to suite your needs.

My thanks to Dippen and to Calendar Guy for another job well done.

SU Desktop Calendar – October 2009

It’s a new month and that means it’s time for a new desktop calendar.
This month features a little snap I took in Sweden whist driving the Saab 9-3x. I knew as soon as I viewed this shot on the back screen of my little Canon that the photo would end up here. It was a great car to drive and the experience of driving it so close to it’s home was one that I’ll remember for a long time.
This calendar is set up as a 1920 x 1200 pixel image, suitable for a 24-inch widescreen. You can click to enlarge and then re-size it to your needs.
