It’s been a public holiday here in Hobart and with the beautiful conditions we’ve had today, I hope you’ll forgive me for having made the most of it and enjoying they day. The Wooden Boat Festival was fantastic.
It’s also Valentines Day, an occasion we’ve never covered from a Saaby perspective.
Do you have any Valentines Day Saab stories that are fit for sharing? Did you drive off from your wedding with cans a-clunking from your Saab? Shared a memorable romantic drive? Meet your partner at a Saaby event? Have you ever given/received any Saaby gifts for Valentines day and if so, what sort of punishment did you receive?
It doesn’t have to have happened on V-day, any slightly romantic Saaby story will do.
Send in your stories (photos welcome) and I’ll share them all together later in the week. They can be inspiration for next year 🙂
Congratulations to Nicola on picking up his new Saab 9-5 2.0T Aero. It’s his fifth Saab and the tenth new one in his family since 1982!

Can you imagine a top-ten list where a Saab finishes above a Ford Mustang, a Mitsubishi Evo, a Ferrari F40 and a Bugatti Veyron?
Popular Mechanics has paid tribute to some of the pioneering cars of the turbocharging era. The Saab 99 Turbo is second, with only the Porsche 911 Turbo before it.
It’s a fantastic list and well worth reading.
