Last week I wrote about how the world media was watching us and how the totals just kept climbing. Never once was I worried about hitting the target, I knew we could do this and that our readers and fans of Saab would support this. Since hitting and surpassing that target, I have been checking to see what has been written in the different media outlets. Below is a list of some of the different links that I have found and what they had to say.
the group’s members raised extra funds to support the museum
Today Saabs United has reached its goal. Collectively over 28,500 euros (about $37,500) has been raised, no small sum. The remaining amount of money will be donated to the Saab Museum in Trollhattan.
The Motor Report
The website’s community scraped together more than enough to pay the roughly $48,000 price for the last 9-3. The group says it will contribute the remaining amount to the Saab Museum.
More than 600 diehard Saab fans have assisted in the collection of the money which will be duly converted to Swedish kronor and transferred to a Swedish bank in order to pay the invoice from ANA, the firm responsible for selling the vehicle.
Congratulations are in order: Saabs United has raised enough money to buy the last Saab 9-3
The initiative was successful, the money accumulated in time.

This is just an unbelievable story to watch, follow and support. I feel that this is something we can all be proud of. This is one of those legacy like moments where we have made a definite difference and it is being felt across the world. What we have all done is saved a car that will be seen by everyone who enters the museum and it will be known to all that the 9-3 was a donation from fans for fans to enjoy. I just want to once again thank everyone that made this vision a reality, we could have never done it without you all.
