A few weeks ago, the New South Wales branch of the Saab Car Club of Australia held an event. I showed some photos of it last week.
One of the cars that wasn’t included in that group of photos was this beautiful red 900 Aero.
The car belongs to a guy named Wayne G and it’s currently up for sale. Wayne got in touch with the club about selling the car a few weeks before the club event and was subsequently invited to go along, which he did.
Last Friday I was in Sydney and as is normally the case, I caught up with a few of the Sydney Saab fraternity for dinner. Wayne was also invited along to that event and again, he brought along the red 900 for us all to ogle at. It really is quite a special car (and yes, Pete, you should buy it).
Over dinner, one of our SU regulars (and member of the unofficial SU Board) named PT got talking to Wayne, who as it turns out, has owned quite a few Saabs over the years and has a number under ownership right now. In fact, he’s only selling the 900 Aero because he’s just bought another Saab and needs to create some space for it.
The Saab he’s just bought is a 9-3 Viggen and as PT asked him about, it started ringing a few bells – enough for PT to get me involved in the conversation.
