SAAB Talk: on the way and mail from Sweden

A Saab is at home on long runs, and probably the longest distance in recent days Max has covered with his friends in the Saab 9-5. He traveled from the Rhine-Main area to Trollhättan, visits the Saab Museum, and there is a compulsory photo in front of the Saab plant for the readers. Cool. Have fun in sweden!

Trollhättan in winter is a delightful story that I have never experienced before. But maybe someday ...

Post from Sweden

Also from Sweden came in the last few days post. The editors of the Aftonbladet sent the current issue of "Bil Magazin" with the article of the 9-5 II sports suit and gave me a lot of fun!

The Story was created with the help of Saab Service Kiel and little support from the blog. While the driving report of the Saab 9-5 station wagon still goes through the print media, we still have to be patient. The author is seeking approval and, if everything works as we hope, will bring the full story with all the backgrounds here on the blog. Impatient readers can download the paid version of the text online Aftonbladet read.

Car transporter on the way to the Baltics

When Saab fans are on the road, they are happy to see other Saabs. Our brand has become rare in the street scene, since Saab has almost completely disappeared from the company fleets. Thomas was working on A2 towards Poland when he overtook two car transporters who had loaded Saabs. Apparently on the way to the Baltics, the first truck had loaded three Saab 900, truck number two, three Saab 9000.

In Poland and the Baltic States, there is a strong Saab community, also there are increasingly restored vintage and Youngtimer cost. That would be the good variant that comes to my mind about these transports. The less good thing would be for the Swedes to make their last trip to Russia as cheap second-hand cars. That would be sad and the Saab world would be poorer by a few cars.

News from Spyker & Victor Muller

In March, the motor show starts in Geneva. Without Saab involvement, which would otherwise have been a surprise. Another surprise sparks Spyker and Victor Muller out of their hats. If what the press reports in Sweden, then Muller will present a new vehicle at the Spyker booth. It should "... be a big surprise ..."So Muller to Sweden radio.

Now we've had the word "surprise" three times in a few sentences, and that's fine. Mark, Yves and I will be in Geneva. We will be surprised ;-).

  • Currently you can find in 65 9000er. A year ago, it was about 100. The stock is getting scarcer and who does not buy now or hesitates too long, the missed the last chance.

  • For Germany or its Saabfreunde there would have been plenty of opportunities. I do not think that the cars in the Baltics would have necessarily worse, just because we rather have the unfamiliar repair methods or recurring wrecks on there registered car transporters in mind - quite the opposite:
    Before the wagons are flattening the wheels here or wandering into the bin, there is at least still substance utilization "there".
    What spoke for example against the Luebecker with its nearly 500.000km? An original, driving Anniversary for not even 1000 Euro VB ?! If neglected he would certainly not have reached this mileage ... now he may well make his million in colder climes. Good luck, so unknown.
    Semi-profitable 9000er increasingly from the three-digit price regions disappear quickly from the automotive boersen - is it a matter of disdain that here is waiting for finished 9000er, the dealer waiting lists are full, while somewhere strangely times Naegel be done with heads? Certainly they will not be any more!

  • Unfortunately, there is no picture of the first transporter with the 900er charge. Front is an 9000 Anniversary to see, that's right. Much is being restored or restored in the Baltic States, but is first lost for Germany, which is a pity.

  • Is there a picture of the 900er van?
    What I have noticed so far, let me hope: good 9000er go increasingly in the east ... while dt interested parties still quarrel and need three days to search for the right train ride, are from there for a long time vans on the road and the next morning at the vendor - that's the way it is done, so you get, if you stay close to it, to good cars, and so I'm also guaranteed that the car lives on.
    To be honest, I am glad to see a picture of such a transporter!
    At the top I think I recognize an 9000 Anniversary ... looks suspiciously like the one who was offered (in Scandinavian hands) for some time in Luebeck, with 470.000km, most recently for 890 Euro VB. Yes, there comes joy - keep it up! 🙂

  • I first see Trollhättan at the SAAB festival. I'm looking forward to it!

  • Hey Tom,

    We know the place in front of the Saab sign



  • Good morning.

    Max really has a very, very nice car! 😉

    I am looking forward to the report on the "Kiel Kombi" - hopefully it will appear (and at least a bit in German, because unfortunately my Swedish is unfortunately limited to "hej" .. and even that is probably still being misunderstood )!
