Arguing about Saab passion will be easier in the future because there are at least 35 qualified reasons that speak for the brand. Just as many readers' articles were published during our Ursaab action. Each one was a clear, partial, very personal statement for Saab.
It was exciting weeks for the blog team, and the action was a lot of fun. Not only could I learn a lot from it. For example, that it does not depend on the age of the vehicles.
Saab drive = lived sustainability
The readers keep writing it. You can be very relaxed with a not so young Saab or an upcoming classic. Presumably, the pilots flying Saab classic cars and classics are not only the happier, but also the more prudent road users. They love their vehicles and are more aware of them than the drivers of interchangeable leasing vehicles. Who drives with the knowledge car, that nothing more of his favorite brand, will handle his vehicle more carefully.
You save yourself short distances, drive more defensively, leaves the car in case of doubt, rather than ruining the Swedish sheet metal in snow and ice. At the same time, one cares more about care and value retention. All this is lived sustainability - good for the environment and true conservation of resources.
Saab is often a family thing
Saab is very often a family thing. Most of the parents were already traveling in a Saab, sometimes the grandparents. Saab goes into the third generation, is passed on in the family; Often a Saab was a lifesaver. Of course, this is always the case with other brands. But in such a strong form only with us.
No question of money
Those who opt for an older car sometimes do so, although they could afford a more expensive, more modern vehicle. Saab as understatement, as a sign of good automotive taste. The car is not a prestige object. This is the trend of the times, and readers on the blog are at the forefront. Not always completely voluntary, but also conditioned by the situation.
Now the fans have the floor!
Readers now have 5 days to decide. Who delivered the best Saab story? Not easy, because there was a lot of passion and Saab enthusiasm in every article.
The agony of choice lies with the fans, we from the blog are outside! The vote will run until the 20. March. Deadline is at 23.59, and next weekend the winner will be announced - and our Ursaab will have a new owner.
Good luck to all participants!
