Pictures tell stories. And sometimes the story behind the picture is tragic. Our Saab Instagram Picture of the Month November comes from Max. The motive is a nice 9000 Anniversary. Max is a big Saab fan - and he especially loves the Saab 9000. Unfortunately, he is no longer in his possession.
When the picture landed in our mailbox, his Saab world was still fine. The Anniversary was on the road as a winter car, and Max was happy. Until a certain evening in November, when the Saab changed hands. And in the way that is called cold expropriation. The place where the 9000 had been parked in the morning before work, Max found empty at the end of the day. The Saab was gone, stolen.
The police theft was, of course, typical of the Saab brand. The dialogue between Max and the official must have expired as follows.
Police: "You miss a vehicle? Which brand?"
High: "A Saab, a Saab 9000"
Police: "Oh a Saab 9000? The best car I ever drove. I have to admit, I belong to the circle of suspects. "
Unfortunately, the Saab has been lost to this day and the chances of finding it are slim. Originally the 9k was traveling in Switzerland, was brought to Germany by Markus Lafrentz and bought by Max. For the spring larger investments were on the plan. Maybe, at best, the Saab has another life. He travels through the area somewhere in the East or in the Baltics, with people who appreciate good and robust technology.
The question remains, how long will Max endure without an 9000? Forecasts the blog team likes to accept.
