We want to revive an old idea and integrate readers and their love for Saab more closely into the blog. Today we start under the motto “Saab stories 2019!” our campaign for the current year. The motto is new and the requirements for the stories have also changed somewhat.
In the years before it was often about how you came to Saab, what you have been able to experience with the brand since then, we would like stories from the now for 2019. Unfiltered - just like life is. Because times have not gotten easier since the factory gates in Sweden were closed in 2011. A rough wind is blowing in our faces, the zeitgeist is against old, analog cars. Preserving and using objects for longer would actually be a logical consequence when it comes to the sustainable management of the planet. But the opposite is true. The car per se seems to have become a disposable item. And a trend reversal is not in sight.
Unfiltered: Saab stories 2019!
How is it in everyday life with an older Saab? What do you experience, how do friends, colleagues and the family react? With indulgence, enthusiasm or compassion? How do you keep the Saab alive, what do you do with spare parts and workshops, how do you optimize or restore the old Swedes?
A wide range of topics for the “Saab stories 2019!”. Challenging, but also interesting. What about the fans, how hard does the Saab heart beat in everyday life? Write to us, it's worth it!
Because we award each published article with a historical one board wallet from the Saab-Scania time, which we have refined a bit. The exclusive portfolios were already 2017 our thanks for Saab stories. We have two more boxes from the estate of Saab Germany and revive the action.
The folder contains Saab notepads, which are available as classic and youngtimer versions. The individual pages are designed differently, 8 different motifs from the history of the brand can be discovered. An Orio ballpoint pen, two SaabBlog stickers and a sticker with the legendary Saab Troll make the board folder a collector's item. The Troll is the reprint of an original sticker from the 70s that was never exposed to UV radiation. That is why it shines full of optimism like on the first day and, in contrast to other sun-faded reprints, corresponds to the original.
