    If the Saab 99 becomes an exciting topic at Techno Classica Food, whom can I turn to if I have a story (how I brought 1970 to my first Saab, the brand-new 99er) and maybe photos? ?

    Hm, too bad that everything is so far away, but I'm looking forward to the pictures
    , But to Daihatsu it has to be said that the new car sales were set only in Europe, in Japan they still exist
    , my parents once had Daihatsus, are also very good and durable cars.

    I hope that the presence of our jewelry on the streets will remain as high as it is for a long time. In Austria, the SAAB stock of 2017 on 2018 has fallen by about 5%, in my amount of just about 4500Stk end 2018. If the issue of diesel driving ban will also spread to Austria's cities, and probably will in the next few years, a large part of SAAB's stock will be dedicated to the scrap press. Should then continue to threaten a driving ban for gasoline without OPF or for all gasoline engines under Euro 5 or Euro 6 remain just a handful of cars. Not enough to keep SAAB workshops profitable and probably too little for ORIO. I'm thinking about a year to buy a well-preserved / restored 900 I convertible, but I do not dare to make the investment because I do not know how the topic of fine dust / nitrogen oxides, Euroclasses will develop in the coming 5 years and I do not spend thousands of euros wants to put in the sand.
    Too bad for the youngtimer market and also for the future of the SAAB fleet that is still driving.

      Driving restrictions

      Nothing is eaten as hot as it is cooked. Even as a child, I was afraid that I would ever enjoy driving one of the cars that fascinated me. Or at least a similar one.

      Already forever a Damocles sword hangs over all burners. Has happened since then little. So slowly the sword actually lowers. Are affected (or will be in the future) but especially new registrations. In Norway, Denmark and Sweden, that's the thing. And even there you will be able to drive far beyond 2030 burners. Otherwise you would not allow them to 31.12.2029 new (!).

      Furthermore, possession and ownership in western democracies usually enjoy a higher level of protection. Expropriations in the style of socialist revolutions simply cost too many votes. So I can in D for example, easily with my vintage in every city center, although he has neither a badge nor a Kat and never had to meet any emission standard ...

      In a nutshell: Nothing in the world would currently deter me from a 900 I Convertible or an 900 I Turbo Coupe. And if not now, when did you want to buy, drive and enjoy it?

      This topic is re-recorded daily in the media. Experience teaches that there is always a lot of hot air in the back. The stock of vehicles is constantly renewed, how long is Euro 4 to a large extent still an issue?

      Maybe in the Czech Republic or in other countries, where our well-kept cars hike for little money. Not here anymore. We are to save the environment by buying new cars that consume 0.4 liters less on 100 Km. For the production, we then blow a couple of tons of Co2 into the environment. Bravo!

      Here, the consumer should continue to be consumed. No matter if he can afford it financially or not. I'll stay calm and drive on to Saab. Is more sustainable in the long term.

        Well written, good conclusion. Keep calm and drive SAAB.

        It is a pity that also the motor insurance industry does not know about sustainability.
        The total economic loss and thus the end of the junkyard threatens each SAAB, which does not have at least or already again a five-figure value, even in the case of a minor accident without fault.

        From a sustainability point of view, it is completely unrealistic that every year, as a total economic loss, tens of thousands of cars wander onto the scrap, which could easily be repaired.

        It is also unfortunate that in the meantime up to five-digit amounts are incurred (and paid), if somewhere a more or less newly registered car with all his Schnulli in the still - but now wrongly - so-called bumpers was looked at only wrong ,

        If you place an expensive and extremely sensitive car on the market, you increase the cost risk. With household and building insurance you pay more, if the household is particularly valuable and the building is particularly sensitive and risky. Actually, one would have to reverse the principle of motor insurance and measure the vehicle value and the sensitivity of the vehicle. Both reflect the cost risk. I can not impose my household contents and my buildings on the general public. Why is this different with cars and does it make sense?

      our 9-3s be cared for and get everything that they will continue for very long. In Austria, I believe it will take a long time until there will be driving bans for cars. Now the diesel as good as they are, made unattractive by the high diesel price. Diesel is currently almost expensive as Super +. Thank God there are in Austria Saab workshops lovingly take care of our Saabs to this must stop driving all Saab drivers so that they remain and we can continue our Saabs. I would buy the 900

    Today, I ran into a Rover 75 and an 45 "...

    While the 45 surprised me, they are (almost) extinct in the deep west of the republic and are only conditionally British, but the Rover 75 community seems to me similar to the Saab drivers: they drive, stand on roadsides and in underground garages and do not look after pure consumables.

    Stone me, but I am now about every well-preserved Rover 75, and look in the owners brothers in spirit ...

    Keep Saabing

      Stony?

      Last summer, after years, I finally saw a Rover P5 again, and certainly not smoked my nose, but twisted my neck with widened and glowing eyes. Too bad that I have not seen SD1 for ages. With its hatchback and in this vehicle class that was almost a British SAAB 9000.

      Do not we all enjoy each other when we see a car with rarity value?

      And as I write this I get hungry for a morning 3 course meal accompanied by orange juice and tea and as a main course no less than fried eggs on toast, bacon, sausages, HP sauce, baked beans, fried tomatoes, mushrooms and potatoes and ends with orange jam on toast for dessert ...

      Now I'm hungry. Really hungry. Shit ...

        In my youth, a neighbor (gynecologist) had a Rover 3500 (SD 1) in "sky blue metallic" (my description), I've often run around the great car and yes, from today's perspective, the hatchback in this vehicle class is a British Saab 9000, or the 9000 a Swedish SD 1, very apt!
