In the past, I’ve gone away from Saab for a few months, dabbled in other brands; mainly BMW, Mercedes, Audi and Alfa Romeo, but then I return to Saabs.
Those of you who regularly read this site, will know that for the past year, we’ve been an exclusive Saab family, selling my faithful Mercedes Coupe and my wife’s BMW 1 series, and replacing them with 3 gorgeous Saabs.
Recently, I was browsing through my ridiculously large collection of past cars and came across one of my old Saabs – a stunning cosmic blue 9-5 HOT Aero saloon. It literally made me stop and stare, even now, I love its styling, the shape, the lights, the luxuriously comfortable interior – it really is a seriously gorgeous Saab. Then I started to think that maybe we could squeeze another 9-5 Aero into our current collection, I slapped myself, bad idea.
All of this Saab dreaming got me to wondering if others felt the same, see a great Saab picture, and start planning purchase tactics, I just can’t seem to help myself.
Although the current situation isn’t looking good for a new range of Saabs in the future, I really believe we’ll start to see a lot more unique Saabs about. Loving owners will be looking for new parts suppliers to ensure their cars remain immaculate and they’ll be looking for specialists to service, tune and rebuild engines.
All this will lead to great Saabs being available to own, drive and love for a long, long time, and I just can’t seem to help digging around to see what I can find, a serial Saabist maybe.
