Just to qualify why I think SAAB’s are such great cars, i’ll be attempting to create a photographic memoir of my other cars since the late 80s. To me, the 6 SAAB’s i’ve also owned really have stood out as far superior ‘lifestyle’ cars, and by that I mean they are great to live with, day in, day out.
Some, such as a 1970’s VW Bettle won’t appear unless I stumble across an old photograph I can scan and upload, others, such as an awful Volvo 340 won’t appear either, because it was a mistake purchase, kept for less than a month and regretted ever since.
I’ll begin with A’s
And on to the B’s
And some others between C and Z
L is for Lexus GS300h F Sport: Exclusive, understated style, exceptionally cosseting, silent and efficient. This is the car that has replaced my beloved 9-3 Hirsch TTiD, it’s not a Saab but to me, a far superior choice than any current competition that you see on every driveway in England.
Note: This is now my everyday driver, it can’t replace a Saab and won’t be featured anywhere else on this blog, neither should it.
M for Mercedes; The current one before the arrival of the mighty SAAB 9-3. An extremely enjoyable car, but in a very relaxed, mellow way. Wind the pillerless windows down and enjoy, I’ll be a little sad to see this one go!
