Since 2011 I’ve run Saab vs. Scepticism, a cliché I know, a creative who loves Saab, yes, yes, heard it all before. But the thing is, Saabs are and always will be simply stunning cars, Saabs become part of your family, a tradition that passes through generations and inspire you to take the road less traveled. They really are unique, yes I love Porsches, yes I love Alpina, but Saabs, always Saabs

I'd established something called the High Mile Club, a place to celebrate these mile honoured Saabs, so this is the rebirth of that club. The criteria used to be 100,000 Miles, but as our Saabs get older and continue to be driven and enjoyed, the new criteria of 125,000 Miles seems more realistic. If you'd like your Saab featured, feel free to join the club by filling in the form.

 

A Saab High Mile Story…

“I had my first Saab (green 99) in the 70’s. It was a company car and I liked it very much. Later I had other jobs but no Saab anymore. One day, sometime late 90’s,
my wife needed a new car and I saw this red Saab 900i convertible for sale
(second hand). I told my wife, we went immediately to see our local Saab dealer
and bought it on the spot. The car is a 1990 model.

My wife drove it daily until she died a few years ago. I decided not to sell it ( I have a second car), but I still drive it daily leaving my other car in the car park. It is really fun to drive this Saab, especially in warm weather and with the roof open. Even my children come and use it in sunny weather. It now has 261,564 km.

All the best with your efforts to keep Saab up, from Belgium.

“First SAAB a ’69 96 went over 100,000 but 10 years living in East Coast U.S. salt did it in. Currently driving a 1978 99 with over 400,000 miles on it, recently having had upgrades of the suspension, brakes, gearbox and steering by Atomic Auto in Portland Oregon–a truly great shop. The car is even better than new”

A Saab High Mile Story…

“I owned the silver-grey Saab 9-3 that is already on the list with 294492 kilometers. I sold the car at 382544 kilometers in December 2013 to make room for my dream car, a Saab 9-3 2.0T Aero Convertible, Hirsch stage 2 in Ice-blue.

I bought it from the first owner in December 2013 at 175000 kilometers. It is really a fantastic car which touched 300.000km in December 2016. Every day I smile from ear to ear”
