Two’s company, three’s a crowd. Maybe not.

This Saturday, we took a giant leap of faith (or maybe stupidity) and collected another SAAB; yep, we now have three SAABs on the drive.

I’ve known the owner of this classic 900 convertible for almost 15 years, and always (jokingly) said that if he wanted to sell, i’d be there. A few weeks ago, we started an email conversation about the aforementioned car, and over the weekend, we collected it.

Looking slightly sorry for itself, it hasn’t been driven much over Winter, the roof desperately needs reproofing, condensation is beginning to get inside and the drivers window has given up the ghost. It needs some serious TLC.

Saab vs Scepticism started off with posts about 1 very special 9-3, but as our small family collection grows, I realise it’s beginning to be more about the SAAB way of life, which hopefully, the 900 will add yet another layer too.

The Winter has really set in now, so I’ll have to wait a while before I can get my hands dirty. I’ll be attempting to take a few photos of the new family member as soon possible, but for now, the classic convertible will be ploughing through dirty and snowy roads until we are graced by the arrival of Spring.

  1. Congratulations and best wishes for your new, old Saab acquisition. Regardless of Saab’s current situation you’ve made a decision that is right for your family and I think it is a beautiful car you’ve added.

    I should also admit that we have 4 Saabs for two drivers, only after cutting back from 6. Perhaps I’m not the person to offer sage advice on car buying. 😉

    Cheers

      Yep, I think you’re right, I have always loved the 900 convertible, a real modern classic, and am looking forward to giving it some TLC. I see I have some catching up to do in terms of my SAAB collection though, mind you, only one more then we have 4!

      Thanks for the comment, really nice to know people read and enjoy the blog.
