    I hate being away from home. At least I’ve got you, Richo. —— I’ve had a hardcopy version of this for a while, but seeing I’ve had a number of people email it to me in the last few days, I figure it must have just been released online. What am I talking about? It’s the Hirsch 2008...

    If the planets align correctly, I might actually get a Turbo X to drive next week! We’ll see. I’ve got the go ahead from Saab Oz, it’s just whether or not our local dealer needs the car for demos during the week. There’s only one Turbo X for the press here in Oz and it doesn’t make it’s way...

    So, about the Saab-i newsletter thingy today. Yes, I did know it was coming. Saab USA’s ad agency, McCann Erikson, got in touch with me around a month ago to seek permission to do it. I think they’re going to feature a number of Saab enthusiast sites over the coming months. —— Whilst it...

    Memo to Autoblog - I’m still here. Autoblog were giving the Turbonines forum a kickstart (in a very unusual entry, I must say) and mentioned that TS is under a cloud and the future is uncertain here! Well, it is, sort of…..But only I’m allowed to say that! The comments are a classic both in...

    This video’s been doing the rounds of the automotive blogosphere today and I just had to share it here, too, for those who haven’t seen it yet. It’s a corporate propaganda video from Mercedes Benz called “That’s how we beat them all” - and it’s so incredibly tacky and bad bad BAD that you’ll...

    Still off with the flu. Am in DVD-watching mode. Today it’s Charlie Wilson’s War. —— When I write about it (back on June 19), it’s a rumour. Now Automotive News cover it, it’s a fact. <blockquote>General Motors, citing the weak U.S. dollar, is ending its 7 percent employee discount on...

    There’s not much to write about this evening, but here’s a few interesting tidbits… —— Previous announcements about the Saab 9-5 showing at the Geneva Motor Show in 2009 were based on representatives hearing this at a recent GM dealer conference in Germany. It’s not that there was any...

    There’s lots of interesting reading and viewing out there today….. —— For the car photography buffs, there’s an article from Autoweek about….car photography. There’s no earth shattering revelations here but there are some good tips if you read it closely. The main grab I got from it was...

    It’s with no small amount of sadness that I report the closure of yet another stand-alone Saab dealer in the US. With a restricted range that wasn’t grown like it should have been, dealers haven’t been able to meet the diverse model requirements of buyers and yes, I do lay the blame at the...

    It’s been an interesting few days: —— The lucky Saab nuts who scored a trip to Spain to drive the Turbo X on a top secret track there have come back gushing with stories about 240km/h drives and the general magnificence of the track and the event in general. I hope to bring a few of those...

    What percentage of Saab US sales would you expect to be SportCombis? The answer’s interesting seeing it’s such a cool car. —— Blog-watchers might like to note that GM Europe has a blog now, called Driving Conversations. The first post is from Carl-Peter Forster. I think this is sort of...

    Occasional commenter, 9-5 owner and native New Yorker, Blix, was present at the Saab/Reflection clothing shindig the other night. She’s posted a number of great shots over at Flickr as well as a little bit of 9-3 Convertible gossip —— Saab Sweden have issued an upbeat press release...

    From the Audi were in worse shape than Saab is now in the mid 1990’s file comes the news that audi employees were all paid bonuses that averaged out to 5,300 Euros for 2007. That worked out to over 220 million Euros in total. Saab could be that good, too. I just takes investment, faith, and...

    Those who read and watched all the recent executive interviews from Geneva with regard to the possibility of a car being produced from the Saab BioHybrid concept would have noticed the cautious tone used. The car was something that a future 9-1 could look like if it were to be made. There’s...

    Aside from Cuba at Saab Central, I don’t think I’ve come across any prime time Saab nuts in New Zealand (I think you’re more of an interested party, Robin C, right?). That’s changed. <blockquote>Although the Poelsmas bought the building for its traditional architecture and its appeal was...

    I’m comfortable in my own mind that recent writing here about the Toyota Aurion had it’s place as a reminder that Saabs are great cars for reasons that I sometimes forget, given that I’m in Saabs pretty much all the time. But by the same token, I know that as far as vehicle comparisons go, I...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    And I've picked up my Saab 9-5 2.3T Estate :D Sorry, it's a pointless post but I'm happy :thumbsup: So how do I post pictures?

    As you may know, Saab USA are offering free Aero Academy driving courses to the first 100 Turbo-X customers in the US. I’m reliably told that as of December 22, there were 73 slots left out of 100. So is that reflecting slower sales of the car, or a slow uptake of the Aero Academy course...

    Tonight we see Priscilla: Queen of the Desert - The Musical! —— Today I went and watched my beloved Carlton Football Club at training. All you Blues supporters, and I know there’s millions of you (NOT), you’ll be happy to know that Nick Stevens was training well, and that Bryce Gibbs has...
