It’s a good thing we can’t afford it…

Saab 900 Talladega in Red

Saab 900 Talladega in Red from SaabHistory.com

I’ve mentioned all too often here recently my frustration with our personal financial  concerns and among other things, not being able to afford new Saabs to more actively support the brand.

Similarly, we aren’t purchasing ANYTHING that isn’t absolutely necessary for survival these days.

Pictured above is a Saab 900 Talladega which I believe dates from the early 1990’s.  I saw one of these cars in person this week and was heart-broken to learn that the owner might consider selling this beautiful car, and we can’t even begin to consider buying it.  The car was simply gorgeous and would look great at our house.   😉

What did make me smile (aside from parking one of our red Saab 9-3’s next to the 900) was to learn that the Talladega is owned by a woman who purchased a new car for daily driving, but she has kept the 900 because after all of these years, she still LOVES the 900 and can’t bear to part with it.  I met a family member of the owner of the 900 and did not ask if the Talladega owner purchased another Saab or not.

It simply amazes me to find out how many people love their Saabs and don’t want to ever sell them, just like our little Saab family.

If you’ve never owned or driven a Saab, visit Saab.com learn more about current Saab models, special financing offers from Saab or to locate your nearest Saab dealer and take a test drive.

Find out for yourself why Saab owners are so passionate about their cars.  It isn’t just a car;  it’s a Saab.   🙂
