SAABs We Have Owned

SAABs We Have Owned

As individuals and as a family of SAAB owners, the list impresses even me. Today, with the last new SAAB having been built over a decade ago, it becomes more difficult to see how this list may grow in the future, but I thought it would be fun to actually create the list. My memory will need jogging, I’m sure. So this is likely to grow and gain accuracy over time.

Initially, I will list those cars that were or are mine as an individual. From there, I’m going to jump to the family.

Here’s what Annalisa and I, as a couple, currently own:

  1. 1959 Quantum Two (SAAB powered H-modified)
  2. 1992 900 Turbo Convertible in Beryl Green
  3. 2000 9-3 Viggen 5-door in Silver
  4. 2007 9-3 Sport Combi in Fusion Blue

 

Here’s what we’ve owned as a couple, but have moved on via one method or another:

  1. 1974 Sonett III – my first car (technically, I still own this car, but it is an incomplete pile of parts as I’ve given away most of it to one person or another, but there is still a chassis somewhere)
  2. 1972 Sonett III (technically, I still own this car, but really just the title, VIN plate, and an incomplete pile of parts)
  3. 1979 900 5-door, started life brown but I painted it dark blue, never finished or drove it (legally). Pre-dates Annalisa.
  4. 1982 900 Turbo in Dark Blue (short lived ownership as the transmission failed and I needed a replacement quickly for driving to college)
  5. 1986 900 Turbo 3-door in Malachite Green over tan fabric (sold to a friend)
  6. 1989 900 SPG in Eduardian Gray (failed restoration project, scrapped)
  7. 1989 9000 Turbo in Dark Blue (scrapped)
  8. 1990 9000 Turbo in Dark Blue (sold)
  9. 1990 900 SPG in Special Black (sold to a neighbor, from whom it was stolen)
  10. 1992 900 S 3-door in Scarabe Green (sold when we moved back to Delaware)
  11. 1994 9000 Aero in Black (scrapped)

 

Here’s what my parent’s own currently:

  1. 1959 Quantum One (SAAB powered H-modified)
  2. 1963 Quantum Formula S (SAAB powered single seater formula car)
  3. 1968 Sonett V4 (#1635, aka “SONEAT”, the Sonett with the roof cut off)

  5. 2008 9-3 Sport-Combi Aero in Red over Parchment
