The current owner of the car had called me two days ago saying he had someone else who was interested in the car but willing to pay 500 Euro more. He said I was still first in line to buy the car for the price we had agreed, 4000 Euro, but he would like an answer by Monday, or he would sell to the other guy. I don't blame him, 500 Euro is no chump change.
I actually was not really looking to purchase a car for another month or so, I need the car because we have a baby on the way, but
The first two of a series of auctions will soon take place for Saabs at ports in the United States. Ally Financial obtained a court judgment to the cars after Saab missed payments on the cars. About 900 Saabs have been in storage in Newark (near New York), Port Hueneme (near Santa Barbara, California), and Brunswick, Georgia. There are a few cars in other locations, including a few in Sweden.
I drove down to Heidenheim today to look at a stunning SAAB 9-5 Combi. These are the obligatory pictures from the drive:
Map, water, wallet, camera and SAAB, I am ready to go

Today is the United States Army's 237th birth day. On 14 June 1775 the Continental Army was established, before the creation of the United States, to meet the demands of the Revolutionary War. In 3 June 1784 the United States Army was officially created by the Congress, and it has its roots on the Continental Army.
Never mind the politics that move the Army and what it does for the United States Government.
Now that NEVS is set to own the Saab car company and plans to build a 9-3 electric car while it develops a car based on the Phoenix platform, a look at the past may give hints of the future.
In 2010, Saab issued a press release. This is an excerpt.
Targets to be verified include a projected driving range of approximately 200 kilometers through the use of high density energy storage in lithium-ion battery cells.
The Saab ePower is the first electric vehicle
