  • Saab drivers meet in Seattle, September 8, 2012

    On Saturday, September 8, 2012, there was a gathering of Saab owners at Scanwest Autosport in Seattle. Scanwest Autosport is a Saab garage that will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2013. Every year in September, Scanwest invites its customers for a Customer Appreciation Barbeque.

    Besides the lunch, the parking area in front of the shop is cleared to allow display of some of the attendees' nice Saabs. There are promotional items for guests, including key chains, pens, posters, and some other items.

    Well over 30 customers' Saabs were parked in front and on the street in front of the garage, ranging from two stroke Saab 96's to classic 900's to current model 9-3's. Some were highly modified, others were in pristine shape, not much different from when they left the factory. Scanwest customers from all over of the Seattle area, even as far as Vancouver, British Columbia, came to the lunch.

    Scanwest Autosport is located at 9520 Greenwood Avenue N. in Seattle.

      No, I don't use Instagram and am not @KR900. I heard of someone that stopped using their first name and started using their first initial after there was a local murderer with the same name!

      OK, it's just that @KR900 on Instagram posted a picture that is almost the exact same as the second one you did, same cars, same angle...

      Rpiereck, KR900 is Kevin [forget his last name]. I believe he has either a red 9000 or a black C900 with a yellow rally stripe. Or not [blush].

      Great article, Dave. Don't worry about redacting my plate, all the local law enforcement agencies have it on file already. [just kidding].

    There is a check valve near the throttle body that fails and will cause oil leaks. About the size of an American quarter in diameter. Iíd replace that
