I frequently see Saabs throughout the Portland, Maine region, but this past weekend was quite a rare occurrence.

soc2008.jpgThis week’s Saab sighting of the week, is none other than a 1996 Saab 9000 Aero. This Saab sighting was not just another person’s transportation, it was clearly owned by an enthusiast. It was a nice sign to randomly see a Saab with Connecticut plates touting both a 2008 Saab Owners Convention sticker in the rear window as well as an Aero emblem on the hood.

By sharing this information here on Saab History, we can hope that the rightful owner of this car can give us some more insight into their interest and passion for the Saab Automobile brand.

    That’s my Aero, a 1995 with 240,000 miles and original clutch. We have owned and driven many Saabs over the years, with the current fleet numbering 6 cars! ’92 cabrio, ’91 900, ’89 900S, ’86 notchback, ’84 900 4-D turbo, and the Aero. RIP ’87 900 and ’87 900S. A couple more bought, sold, and parted-out. Lots of fun, lots of laughs, lots of fellowship and camaraderie. This particular Aero is factory stock, has lots of honest use, and is an absolute blast to drive–what else to do with this beast? What do I want next? Let’s see, maybe a nice 900 SPG, or maybe a 99 turbo for vintage events, or even a Sonnet for low-riding. So many choices…

    Cheers,

    Ben

    Ben,

    Hello. Thank you very much for sharing! I was close, wow that’s pretty good! I have only 238,000 miles on our 1997 Saab 9000, so I guess I have a few more to go to catch up with you!

    I love your Aero because from the exterior it looks basically original inside and out which I happen to really appreciate.

    Keep it running and in good condition as you have! It’s a manual transmission I remember seeing, right?
