Saab Fans to Collect Online Donations to Buy Last Saab Ever Produced

The death of Saab has greatly saddened the automotive world. Saab, the choice of architects everywhere, made quirky and typically Swedish cars on drastically redesigned GM platforms, to great effect. Even 30-odd-years ago, their cars were among the most advanced and safest in the world. Their philosophy of making safe cars with a dash of sportiness and Swedish simplicity had a constant, but relatively small dedicated fan-base all over the world.

The members of SaabsUnited have decided to chip in as much as they can and buy the last Saab ever to be produced. It a 9-3 Griffin which is scheduled to roll off the production line at the end of the month. Their plan is to raise the necessary cash, through donations, to buy and then permanently place the car in the Saab Cars Museum, where it belongs.

The matter of buying the car is a tad complicated as the vehicle requires a legal guardian (an owner) as the car cannot legally belong to the museum. A way has been devised in which the museum cannot move the car without the owner’s consent and the owner cannot move the car without the museum’s consent.

It is a nice initiative and we wish them good luck in raising the necessary money to make it happen.
