Thanks. The pictures are taken by a cheap 2-megapixel Minolta X20. We have a better camera, but I always carry this little Minolta with me in case I see something interesting along the way
I had the same camera for a while but the results weren't that good, I returned eventually for a even cheaper Nikon....

In a perfect world, every driveway would have a Saab. My neighborhood isn't pefect but we've got 4 9-3's on one street. (a lot of interesting vehicles; an S600, a CL55, an S55, XJR vert....The 9-3's probably the most fun though)

I'm going to guess that you haven't driven the S55, S660, or the CL55 before ... I would put those way ahead in the fun factor (based on what I have read as I've never driven one either ops: ).
I'm sure the 9-3 is a better all round, every day car though!

But when you get a shot like NineThreer's that shows the guy across the road with on ... it certainly is a beautiful thing!

ok, heres the silver sled (1988 900 Aero) taken at a SCCA winery tour we did down under a while back – combining two of my favourite things, Saabs and wine!

she has a few mild tweaks and has won two club concours d'elegances here!



and taken at a recent british and euro display day...



three generations of Aeros... 1985 900 aero, my 1988 900 aero and a 2001 900 aero… all three doors and all sweet cars!




enjoy

I just got back from Detroit late last night and slept in this morning. For some reason, after the 9 hour drive home, I wanted to go driving. The rented Subaru Outback wagon was uncomfortable because the seats did not fit me and there was too little elbow room. Getting back into the Saab was a relief. I took the long way to town today and remembered to bring my camera. It was cloudy and almost misty, but a great day for driving. The leaves are just beginning to change color, perhaps I can take more pictures in the next few weeks. I am really glad to get back to the mountains.

Route 18 between Covington and Paint Bank:


North (West Virginia side) of Potts Mountain, Route 311:


South (Roanoke side) of Potts Mountain, Route 311:

Thanks, but the Smoky Mountains are in Tennessee. This part of the Appalachian range is called the Blue Ridge Mountains.

You talking to me?

The base model 900 ('87 900 8v NA pictured) did not come with a spoiler.

The tail lights are not smoked, they're in a shadow.
