Hey folks!

I've recently moved to Austin, TX and have found a complete lack of Saab groups in the area.

If anyone is interested, I'd like to get together with any fellow Saab enthusiasts and perhaps even start a regional club.

Any interest?

Mike

When you coming back? Do you currently own a saab? I saw a couple for sale down here in San Antonio. Also an aero. but I fancy the linear.

Their great cars the viggen if stock would be about 230bph. I have to do a few modification to get mines up their. Their are rarely any rice burners who want to waste their gas trying to keep up the handling is amazing and in my opinion looks better than a beemer.

Yay im excited to get back and be able to drive it. It is completely stock. I don't want to do any modifications but at the same time I do like to have some extra power, but from what ive read ill start off with the steering rack brace and things along those lines.

Oh yeah I noticed the power boost from 180 to 230bph. It's fun. Gets up to 130 easy. And it glides through the freeway.

yeah gonna be fun, cant wait to go to some of the "Saab fans of texas" meets. Hoping to go to the drive in Oklahoma. Not sure where to go with the mods bit. whether to do some small here and there or wait and stock up and do a good over haul of most the bits. but I guess time and money will tell haha.

Yeah that would be awesome I have been learning more and more about saabs and also I'm a heavy equipment mechanic so I have alot of tools and my dad is an ASE master technician so I have someone to bounce ideas with.

Sounds like a plan, Im a wheeled vehicle mechanic, so I know my way around Humvees and military vehicles pretty well, but im sure the saab is a whole different beast. But ill probably invest in one of the Hayes manuals or what ever they're called and wanting to learn quite a bit about them in the process. I don't have any tools but on Fort Hood we do have a whole garage we can rent a lift and almost any tool we need for like $5 an hour. haha
