My dear car that saved me” – this is how Callum Cask Thomson starts his story who experienced an awkward situation on the road. After a relentless incident, Saab will come home and serve its life as a reminder of how he said goodbye to evil fate.

According to the driver himself, There was no drinking, hooning or whatever involved. The driver lost control of the vehicle at one point and have been told by a witness that he may have been swerving to avoid oncoming traffic. All of this is irrelevant. The old Saab 900 saved him and he is so grateful to it, the wonderful people at NSW AmbulanceNSW SES Murwillumbah UnitUki Rural Fire BrigadeFire & Rescue NSW Station 391 Murwillumbah and everyone else who helped him that day.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
