Saabklubben Gammalsaabens Venner (GSV), or or translated from Norwegian, “the Club of Friends of Old Saab Cars”, was founded in 1977, the focus was only on two-strokes, at that time. Gradually, the focus was expanded to all Saab cars, ie also all 95/96 and Sonett, as well as the first Saab 99. Today, after almost 45 years, the club is open to anyone with a heart and interest in Saab, no matter what model year it is.

Since its founding, the club has been constantly working and maintaining regular activities, from gatherings and conferences to exhibitions and rallies. Just at the end of May, the club held regular elections for the club’s management. Torill Sannes Hanøy re-elected as leader of Saabklubben Gammalsaabens Venner at the digital annual meeting on 26 May. Treasurer Håvard Kvernelv and parts warehouse manager Arne Uno Leirset were also re-elected. The annual report, accounts and budget were adopted without debate, and they take this as a sign that the association is run well, and that the members are satisfied.

Under the item election, the nomination committee, despite hard work, had no candidate for editor of the member magazine “9-Posten“. Outgoing editor Kjetil Urheim has helped GSV with No. 4 2020 and the first two releases in 2021. The board and the nomination committee were authorized by the annual meeting to continue working on finding an editor of “9-Posten” magazine.

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.
