Please, introduce yourself.

Hi, my name is Michael and I come from Poland. I am a production engineer by education and one of my many passions is computer graphics. On social media, I show my car poster artwork with various car brands, including SAAB.

Do you also drive a SAAB?

I have two SAABs in my collection.

I use both cars for daily driving. The cars are constantly modified by me, especially the SAAB 93 AERO. As far as I can, I repair it myself and share my experiences on my youtube channel.

What inspired you creating car posters?

I noticed that you can’t buy a nice SAAB poster on the market. There are many interesting gadgets for brand fans, e.g. BMW, Mercedes etc. I decided to provide SAAB fans with the best possible posters to decorate their rooms. I wanted every SAAB owner to have the same model of car hung on the wall that he has in his garage.

What else do you illustrate?

Currently, I focus only on creating graphics with cars. There is so much work that I don’t have time to create other graphics. Previously, I also created graphics for bicycle stickers for vintage Polish bicycles.

Tell us about your relation to SAAB?

My adventure with SAABs began in 2019, when I bought my first SAAB 93 AERO 2003′.

Previously, I was the owner of VW cars. After some time, however, I decided that I would like to drive a car that would stand out on the road and have a sporty character – the choice fell on SAAB. My dream, however, is to have a well-kept SAAB 900.

I think they’re great cars and I’m sad that the brand doesn’t exist anymore.

What was your most fun work and why?

The greatest adventure and at the same time its beginning was creating posters with my car. It’s inspiring when there’s a poster in your room with exactly your car.

Where is your favorite place for a poster?

Posters hang in different parts of my apartment. I have 4 of them in my room. Another interesting place where I hang posters is my garage.

From all of your artworks: which project do you like most of your repertoire?

I like SAAB 900 posters the most. I love these cars even though I don’t own any ‘crocodile’. For now, I’m looking at the SAAB 900 poster, but I think that in the near future there will also be a car next to the poster.

Would you like to share some future projects with the community?

Of course! I think I have created almost all SAAB car models. But I don’t have SAAB Sonett and SAAB 96 yet. These will be projects that I will make in the future.

Another project is also the production of T-shirts with graphics that I created. Currently, I have several T-shirts with my designs and I test their quality on myself. I think that knowledge about the quality of your products is the key to success and customer satisfaction.

Anything more you’d like to share?

Yes! Take care of your SAABs because you are the owners of a brand that does not exist and there will be no more of these cars. And the cars will thank you.

the authorGoran Aničić
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.
