In mid-August, a British duo from the city of Blackpool embarked on a great journey for humane reasons. They converted their Saab 9-5 Wagon into a real disco machine and set off on a 2,500 miles journey to raise money for a resort hospice, in a clapped out 200,0000 mile Saab that cost just a few hundred quid.

Stuart Holt and Neil Wallace,  both from Marton, used the 2004 Saab 9-5 Aero on the Screwball Rally to raise cash for Brian House Children’s Hospice. The Screwball Rally is a five-day day European road trip through France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, and Switzerland.

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.
