She’s been part of our family for the past 32 years, and I’ve loved her since the day I first set eyes on her in the Saab showroom when I was a kid. From when I was 21 I was allowed to drive her too, and fell even deeper in love with her.

Well my parents have decided that now she is to become fully and legally mine so I get to love her forever.

Transport is arranged and she’s coming back to the UK again on Wednesday. My boyfriend and I couldn’t be more excited for our new baby.

The Old Girl is one of the family and has been since new, she originally joined our family in 1984. She travelled by boat from Sweden to Oman, and then by plane from Oman to England, then to France. She’s coming back from France as my parents have said that I can love her for the rest of our lives now. She’s very very special to us, I still remember seeing her in the showroom and the day she came home, it feels kind of like I’m getting to adopt my little sister and we’re both really excited.

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.
