The Jaguar Enthusiast Purchased Saab for $500

Saab 900ng Good buy for only $ 500

Living with a Classic” is a very interesting car video channel behind which stands a great lover of cars, and especially Jaguars, both modern and classic. This guy was pointed out to us by Luke Mallory and recommended to us when he posted a new video dedicated to the Saab car.

A classic Jaguar enthusiast/mechanic has bought a 1996 Saab 900 NG and seems like he’ll make a series about fixing it up if he gets enough support. In Luke’s opinion, but also in the opinion of many other car lovers, He only has 10k subs but he is brilliant, so he wanted to support his effort.

Here we are also supporting him because he drew the attention and pointed out to his audience another car brand other than Jaguar – this is his first video about Saab cars.

So last week He purchased this fine Saab 900NG for $500. It’s inspected (mot) another 6 months and drives well. He needed a vehicle to tow their horse trailer this summer since there is a 6-month waiting list to update his driver’s license to be allowed to tow with the Range Rover. Want to see more of this odd old SAAB?

As you can see in the comments, the video provoked numerous reactions in just a few days. Some of them were happy because they saw some other brand on this channel, and some commented on the technical errors and ambiguities, the author stated in this video.

One of them commented on the engine start in Saab cars: “You state the engine is SAAB’s own design, not entirely. The original engine is based in fact on a British design for Triumph, designed by the Brit firm Ricardo Engineering. SAAB bought into the project. Yes the cylinder head is a unique SAAB design project, but the original long motor design is British, so you are keeping to the theme with this car. Likewise, the original SAAB 900 used Lucas electrics, which they later swapped to Bosch. So there is a link to your British cars“. And the author himself agreed with this statement: “Yes, I forgot that but mention at the end that’s it’s the Triumph engine.

The first video about Saab cars on the video channel dealing with Jaguars, and already has a huge number of reactions. Therefore, we expect more videos dedicated to Saab cars on this channel, especially those related to the maintenance and self-repair of Saab cars.

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.
