New Member!Excited to have found this club

Postby VillageSaab » Tue Mar 08, 2011 3:43 pm

Hello everyone! My name is Chuck I am 21 years old. Though I have always been obsessed with cars since the begining of time, I have been an avid Saab lover, and owner since I have been 15 when I purchased my first Saab. A 1987 900 Convertible with 226K. I was hooked! I went on to own a 87 SPG, 92' 9000T, and a 99' 9-3 SE (RIP) though high school. I now have a 99' 9-3 five door base M/TI just purchased in Jan. My roommate owns a 98' 900SE T/C Auto in really great shape. Since moving from NH where I always seemed to have Saab friends around I have really started missing the sense of community that I have always really valued as a Saab owner. I have really want to become better at simple DIY maintance, and common small mechanical issues. Not onlywill this save money but I want to be ableto take pride in the good running condition of my Saab. I look forward to posting questions, and offering suggestions on these boards. Even though I am located near Leesburg FL, I would really like to attend some Saab gatherings ( I don't mine driving :-) aswell as maybe hooking up with a decent Saab repair shop. I have had endless troublelocally with repairs, and service here with my past 91' 900 T/C and my current OG 9-3, and NG 900. Thanks-Chuck :) :)

Hi Chuck. Welcome. Love that color on the 9-3! We have members in Longwood, New Smyrna and the Daytona area, so you won't be alone. We try to do things all over the place, so you won't always have to drive too far if you want to attend an event.

You're about halfway between Jacksonville and Melbourne, so you could take your pick between Franz Foreign Car Service, here in Jacksonville or Strictly Saab in Melbourne. Ted Miller is the Manager at Franz, and Justin Duthie owns Strictly Saab. Both are wonderful people, are members here and know Saabs well, so you are in good company with either of them.

Nice to meet you and stick around. If you'll PM me your email address, I'll put you on our mailing list which is what we use to announce events.

Hi Chuck... great intro!

We're glad to have you with us. The events that we do get announced here on the board, and as Scott said, we also try to send out announcement e-mails as well.

I think the next thing we have will be our 3rd Annual Scenic Drive, coming up real soon. Keep your eyes peeled!

Big difference in the number of Saabs you see down here as compared to NH, I bet. Down here, we have to stick together to survive!

See ya 'round.
