Just wanted send out and update from

hemmings.jpgHemmings Article
Thanks to everyone who participated in the survey I sent out in early
December. With your help, Dave LaChance wrote a great article about the
Saab 99 Turbo. It is out in the February 2010 issue of Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car magazine.
The nice 6-page article starts on page 80. You can find copies at most Borders and Barnes & Noble stores.

I spent a good amount of time in December helping one of our members add his collection of 39 Saab 99 Turbos to our Registry. View the impressive collection on our site. I’ve also started a series of articles about this collection in the Saab 99 Turbo blog called the ‘Saab Addicted‘ series. More to come soon on these.

Also want to remind everyone we have FREE classifieds. This is open to anything related to Saab 99 Turbos so please feel free to spread the word. I found a website that sells Saab 99 Turbo t-shirts, so I even put that on there.

I added a Saab 99 Turbo Video section to the website. I just have a few on there for now, but feel free to send me any videos you think should be on there.

If you have a car on the Registry, please update your mileage and also please check to confirm you have correctly indicated if it is in miles or kilometers. If possible, anyone with high mileage cars, please add a photo of the odomoter like our high-mileage leader Jeff Henderson (510,000 miles) did. This helps add legitimacy to these listings.

Also wanted to remind everyone about the ‘On The Road’ page of the site. Anyone with a 99 Turbo registered on the site, just check the box ‘On the Road’ next to any images you upload that show your car ‘on the road’ and it will appear on this page.

Lastly, if anyone is interested in advertising to our members, please let me know, or pass along our site to anyone you think could benefit from advertising on

As always I welcome your suggestions to make this website better. If you want to write an article about anything related to Saab 99 Turbos – restoration, history, an experience you had with your car, etc. – just send them to me and I will post them on the site.

Thank you,

Kurt Hoffmann
Not for everone. Essential to a few.
