Q: What's a VSAAB?
A: "V" for vintage, "SAAB" for, well... SAAB! The word Vintage in this case is used as an adjective meaning venerable, or classic. Without getting into the many possible definitions for the word "classic", suffice it to say that many enthusiasts of early SAAB automobiles would agree that these machines could be described as both venerable and classic.
Q: What's with the
capitalization? I thought Saab stopped capitalizing the name of their company years
A: They did. I guess that's the point. VSAAB deals exclusively with vehicles that were manufactured when the acronym was still an acronym.
Q: Who's at the wheel?
A: Chris Rogers (that's me) is the founder and webmaster of VSAAB and the moderator of The Vintage SAAB Mailing List. He also runs the San Diego SAAB Owner's Group and is the webmaster for the SDSOG site. At last count he had six SAABs in various conditions at his home and in his shop in San Diego: two Sonetts, a 96, a 95, an SPG and a 900T.
Q: What's all this about a VSAAB Membership Program?
A: The idea is that some of us are more enthusiastic about our SAABing than others. For us, there could never be enough SAAB stuff. A paid membership would provide the funds needed to expand the VSAAB offerings for those who really wanted it. Trouble is, funds are only half of the problem. The other half (time) has been my enemy for over a year now. I sincerely hope that I can soon rearrange my time in order to have more to spend on developing and maintaining a VSAAB membership program. When I can, I will -- and you'll hear about it if you subscribe to The Vintage SAAB Mailing List.

List subscribers and others who benefit from the information and ads on the site send donations which are used solely to cover the costs of the list software and the hosting of the website.
