Hi there

No problem
The reason that we gave up the car that was called Simon was Ihad spent over £3,000 on get brand new Aero suspension and also the 9-5 went to a place called Vulcan Works to get welding done and also got the car under sealed.My dad also had work done there as well so this year Iwas hoping not to spend any more money on the car.
My wife in a very nervous passenger and on the Perth roundabout the car broke down and anyone that knows me I don’t us a mobile phone and neither does my wife.
The problem was the throttle body had stop working so cruise control didn’t work and when I was coming to a stop I lost the power steering so we both got a fright.I did manage to drive car back to Glasgow and Schoneville Saab fixed the next day.
As I said my wife had very serious accident at that very same round about so see did not feel save in the 9-5 anymore.
If it was up to me I would have loved to keep the car because I never got round to finishing it off and dad so much fun over the year I had the car.
Funny Thing someone told me that it was going on sale on eBay so my dad said let’s just buy it back but the thing was I don’t have a garage or drive way and my dad is the same.
As I said I really do wish you all the best with the Hirsch Wagon and me and my are looking forward to meeting you at the next Uksaabs meet.

From David Jnr and David Snr

Hi David, thanks for your reply. Very clear reason. If you don't feel confident with your car that's a problem.

By the way you have got a PM.
