I just sold my beloved SAAB 93 TDi Vector Convertible for the Jimny! I'm still a moderator on a SAAB Tech Talk forum and they don't want me to leave because they love the on-going updates on the MG front!
The SAAB was a fabulous car; I bought it about 7 years ago when SAAB was lurching from one unknown future to another, and I was gutted that GM finally pulled the plug them as if saying "If we cant have SAAB nobody else will either". I swear I will never buy another GM car because of what they did to SAAB.
On a different note, I have had some great times in Norway with the RAF operating Puma helicopters out of Voss (I learned to ski in Voss) , Bergen, Trondheim, Bardufoss, Tromso and many other places. We were always there during Jan Feb and March every year, but I'd love to see Norway in the summer months - but its expensive there for us Brits :( . I also remember being stuck there in a place called Hell!
The last time I was in Norway must have been when we rescued a broken HS125 jet from Bergen that had a collapsed nose undercarriage leg back in 2010.

Saab is gone, and volvo is chinese :) times change for sure. During my youth I spent some in my friends '74 Saab 95. fun fact on that car is that you can never lean out of the side window and get to see the front wheel, no matter how hard you try..
I live in on the west coast between Bergen and Trondheim near Ålesund/Geiranger. It is expensive for us living here as well :)

2005 Jimny M16A VVT, 235 BFG MT, 2" Trailmaster, ARB rear lck, 17%/87% high/low gears.

I also have a 1990 Jaguar XJS convertible now, its a much better ride than the Jimny but somewhat less economical.

Some Suzukis and a bunch of motorcycles.

While I was at the Restoration Show in Birmingham today, I had to be dragged away from the stand with some fabulous old 1947 SAABs :(

Although I have my old MG's I just love these old SAABs!
