The Saab Dok

Hey everyone. Im typing from phone, trying to be succinct. A good friend of mine, 'The Saab Dok', wants to put together a video series especially for the Saab 99, 900, and 9000. He has more knowledge on these cars than just about anyone else in the US. He was included in Saab 99 design concepts, is a Saab master mechanic, and has an extraordinarily long list of Saab Racing, and repair credits. Another fun note, he was one of the drivers in the saab test 'The Long Run', seen on youtube. Also, not to be confused with 'the Saab Dok' in Kansas city, mo. Though, THAT 'Dok' is the one apprentice he showed a lot of his secrets to. Anyway, he wants to put together a video series of detailed Saab 'how tos', secrets, and general question/answers. Think of them as "sticky's with video, plus all the secrets you never knew you wanted to know". He also wants to set up a blogspot where he can run a question answer forum. However, this info isn't something he's willing to give up for free - and I don't blame him. I've personally watched Saab dealers tow cars to his house to fix what they couldnt. Also, video production isn't cheap, and this isn't a charity. What we both want to know is if this is something the Saab community would be interested in, and would be willing to pay for, as a video reference guide for the Saab 99-900-9000. He also has part resources, and his own gigantic parts inventory you can order from through PayPal. I haven't ordered a single part from Eurosource in two years. Lol. All in all, don't complain that he wants to be compensated for knowledge - what I need to know from y'all is if a video series, including, major/minor/maintenance repairs, is something you'd pay for - as in - around the same price you'd pay for a new Haynes manual. He really wants to do this, but we're not putting in hours and hours of work for nothing...

I'd be glad to contribute toward the development of a knowledge base. Especially if it were well organized and/or easily searchable.

If you need to charge, I'd suggest a one-time fee to the knowledge base ($40ish) and an separate recurring fee to access to a forum or blog with realtime personalized response.

One time fee only, no recurring, and you must allow people to sample the stuff first before they commit to pay, so people know what they are getting for their money.

Great input, guys. Thank you. That's what we were thinking too, a one time fee base, and a monthly real-time question/answer optional subscription. Can anyone suggest a good blogspot for this type of application? Heard some are worlds better than others...
