Just got it in today's mail. Cover story and feature article by Mark McCourt is on Gary Stottler's 99 EMS and 99 Turbo. Great article on a pair of low mileage Swedish iron!

Yep - been reading it for a few days now (came Saturday for me) Always a nice thing to see when you come home from a trip - pair of mint classic Saab's on the magazine cover. I love HS&E - best magazing in years!

Yes we did (visit Hemmings) and yes I will (scan the article).

Slammed with work, I'll have the scan uploaded later today if BurnSide doesn't beat me to it.

I live just a few miles from Hemmings headquarters and Mark McCourt is a good friend. He is Hemmings resident Saab nut and his daily driver is a c900. He is also the guy who did the feature on SPGs a couple years ago. Associate Editor Dave LaChance is also a SAAB guy. I'm glad we have such fine representation like those guys in such a respected publication. Can't wait to have a look at this issue.

I'm keen on getting a copy. Can someone get one for me and mail it to Australia?

Great Jim! Look forward to it!

TurboCon > Any chance I/we can see that article about the SPGs if you can scan it too? As I said it is just impossible to find it for sale down here in Oz! If you prefer not to post it publicly since you know the blokes that run it… that is ok. Always interested to read about the Saabs and I remember Hemmings News being a good read… picked up a few old copies when I passed through there with Jim on the way back from SOC one year.

Thanks guys!

Given the personal relationship Turbocon has with McCourt and LaChance, I think I'll go find or order a couple of copies to send you, Steve. Rather not violate any copyrights with Hemmings. I love that magazine, and respect their writing/magazine.

If you can get one to Bremund...?

I emailed Mark to see if there's someone at Hemmings I can hook you overseas guys up with to get copies. I'll let you know what I hear.

Excellent. I'll hold off on picking up a couple of copies until I hear something.

Here's the reply I got from Mark:

That's great news, we're really happy to hear that this issue has a global reach! I don't know if the eight pages of Saab content will be enough to make them feel it's worth the shipping costs to Australia, but we're thrilled to get the Sports & Exotic Car name out there. I would ask you to direct these interested people to the very helpful Lisa Knapp ([email protected], 800-227-4373 x 79589 or 802-447-9589). I'm including a copy of our S&EC index as relates to Saab, which is complete save for the '77 99 EMS/'78 99 Turbo and Saab executives/2010 9-5 Aero XWD stories that are in our current November 2010 issue. The SPG buyer's guide ran in December 2008, issue #40, and you'll see that we've run a number of other Saab buyer's guides and feature stories.

Thanks very much for passing along this information on our behalf, and please thank these enthusiasts for their support!
Cheers,
Mark

Sadly, if you look at the offerings in Hemmings (or any other listing), the older Saabs are hard to find. Seems like FL & CA have a corner on the market.

If they are in the eastern corridor they are priced so high when you do see one.
