I am taking many of my own personal cars and forming a non profit corporation called SAAB HERITAGE CAR MUSEUM USA for the purpose of Education and Preserving these cars as a group for future generations to enjoy.

This is a gradual process and many of these cars need restoration or are parts cars, but a few are very special and some are in “as new” condition. Many of these cars will soon be featured on their own page, including pictures.

MISSION STATEMENT 

“To preserve the Saab automobiles for future generations to enjoy and inspire the Spirit of Saab through repair education, parts production and a library of Saab literature.”
