G Sanford Bogage, President

Somerville, MA

Sandy caught the Saab bug when he was stung by a bright yellow Saab 96 that used to drive around his hometown when he was young. He used to stand there and stare at it when it was parked on the street, fascinated by the shape, design and attention to detail of that car. Miraculously, at age 20, the elderly owner gave him that car, and he has been passionate about Saabs ever since. It isn’t only the way that they drive, but the entire Saab community is what keeps him hooked on Saabs. As SCNA president, there have been opportunities to connect with many Saab enthusiasts, and the shared bond of Saab “people” around the world is probably the most fascinating thing about the brand. His favorite model would have to be the classic 900, but he appreciates them all for their style, engineering and utility.
