This post is by Saablime guest blogger Tyler Allen Hoss, aka “Phenom”. Phenom’s recent purchase of a 1998 Saab 900 SE Turbo inspired him to write the song featured in this video. Check out the video and then read the story behind the music.

It features everything from funny details to driving statistics. It is my artistic expression of the tool that gets me from A to B everyday in a stylish way. The song itself features a
This has been my dream for the last four years. To do these videos, get on these big name sites, and to see my name on peoples playlists. My whole fanbase and team has now gotten a name: The Dreamers. Everybody living their dream in some way little or big is a dreamer. Help me live mine by supporting and sharing this video, following me on Twitter @ThatDudePhenomand by downloading this song and the discovering the rest on my free album which you can get here http://www.datpiff.com/Phenom-Murphys-Law-mixtape.433949.html.
Thank you for the time and allowing me to express how much I do truly love my Saab.
