SOTW – When green Saabs were really……green
May 31, 2009 in Archive
Can you remember a time when car companies used to make cars that were ‘green’ regardless of their fuel economy?
Back in the mid 1970s this was as green as a Saab got. Regardless of its color, it was possibly ‘greener’ than most other cars due to Saab’s great little four cylinder engines.
This car belongs to Phil D and it belonged to his father before that. It’s got less than 60,000 miles on the clock and has only recently been “re-kermitted”, which looks sensational. I think that’s done via a kermittment ceremony
Initial thoughts were that this might have been a show car, from Earls Court back in 1975. Phil’s recently noted that the lack of a hatch might count against it, however.
Regardless, its great to see these old-timers still on the road and looking so fresh.
