Thursday Night Quick Snippets – King Edition

I’m got about 10 minutes left on my prepaid web connection………but I’ve managed to schedule a few entries that will pop up in the coming hours, so keep checking in.
I don’t know how many of you Swedes read King Magazine. I’m guessing it must be some kind of mens mag.
Anyway, apparently they’ve listed the Saab 9-3x as one of their 10 Favourite Things in their July edition.
A skewiff scan of a very nice image:
You’ve probably seen it elsewhere already, but for the record, here’s a photo of the last Saab 9-5 sedan of the current generation.
It was built last Friday and is a RHD model destined for the UK.

And yes, I think the reason I didn’t get this when everyone else did is because I showed the 9-5 CGIs. Contact has been re-established and is cordial.
And finally, for you Viggen-o-philes, there’s a good writeup about it over at (with Video)

Beginning with the rally heroics of the insect-like 96, and continuing through the feisty 99 Turbo and 900 SPG, the carmaker certainly has a penchant for creating some thrilling cars. But those aforementioned machines all pale in comparison to the most raw and rowdy front-drive Saab ever built: the epic 9-3 Viggen.

Amen. I still miss mine everyday.
Have a good day. See you on the other side.
