Being Saab aficionados, I think that all of us are out-of-the-box thinkers. People that generally look at things from a different perspective. I like to think about myself that way, anyway.
Still, I’m amazed at the ideas that some of us execute. There’s Anti’s Saab ute, for example. Beautiful. WaSaabi is certainly an all-out plunge into speed. Of course, there are also the questionable cosmetics, well-executed two-door concepts and the occasional C900 dragster. Very creative. Saabrina, the electric Saab, was my absolute favorite.
Nothing, however, could prepare me for this one-of-a-kind beast (brought to our attention by AlbertaDrew on SaabCentral).
I give you the world’s only (to my knowledge, anyway) NG900 boat!
That’s right, a boat made from the body of a presumably derelict red Saab 900 convertible. It’s currently available on eBay.
It’s not exactly made from the Saab so much as the Saab was mounted on the hull, but that’s being a little bit picky, I guess. The controls, such as they are, seem to be connected through to the cockpit in the obvious manner — the throttle/transmission lever mounted on the center console and the rudder controlled with the steering wheel. It’s also outfitted with fish-finding sonar, something every Saab should have, don’t you think?
I think that red paint was probably a poor choice for the boat given its propensity for fading, but other than that, I give this a solid “B” grade for execution. Caveat emptor!
