Richard’s Out of Africa finding

I know she was a Dane but ..it seemed fitting. There I was driving down a dusty road in the middle of Kampala’s soul-destroying traffic and there it was:

As the owner of a 91′ Plantana Grey SPG convertible, my heart stopped. The car was more Mad Max than Springtime in Sweden but I admired the owners ingenuity in dealing with the local conditions and ..lack of parts supply. The car was a little worse for wear ..and oddly an automatic. Some ex-pat Saab-lover no doubt shipped it in at some point and the enthusiastic new owner has done his best to uphold it’s dignity.

I still prefer mine

Thank you Richard for the great photos.

Robin, given NEVS’ history of not releasing any information prematurely, publishing these photos of the next generation convert in spy guise being road tested at a remote location is quite a scoop. It appears that they have managed to capture the old SAAB spirit in the design which should make many of the faithful happy.
