I’m not sure A-pillar thickness means that much regarding strength. This was a long time ago, but I cut up a 73 Volvo and cut the A-pillars with a hack saw. Took just very few seconds, very thin sheet metal, not more than 20 ga. I cut up a Saab 99 the same way, and my arm got very tired, and I took a few breaks before getting through the very…[Read more]
I think I made a dumb comment above. If what Trued says is true, could KJJ have figured out this is the end?

My ideas are usually nonsense, but would it make sense for Volvo do do just as you suggest and use the Saab brand for a sportier, but lower priced line of cars based on Volvo’s good new platform? Seems like Volvo wants to go head-to-head with BMW/Mercedes and this might let them use their resources for higher volume vehicles without tainting the…[Read more]

Yes, I’ve read that URSAAB was fitted with a DKW engine, but only URSAAB. Thanks for the info.
And, oh how I wish I could get locked in the SAAB museum.
