First up is a quote from Eric Mayne’s article Saab is Supernatural.
Adds Scott Hutchings: “Great event! … Iowa next year!!!”
Next year? Saab is headed for the history books and he’s talking about the future?
And then it hit me. These people know Saab’s secret. The brand is possessed of an unholy power.
The signs have always been there. Consider that Saab is based in Sweden, which is part of Scandinavia, which is home to fairies and trolls and changelings and all things supernatural.
Thanks ThomasJ for the tip
Fairies and trolls are not the only creatures to be found in the deep forests of Sweden. There is always the moose to watch out for. They are big, they are hairy and they are rarely teetotalers.
Marcus reports hitting a moose last Sunday with his trusty classic 900, complete with mounted Toppola as well as pulling a hanger. All this while doing 80 kph. Marcus’ wife, his horse and himself all walked (trotted?) away from the accident with barely a scratch between them.
We here at SU are very happy that Marcus, his wife and their horse are all OK and we wish their future road travels will be much less eventful.
(Marcus included a photo of the deceased moose, but I have chosen not to include it here because my wife also reads this site)
1972 Saab Sonett III Coupe project car and parts on ebay. It looks a bit roughed up in some of the photos, but hey… It is a Sonett and deserves a good home!
Thanks Sapan for the tip
The local newspaper in Kristianstad reports that Swepart are content with their current deal with Saab.
For the last six-seven months, Swepart has been working on tooling for the next generation Saab
Swepart is one of the companies that initiated the process to put Saab into bankruptcy back in July. An agreement was struck and Saab have kept up the scheduled payments since. In return, Swepart have continued their work and are operating as normal.
