The 8ft Christmas Tree & The Saab Convertible

Paul, from Saab vs. Scepticism, lets us know the best way to get a Christmas Tree home.

It’s an annual tradition in our house; the collecting of the Christmas Tree. My son and I drive over to a local farm who grow the trees, we take our time choosing the best, we say hello to the resident Lamas, grab a mince pie and prepare to squeeze the (always too tall) tree into the car for our journey home.

This year, we could have made the whole thing simple, take the SportCombi, drop the rear seats and an 8ft tree would have fitted in beautifully, but it was such a nice day; fresh, crisp, a bit of sun, perfect for a run in the 900 convertible.

So, with roof down, heater on full, we triumphantly returned home with an 8ft Christmas Tree sticking proudly out of the back of the convertible. The smell of the pine needles and frost on the ground adding to the joy of a topless Winter’s drive, this may very well become a new festive Saab tradition.

  1. We managed to squeeze this years 8ft Christmas tree in the Viggen hatchback again. Not much space left anymore, I was driving, the rest of the family had to follow in the 9-5.
    Merry Christmas from Long Island!

  2. To the lady driving a 9.3 convertible up Bridge Valley Road (the steep hill under the suspension bridge) in Bristol on Saturday with roof down and a massive christmas tree out the back…

    ……. it does not matter how fast you drive, the torrential downpour we were having at the time, will get you.

  3. Very nice 900, but here in Sweden everyone seems to put their christmas trees on their roof racks and avoid getting all the needles in the car. 😉

    Merry Christmas! 🙂

  4. This photo is better than anything Saab’s ad agency did in recent years! You put a bow on the car, title it “Seasons Savings from Saab” and offer rebates or an options package at no additional cost.

  5. Hauled a 13 footer (why do they always look smaller in the woodlot?) home on my C900 Thule racks many years ago. This year it was a more sensible 8ft on the 9000 on the Thules again. Where would I be w/o those?
