Richard’s Out of Africa finding

I know she was a Dane but 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.

What a find!


Don’t you just love this sort of story?
I do!


Me to!


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.
