I attach a very unique picture for SOW.
During 2 weeks, I travel across the US with Peter Gilbert, The Million Mile Saab Man.
We departed his home in Milwaukee to attend the Saab Owner’s Convention held in Oregon.
Still on our way back, and we have been through many adventures and sceneries.
Our trusty companion this trip, is peter’s 2001 Viggen, tuned to stage 2, and with some more goodies.
The car is one of 62 3 door red Viggens produced for the North American market.
So far, we traveled more than 5000 very hi speed miles, which turned out an average fuel consumption of 30 US MPG, and no loss of any motor oil.
The car just turned 124000 miles, with many more to come.
One place we visited on our way back is Butte in the western part of Montana.
This town is of Irish heritage, and developed on Gold, silver and mostly copper mines. It has developed from a camp, through a boomtown to a mature city emphasizing the historic preservation and environmental cleanup.
Some headframes still hang over mine shafts, in part of the history preservation.
The picture shows Peter at the driver’s seat of the Viggen in front one of a headframe.
