CabrioChallenge 2011


Last weekend Saab Cabriolet owners gathered for the annual Saab CabrioChallenge
It started of 4 years ago with the premier run near and around lake Hjälmaren and northern tip of lake Vättern. I was part of the team then but now it is organized by my buddies Fredrik and Anna. They drive a 200o Saab 9-3 Viggen Monte Carlo Yellow Convertible. The idea from the beginning was an idea to replicate what Saab France had done some years ago a dedicated touring event just with Saab Convertibles. Unfortunateley it has been hard to gather more than 20 cars in Sweden. Lets hope for more cars in the future. The participants this year seams to have had a great time in on the roads of the province of Östergötland 2 hours south of Stockholm on the eastern seaboard. Next year the event will be hosted in the southernmost province of Sweden, Skåne on the eastside in the area of Österlen 18-19th of August. Good luck!

AUX for Saabs….

One again a video interview with the SUHRT one-shoot only policy, never ever a retake….

Today on my drive to some sellers of old 99 stuff for the team efforts I also stopped by the local Stockholm dealer for the swedish bran Brodit in the US ProClip. I needed a new model specific holder for the Turbo X so I can have the iPad2 obscuring about 86% of my windscreen vision :-). The guys where really kind and one of them said hey wait I will show You something it turned out that he had been responsible at Saab for 17 years for audio stuff. He had made a great connector the makes it possible to listen to music etc from phone, mp3 or computer.

First of all this my premier New Post on SU. Thank You SU Team for the possibility to contribute as an editor:-)
SaabsUnited Historic Rally team has been enjoying some weeks of vacation. After the great driving in the Midnattssolsrallyt, all three cars made it to the finish 5th, 12th, and 22nd. But now it is time to start working in the Sundbyberg garage/factory again. Now it is time for production of a true Saab HERO-car. A Saab 99 Turbo 77-78 in White Pearl Metallic paint with matte black accents. Yes, it is a replica of the SAAB Museum vehicle, the car that Saab showed at the Frankfurt Car Saloon in 1977. A truly iconic car for Saab that showed the way forward in that time period.
