Saab 93 oldtimer video

Etienne and Golfhunter have tracked down a fantastic video featuring the classic Saab 93 from the 1950s and early 1960s.
The video is in German (I think) but don’t let that put you off. The pictures speak more than 1,000 words. Apparently there might be an overdub in English some time in the future.
If you’re not in to oldtimer Saabs at all, then you should be. The company’s identity is built on them. If you’re still reluctant, then there’s two reasons why you should click through and give 5 minutes of your life to this video:
1) To see how an old-time Saab window wound down. I remember being amazed when I first saw this on a Saab 95.
2) To hear the Saab advertising jingle near the end. Priceless!

The Saab 93 is a beautiful car in it’s own right. I especially love the red piping they used to use on the vehicle. Uber-classy. They could bring that piping back today and I’d be a happy camper.
Watch the video now over at Saabhuy. I guarantee you’ll be singing the jingle for the rest of the day
Get a Saab in your life and then you’re really living…..

Saab Vs Poster Advertising

I first posted these on the Trollhattan Saab site back in June 2005. I’ve always loved these posters and when I first loaded them on the site I included the text for around eight of them. Unfortunately I tired of writing them all out.

Thankfully, Jeff I offered to finish the job.

Enjoy these brilliant images, now complete with text thanks to Jeff’s magnificent efforts.

It’s not quite a complete set, but it’s close….

Saab vs WYSIWYG
What you see is what you get. A rather unimaginative way of looking at the world. Take the Saab 9-5 wagon. On the surface, a cargo carrier. But look under the hood. A turbocharged engine that generates enourmous amounts of torque. The car’s versatility is evident: Cargotracks for securing loads, an optional sliding floor to make loading easier. But what about the torsionally rigid body construction that gives the car handling characteristics similar to a sports sedan? Can you see that?

Plenty more after the jump…..
