Saab Festival

Most of you will know already that the Saab Festival was held in Trollhattan just a month ago (June 16-19 2005). There’s been a few photo albums floating around. The link above is to the official site and is worthy of a few minutes of your time.

The festival is held every 2 years and I’ll be hoping for a lottery win or some other type of windfall to get me there for 2007, the 60th anniversary of the first SAABs rolling off the assembly line.

This year’s festival looked fantastic from all the pics I’ve seen and a few from the linked site are shown below:

Now hold on a minute, didn’t they only make six of these?

If anyone was there and knows what these are, please drop a line or two in comments. I’d love hear the story behind them.

By the way, if you’re in the mood for a quick Saab tutorial, why not check out Saab Automobile over at Wikipedia. You can even add to the entry if you’ve got some additional information of merit. I’m going to look into what I can add on the 9-6x.
