Being Wednesday, it’s SOTW time once again. With apologies to those private entries that have been sent in, I’ll take another SOTW shot from Flickr. (The shots from readers are stored on another computer and I forgot to transfer one for today).
This Classic 900, fully loaded, was shot by Sharps in San Francisco. As you can see, surfboards for 20 but room for 2.
Calling all you Autonews subscribers: Edward Lapham has some commentary on there, just released, that appears to have a Saab flavour to it. Anyone like to shed some light on this in comments?? Here’s the little that we can read without being a subscriber:
Saab executives also figure a blast from the past might help rejuvenate their brand. GM’s Swedish subsidiary will unveil a concept at the Geneva auto show in March. It will be powered by a 250-hp V-6 engine, but its most interesting feature:Front-wheel drive. Does anyone remember the Saab Sonett?
Carpages are reporting that Saab have been awarded top marks for the Saab Active Head Restraint system , available in all UK Saab models, in tests by the Thatcham insurance research agency.
Announcing the results, Thatcham Crash Research Manager Matthew Avery said: “Saab has been a benchmark for designing seats to help prevent whiplash injury. Real world data from insurance claims shows that the Saab 9-3 with active head restraints has produced a 42 per cent reduction in whiplash injuries, compared to the previous model which did not have them.
“The ‘best practice’ approach from Saab was a fundamental part of the International Insurance Whiplash Prevention Group’s test procedure and it encourages all manufacturers to fit similar systems.”
