Can your Bimmer do this??

One of the great things that Saab drivers love about their 3-door and 5-door Saabs is the car’s capacity to swallow up seemingly enormous items of cargo.

I saw this picture at SaabCentral and simply had to post it here.  What else do you do when you’re offered a free motorbike (an old Yammy 360)?  You jump in your C900 and go pick it up, darnit!

Try that in your Bimmer, Nelson Thunderpants!

Still getting 24 mpg at 80 mph to and from Guelph today with the bike in the back.

Amazing cars indeed!

  1. The wife and I got ourselves a nice new stainless steel cooker / oven. The old one worked fine but had been replaced for purely astetic reasons. At the same time a friend mentioned his oven was starting to cook rather poorly. So instead of have the city cart our old oven off to the dump we loaded it into the back of a C900 and took it to my friend’s place.

    I just love the incredulous looks I get everytime “it” actually fits in “there”.

  2. Yes, take that BMW, Volvo, Audi, etc. Ummm, except that, unfortunately, neither can my 9-5 Aero, or any 9-5 or new 9-3. Just one of the many reasons I so HATE GM for how it’s been screwing up all the things we’ve loved about “true” SAABs.
    I will admit, however, that the body tightness without a hatch does make the handling even more awesome than the original Aero, the 9000. So I guess it can be said the 9-3 SC is taking the right direction –but it’s still a wagon and I can’t STAND that look. Sorry, SC fans.

  4. Well, as Bill mentions, the new sedans don’t do the same swallowing as the older hatch backs… and BMW has made wagons for quite some time now. And, depending on the market, even AWD wagons (the e30 325iX touring was pretty cool.)

    Anyway, Love my 9000 Aero. Once got a futon frame inside the car. And once took the 9000 to move a 5-drawer dresser instead of a full-size Ford Bronco, bacause it fit in the 9000 better.

  5. I’ve carried all manner of stuff around in my 99turbo. Heaps and heaps of music equipment, gardening stuff, lounge chairs – you name it. Actually I have to load up my big Gallien Krueger bass amplifier into the Viggen this morning. It’s currently sitting in the back of the 9000 at my wife’s parking spot for her work and it’s a sitting target there so I have to go rescue it and take it home. Forgot to unload the amp last night. I swore I’d never use the Viggen as a load lugger, but will have to make an exception today.

  6. Swade,
    You hit it on the nose. I’m a Gonzaga University Alum. Go Bulldogs! Class of ’02.

    John Stockton’s alma mater (and Bing Crosby’s). John Stockton would play pick-up Basketball games in the gym during breaks (and during the strike, he would practice with the team.) Good guy.

    Great site Swade. . . appreciate it.
