Great music too. Reply Man, I really have got to have one of my 96’s back on the road by next winter–brings back fond memories;-) Reply That’s nuts. Swadey, we gotsta get a motorkhana happening soon, and learn the art of FWD drift. 😉 Reply Now THAT would be cool. I may have to run our 9000 though. No bush-bashing in the Vig. Maybe I could borrow a 99T off Bill (he’s got 3 now!!). Whaddaya reckon Bill? Reply Huh, that was really, uh, odd. Super funny, but odd. The best part was when they stopped and beat up the “guy” with hockey sticks. The sound effects were classic. The police chase at the end was totally random. Good find… how’d it cross your desk? Reply Absolutely..Fabulous ! Reply Yes really funny video from wintry Finland. I have no information where in Finland it has been shot but in the first frame it is said: “T-Ford was chosen to the car of century. They were however wrong”. And in the last frame: ” Saab 96 – Car of the century”. The music that is heard first is from very famous finnish artist: Rauli Badding Somerjoki, who sang this song in 1970. Lyrics go somewhat likes this: “He was born with gasoline in his veins and speed in his head….” It’s still a very popular classic in Finland. Another song “Police” was from another quite popular Finnish rock band. The original song might be from USA and the lyrics have been altered in a funny way. At this time we have similar weather here in Finland as seen on the video 🙂 Reply total shit! saabaudi Reply Dolph, Just go to Google Video and search for “Saab”. Saabaudi, why the long face? Just a fun bit of video, that’s all. Reply Swade: He calls himself ‘Saabaudi’ for crying out loud! That’s enough for anyone to be depressed about. About the vid: strange, but in a good way. Reply Hello swade, eggsngrits, it`s not the car or the ride of it in the video. That’s Saab as it is and this is fine. I have strongly been irritated by the sequence showing a man who is crashed by the Saab. The car-crew stops, takes sticks and dashs the hit body to pieces. Then the crew enters the Saab without any emotion and the ride goes on. Should this behaviour of the three boys be cool? Of course the body is a dummy but I don`t see any sense in this action. It is the aggressive attitude of this scene which is underlined by an explosion of another car. In my eyes here the fun stops even I am a saab-enthusiast. saabaudi Reply If you like old Saabs on ice, you really have to check this out: http://saab.ath.cx/community/tony418/2-taktare%20p%e5%20is.mpg And turn up the volume! Reply I burst out laughing in at work watching this, how embarassing. Its a good video, makes me think when I want to have a quick getaway in snow to use my saab. Reply Good driving – the plot sucks a lot better driving than top-gear jeremy clarkson i saw him smashing a brand new jag XK in some norvergian icy conditions on tele last week he was nonsense talking about ice-driving-dancing and the elegance of his driving style truth was, he just couldn’t hold the marked track admit, top-gear plot was ok and oh johnny, this link is superb http://saab.ath.cx/community/tony418/2-taktare%20p%e5%20is.mpg is there any more of this material on the web? Reply Saabaudi, no need to explain your credentials to me. We’ve corresponded enough for me to know you’re genuine. The spirit of the video is in fun, and I think even this part was done that way. The way they check the car first etc. Each to their own. Reply http://saab.ath.cx/community/tony418/2-taktare%20p%e5%20is.mpg sounds like iceskating with a chainsaw! which it, er, kinda is, actually… Reply Tjohoo! Det var det värsta jag sett. HAHA Jaaa finnarna kan dom. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
