I had one of those great Saab moments this afternoon on my drive home from work. I’m cruising along the road toward the bridge and see a nice looking 900 in my mirrors coming up in the lane to the right of me.
I slow down and let the car get to my side and am amazed to see a 1984 Lux edition 4-door 900 in almost perfect condition. Haven’t seen one of those in ages! Two-tone silver and grey just like the shot below, but with manhole wheels instead of minilites:
So there I am, cruising in my Viggen on a beautiful afternoon with The Badloves playing Green Limousine on the CD player, a beautiful classic 900 in the lane next to me, the working day over and a short trip to my new house. Does life get any better?
Yeah, it does. Shortly after that we hit the highway and I got to plant the right foot. Ah, sweet turbo.
Please feel free to leave your great Saab moments in comments. Take as much time and space as you like.
(and by the way, whenever you’re looking for that hard-to-identify 900, do what I did and go to Paul’s Classic 900 Special Editions page. Bloody magnificent)
