SOTW Calendar – July 2006

Imagine going along to a car club meet and seeing 5 Saabs as distinct as these. You’d be pretty happy to be viewing such a diverse slice of Saab’s history all in one shot.

Now imagine going into your own garage and seeing the same 5 Saabs!!

That’s the pleasure Jeff B and his family get – everyday.

Jeff loves his Saabs and he’s passed the love down to his son Kash as well, that’s his 900 in the photo. The others are an early 1960’s Saab 96, Saab 9000 Aero, Saab 9-3 Viggen (with plenty of Abbott influnce) and one of only two Saab 9-5 Hirsches in Australia.

Not a bad stable, that.

The calendar is available in two sizes:

1024 x 768 – View image

800 x 600 – View image

If anyone requires another size, please let me know in comments or via email. I have a feeling the 800×600 size is somewhat redundant as the site is optimised for 1024×768 or larger.

Previous monthly calendars are available if you scroll through the Saab O The Week archive.

  1. And, I have a growing hatred for Saab USA for importing the 900 with everyone-gets-gray body kits rather than the body kits that coordinate with the car color. You Aussies did that the right way, as in evidence on that great-looking 900 in the pic.

  2. What a beautiful pic!

    Eggs, Jeff made the ‘aero’ panel kit himself in the early 1980’s, before Saab got around to thinking of the idea! Everyone who’s seen it comments how good it looks, and how suspicious they are of how Saab came to design such a kit……..

  3. DB: Thanks for the info!

    Jeff: Great job with that body kit. I does look fantastic.

    I thought that it was a little early (I’m guessing that car to be a 1981, 2 or 3 model) to have the skirts available when it was built.

    Again, well done! What city is this in? The buildings are definitely unique.

  4. Eggs,

    Jeff lives in my hometown, Melbourne, which I’m 99.9% sure is where this wold have been taken. Best time to visit is in Spring and try to get to a football game.
