SOTW Calendar – August 2006

My apologies for the tardiness with this calendar entry.

Here’s one for the purists, the old timers. Well, not the real old timers, but old enough…

This month’s SOTW calendar entry is another local Tasmanian car. It’s the Saab 900 Turbo, 1988 vintage, as owned by Saab Car Club of Australia member Ben W.

The photo was taken at our recent dealership event.

There’s 2 sizes available. I’ve traditionally done a 1024 x 768 and an 800 x 600. Given that about 1% of folks are running 800 x 600 nowadays, I’ve dispensed with that size. In it’s place I’ve created a 1280 x 800 calendar, suitable for some of you widescreen folks (like myself).

  1. > Nice photo, almost as good as this one from last year

    Just imagine how good it will look after you’ve spent 8 hrs with it and a buffing pad πŸ˜‰ mwawhahahha!

    Actually, tragedy happened a few nights ago. Pulled into BP on the Brooker only to discover the rear reflector trim had snapped and one end was dragging behind the car… presumably all the way from Marketplace carpark. I have a sneaking suspicion one of the valet guys may have hit the bumper causing it to snap, but who knows, they’re pretty old. I’ve always hated the way they look and wanted to one day fill them in when the kit gets repainted… but god it looks naff right now πŸ™

    Poor old Saab.

    What about 1920×1200 widescreen? :-p

  3. Ben,

    Not a total disaster, as I think I have a spare somewhere in the workshop. At least I think I do….I had a clearout not that long back, and I either kept it on the shelf or gave it to Saabill. I reckon it’s the latter, if you care to ask him nicely for it back!

  4. when you look on the Saab 99 Australia register, has anyone else noticed that half of the list starts with “Bill”….? πŸ˜‰
