Ryan from Saabvideos.com has posted a catalog of his Saab books, which may prove useful to those of you that like collecting such things. My own collection has grown considerably over the last 12 months but there’s a number of titles there that I haven’t seen or heard much about.
Andy’s emailed me a link to a story about a guy changing the fuel filter on his Saab. Pretty funny and well done.
He goes over the instructions you’ll need that aren’t mentioned in the Haynes manual. Things like:
Brush your right arm against any rusty parts and place flecks under lower eyelid. Blinking rapidly may increase the discomfort.
Tell your wife to start supper without you.
There’s been some more fantastic insights into the German market given in comments to yesterday’s posting on the site.
This discussion is developing quite nicely and I’m beginning to form the opinon that Germany could be the litmus test for Saab’s next round of models. It’s the benchmark, like it or not.
A new UK-based website called Green Car Guide is now open for surfing. For those of you that are into such things it might be worth a look.
Interestingly, one of their main motivators seems to be more about saving money and the high price of gasoline. The motif on the front page say “For people who like cars…but don’t like the price of petrol”. I thought they were supposed to be more noble than that.
They also have a link on the site so you can follow the progress of the world’s only hybrid rally car.
Anyway, they’ve listed the 9-5 Biopower as No. 8 on their top-10 list of green cars. Can’t be all bad, then.
