Saab 99 link love

The month of Saab 99 love is almost at an end, so I thought it might be a good thing to show a spots on the intertubes where you get some more info on one of the most quintessential Saab models ever – the 99.

The 99 dynasty saw Saab’s first 4-door sedan variant, the birth of the combi coupe hatch and the introduction of the turbo. Not a bad history, that.

So, the links…

The Saab 99 Tips page is run by Karl the Mechanic, though it hasn’t been updated in some time – the “what’s new” page was last updated in 2002! That doesn’t stop this being one of the most comprehensive 99 maintenance sites out there. There’s tips for all facets of the 99: exterior, interior, suspension and engine – with heaps of subsections under those headings

Saab 99 Klubben is a Swedish page and judging by the title I’d say it’s a Swedish Saab 99 Club (well, duh). You’ll have find your own way around there based on your knowledge of the language, but this gallery’s quite good.

There’s also this bumblebee 99.

The most complete book I’ve read on the development of the Saab 99 and 900 is STILL this book by Lance Cole. Funnily enough, it’s called Saab 99 and 900: The Complete Story.

  1. Sometimes I find that i like the 99 look slightly more than the c900… The cover on Lance Cole’s book is great!

  2. Lance Cole’s book is the most definitive on either car for a simple reason: you can’t have a truly complete story of the 99 without the 900, and you can’t have a truly complete story of the 900 without the 99.
