Old Saab racing pics

Here’s one I completely overlooked on my RSS feeds this morning…..

David W has shot through some links featured in a post on Jalopnik today. The post was concerned with racing in Angola from the 1950s through to the 1970s – not something I would have thought Saab would get a mention in.

I was wrong though.

There’s a few images featuring what looks to be an early model Saab 96 getting around the course, usually with a Mini in tow.

Here’s one, other Saab specific images can be found here and here. The entire Flickr set can be found here.

  1. On one image there are two white classic Saabs (Sport or MC, judging by the bolt pattern).

    Wouldn´t it be interesting to know whatever happened to those cars – I mean, genuine bullnose Sports with quite an exotic racing history ?

    Amazing.
