When you can photograph something like this, below, you know you’re in the presence of something rare.
Whilst I was hanging out with the new Saab 9-3 on June 11 and having the time of my life, another Aussie – Brendan B – was enjoying himself in the undisturbed presence of one of Saab’s rarest vehicles – one of the six original Saab Sonett Super Sports.
I’ve not yet asked Brendan for the story about how this came to happen, but I figured the pictures were too good to leave unpublished for now. I’ll get the story from him some time soon and re-post this entry in it’s entirety. As good as the drive in the new 9-3 was, I’d have to say that Brendan probably scored a more worthwhile treat, when looked purely from a Saab fan’s point of view.
Until that story arrives, click these images to enlarge and enjoy one of Saab’s greatest creations. The full Flickr set featuring a couple more photos is here.
