It’s August where I live and if you’re reading this there’s a very good chance it’s approaching August where you are, too.
And that means that the month of classic 900 loving has begun!!
The months of Saab loving are meant to be an opportunity for owners to share their stories about the model and tell the wider world why their Saab is so freaking brilliant. Previously, there’s been a month of Saab 9-5 loving (unofficial), a month of 900/9-3 loving, a month of Saab 99 loving and a month of modified Saab loving.
Now it’s time for that eternal model in Saab’s lineup – the classic Saab 900.
When I was growing up, all my mates had old Holdens or Fords. It was like a rite of passage for a young Aussie bloke. It’s probably similar with Saabista as well. If you haven’t driven or owned a classic 900 yet, you should give some consideration to spending some time in one. Saab built it’s entire modern-day existence on this car and it’s probably the most instantly recognisable Saab there is.
So send your photos and stories through to me at swade99-at-dodo.com.au (you know the deal, change the ‘-at-‘ to an @).
Allow me to kick off proceedings with a great shot I found on my Flickr feed. This was taken by that French purveyor of all things vintage Saab – Golfhunter. His full Flickr account, complete with heaps of Saab pics, is here.
A great shot of a great car. Don’t you just want to jump in and head for those hills?
