Well, it’s about to go on ice.
Saab Australia regularly have a marquee at Flemington racecourse during the very busy, very social and very affluent Spring Racing Carnival. It’s a time when horselovers and champagne lovers can come together. Women at the carnival frequently get dressed in their finest frocks, looking like a million dollars, and then get rollicking drunk and sit in the gutter waiting for a taxi.
There’s no other time quite like it in Melbourne.
If recently found out that this year, Saab’s marquee will be a recreation of the display that was put on at the Ice Experience, with an electric blue convertible about to undergo the big freeze.
And what’s more, a few photos of the marquee under construction have just landed in my inbox….
That’s a whole ice-bar in there and it’s currenly being preserved at some sort of wickedly low temperature.
And here’s the car that’s been volunteered for the big freeze. A 2008 Saab 9-3 Convertible in Electric Blue.
Photos of the finished facility should be forthcoming in just over a week. I’ll be attending the debut of the 2008 Saab 9-3 in Melbourne next week and then attending the races a day later, so I’ll shoot some photos of it while I’m there!
