It’s the month of hatch loving, where we celebrate the versatility and beauty of some of Saab’s best work.
Gripen’s been kind enough to scan this one and send it through. It none other than Mr Saab himself, Erik Carlsson, and somehow I get the feeling that this wasn’t anywhere near the first time he’s done this in a Saab.
How many others have done the same? I’ve got to confess that I’ve always believed that man belongs in the bed that’s customary to the period he lives in. There was a day when straw mats were great, but give me a queensize posturepedic matress and a woolen quilt any day. I’m not much of a camper.
I’m also puzzled by how a guy as tall as Carlsson could be even remotely comfortable. I know there’s plenty of room back there, but this is some tall timber we’re talking about here.
Regardless, the hatch proves itself again. BRING BACK THE HATCH!
