Video: Erik Carlsson In His Saab 96

It’s Erik Carlsson’s birthday – 84 years young on March 5!

To celebrate from afar I thought I’d show this video I shot with Erik in January 2012. I had the good fortune to go to his home in England, share some lunch at the local pub and take in some stories and memorabilia back at the house. All that thanks to my mate Mike, who you’ll see in this video.

What happened in this film was an unexpected delight. What happened straight after was one of the most enjoyable motoring moments of my life (you’ll get it towards the end of the film).

Here’s the video. What fun!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR SAAB!
