Petrolicious makes some of my favourite online car films. You can imagine the anticipation, then, when I saw that this week’s film featured a Saab Sonett II.
And it’s not any old Saab Sonett II (if there is such a thing). It’s a two-stroke Saab Sonett II, which is among the rarest of Swedes.
Here’s the film….
To be honest, I was a little disappointed with this. Not with the car or the owner, of course, but with Petrolicious. They set such high standards, but I can’t help but feel they fell short with this one.
The film’s too dark, for starters. There’s not enough of that glorious two stroke sound and is it just me, or was there another Sonett II sitting in Mr Roberts’ garage?!? There’s a story, right there.
For those who haven’t heard a Saab two-stroke in full flight, try this….
Congratulations to Glenn Roberts on having his absolutely wonderful Sonett featured on Petrolicious. Your car is magnificent and your story is the envy of many a Saab fan.
I just wish Petrolicious had done a little more with it.
