War of the Noses – Saab 96

Previous nose-battles: Saab 900 classic Saab 99 Saab 9-5 It’s now time for the Saab 96, which is as far back as we’ll go in the Saab model catalogue. I’m going to do things a little different here, too. Because the Saab 96 was available...

Salacious Saab Sonett Selling (its soul) in Silver

I’ve got to admit I’m quite partial to the original Saab Sonett III colour palette. The bright citrus type colours from the early 1970′s suited the Sonett to a ‘T’ so I always have to have a good hard look when someone does something non-standard....

RM Auctions Monaco: How The Other Half Live

One car. That’s all it took. I was curious about an ad for just one car so I clicked on the page and it took me into another world. I know you can get some exotic stuff at car auctions, but this is something else....
