Last Saturday was the reopening of the Saab Museum in Trollhättan. Saab friends, who were live on site, report an emotional amosphere. Erik Carlsson gave a moving speech, followed by a fanfare solo and somewhere in the hall a Saab two-stroke started. The signal, the museum, our museum was saved!
It's a strange feeling when you see a Saab 9-5 sports suit in the museum. Perhaps he is the only surviving bearer of Saab. Because allegedly all other station wagons of the pre-series have been sent to the scrapping, a fact that is still not clarified beyond doubt. The sports car is a car, with which we toured a few months ago full of anticipation through Germany and many of us had already ordered.
In addition to the many famous classics from Saab history, there are also many current models in the exhibition hall. Even the Saab 9-4 x, another hopefuls that would surely become a hit, has meanwhile found its place in the museum. Also the last 9-5 sports car of the first series and a Saab Turbo X.
So we accidentally drive through the area with rare automotive cultural assets. A status that we would very much like to have waived. The museum pictures from Trollhättan come from Götz and Oliver from Hamburg, who were not only traveling in Sweden because of the opening. One of the two brought a “crazy project” to Germany.
The story with pictures follows at a later date. First of all thanks for the pictures and the capture of the impressions on site!
