In Trollhättan, the large Saab phylone was dismantled at the factory parking lot yesterday, and rebuilt today without the magical Saab griffin. This is reported by friends from Trollhättan, and the local TTELA provides a picture and a short article. At moments like this, I feel like I'm driving a youngtimer brand. And somehow it's a sad moment, even if the mind says "don't care".
Because the Saab-Griffin is already accompanying me all my Saab life, and coats of arms or flags are still strong symbols today. I would miss the Griffin, but it is omnipresent in our cars, and our dealers will not part with it, I hope.
After Scania has banned the use, the royal griffin will disappear around the factory and NEVS will come up with a new coat of arms. Hopefully you will have more sensitivity than with the previous design of your own website. But the question still arises as to what extent NEVS intends to maintain Saab traditions and whether what is to be created there carries the Saab spirit at all. We will see…
Anyway, have a nice weekend for all readers ... and enjoy the ingenious cars with the mystical griffin!
