Saab 900 Cabriolet. An ordinary day - Saab 1987!

A dream car from Sweden! The Saab 900 Cabriolet came onto the market at a time when convertibles were on the endangered species list. Only a few manufacturers ventured into the fabric roof car segment, and the Swedes knew how to use their chance, with some emphasis from the American Saab subsidiary. In 1987 the Saab film was createdOn ordinary day".

The plot is simple and, well, something that could be improved. It is one of the days when nothing can really work out. The average man drives around in his perfectly average car on an average rainy day. At some point he miraculously finds himself in a Saab 900 Turbo Cabriolet on the sunny Côte d'Azur. Aha! Driving a Saab makes life beautiful and everything is easier. We always knew.

The film serves pretty much every cliché in the direction of men and their cars, but the shoot is already 25 years old.

So we are not petty, but enjoy the Saab 900, as he rolls through the scene in southern France. Cars may have been more interesting than today. During a refueling something emerges in the background, which I would identify as a Lancia Delta Rally (?). I am not sure though. A rare Rally Lancia in a Saab movie and then deliberately staged. There would be no such thing today.

  • The true commercial for the Saab 900 Convertible is Sideways!

  • Great movie, that's what I imagine. One finger snap, and you're sitting in a SAAB.
    The Lancia should be a Rally 037 Stradale.

  • Yes, yes, such a rainy day in a Peugeot 504 is stupid ... maybe a Peugeot 504 convertible would have improved the mood! But the SAAB is of course at least as elegant and chic! Could it be that the Lancia is being pulled on the trailer by another SAAB 900 ??? So the scene would still fit into the SAAB clip and aptly represent the Italian auto industry for the time ...
    As always a nice clip for the after work!
    Greetings from the snowy north!
