In February we almost forgot about the Saab R900 written in Upper Franconia. The story had a happy ending, because the Saab got a good new home. The current owner (unfortunately) does not come from the Saab scene, but does not want to withhold the R900 from the Saab community in the future.
A meeting with 200 Saabs in 1994 with the following Saab parade. Incredible! If you look closely, you will see some Saab fans who are still active in the scene today, almost 20 years later and aged insignificantly. Saab celebrities from Sweden were there at the time.
Saab legend Erik Carlsson is at the wheel of a Sonett, his co-driver is the very young Peter Bäckström.
At that time, Bäckström was still working in the Saab development department and is considered the father of the Saab Sensonic. We can meet both of them in Trollhättan on Saturday. Erik Carlsson wants to be at the festival, and Peter Bäckström is now the curator of the Saab Bilmuseum.
The Saab brand doesn't let go of anyone. What are 20 years now?
