What this blog is all about has fallen behind somewhat in the past few days. To make this clear, the team writes a fan blog and not an economic column.
And because the events in Trollhättan have long lost the charm of a Swedish Crime and are only bad entertainment, we will switch to 15 minutes Saab TV over the weekend.
Saab entertainment at its finest! A comparison test in the 170 hp class is pending. Saab 9-5 Sportcombi of the first series competes against BMW 5 Series, Audi A6, Volvo V70 and the Mercedes E-Class. The Saab video was probably shot in 1999; I'm not quite sure, and for the known reasons it is no longer comprehensible today.
The filming location is Trollhättan and the surrounding area; you can see the in-house test track. Freshly digitized, the Saab 9-5 Sportcombi comparison test is the prelude to a whole series of Saab films that we have saved from old tapes.
Some films are over an hour long, others are just short commercials. The digitization of Saab video material from the pre-digital era continues. Saab partners who have old images in the archive make us very happy when they make the films available to the blog on loan. Because the footage of the former Saab Deutschland GmbH is nowhere adequately secured or documented. In this way, we preserve Saab history and make it accessible to fans.
We publish the already digitized Saab videos from time to time - entertainment and a dose of Saab Spirit is provided. Saab is not necessarily what is currently happening in Sweden. Saab is our hobby. What is on the doorstep and what we enjoy. What drives us to write a blog, despite adverse circumstances. Have fun with the Saab 9-5 Sportcombi
