Last weekend, a padded envelope landed on my desk. Saab stamp on it, sender Detlef Zielke. Letters and packages with Saab senders are always like Christmas and Easter in one day. Especially if they come as a surprise and you have no idea about the content.
If you are positively infected with Saab, you can understand how I feel then. The surprise: Detlev Zielke, Saab partner from Lübeck and an integral part of the Saab world, has written a book. On the subject of Saab, of course. It's about an old 96 V4 called Knuth. It's in a junkyard and would actually have reached the end of the street.
If it were a “normal” car.
But he's a Saab and as such he gets to know Tim, who comes by the junkyard. Actually to dismantle part of the 96. But then Knuth tells his life story and a friendship develops ...
Of course, I had to read the book right away. It's humorous auto literature, 126 pages full of love for Saab, and at the same time a pan through history. If you enjoy the brand and reading, and don't expect heavy fare, you've come to the right place. “Knuth - Eine Auto Biographie” is available for a very fair € 4,90 + € 1.45 shipping costs Car dealership Zielke in Lubeck.
For the weekend two interesting Saab dates to mark:

Of course there is a special motto. Everything will revolve around camping. The focus is a rare Saabo caravan, the towing vehicle should also be very exciting. We accompany the Saab fans in their work and the great commitment to the brand again.
