The suitcases are packed, hotel and ferry booked. Mark and I are traveling north today, and via Kiel we take the Stena Line to Gothenburg and then on to Trollhättan. We actually wanted to travel to Sweden with Paul, our project Saab.
After 18 years he was supposed to go back to his homeland, to the museum and the former factory. He was supposed to meet one of his fathers and we wanted to start our project with the logbook. But, as is the case with projects with cars that have a certain history, the plan didn't work. The station wagon was declared unfit to travel and is now in the workshop. The season is over for Paul, he won't really be able to take off until next spring. A detailed report on an unwelcome surprise will follow soon. Instead of the 9-5 station wagon, the 9-5 NG is now allowed on the track, which is really not the worst alternative.
Visit to the former Saab factory
In Trollhättan we have appointments at the Saab Museum and we have an appointment at the old Saab factory. It is the first visit since the Saab lettering can no longer be found at the main entrance, and we are more than curious about the impressions at NEVS. Our appointment planner has been very full in the last few days, exciting days are waiting. Current pictures from our visit to the home of all Saabs are in our Facebook group.
The blog is also worth a visit during our absence. We're leaving the word to Saab fans and readers this week. And because Saab is Saab and anything but ordinary, every day there is a readable article with Saab Spirit from our readers.
