The 9000 and our journey through Östra Götaland were and are under a good star. The SAAB, the passenger and the driver arrived in Trollhättan yesterday, relaxed and good.
On the way we visited a 9000er cemetery in Tun as well as the nearby air force base and the Rastplats Viggen.
The brief consideration of making the 9000 look pretty again and sending it through the car wash was thrown overboard when it started raining last night. And, since in addition to the pilgrimage to Trollhättan and the visit to the Long Run exhibition, moose observation was and is on the program, the moose are naturally more likely to be observed in the forest and the rain has penetrated the unpaved ring road around the Hunneberg, The 9000 now has a certain rally patina, but it looks really good on it.
And finally, we also saw a moose, so the automobile mud pack was worth twice as much.
Today is the big day. The ride on the 9000 to the Stallbacka, home. However, photos will be taken tomorrow, as we hope for better weather. Continue to the SAAB Museum, which closed on Monday for the general public, as almost every museum in Sweden.
But, as mentioned earlier, the trip is under a good star. And the man behind the Long Run, Olle Granlund, has long arranged a special tour for us in advance and prepared a presentation with lots of background facts. Since the museum closed today, and we could not find the light switch, there will not be more pictures until tomorrow or Wednesday, when the museum is open regularly.
Wagon No 2 will be exhibited in a replica Talladega pit lane, featuring 1986 in use in October. In addition, the 9 themed exhibition is still on the ramp leading to the Long Run special show, originally built for the launch of the 5-9000.
On Åkerssjövägen, on the way to the museum, then the mega-bang. Life and in motion, car number 1. Think I'm stupid, but I refuse a test drive. You shouldn't overstrain your luck, a spontaneous snapshot with my 9000 and No. 1 is enough of things.
Greetings from Trollhättan, it is now back in the woods to show the elk the most beautiful car.
