A logbook for our projectaab

Paul is anything but ordinary. He is an early Saab 9-5 sports car that was eventually put away and brought back into the automobile world by us. We would like to document his next months as a rolling ambassador for the blog and our Saab enthusiasm.

An instant camera provides analogue images.

Not only digital on the blog, but also quite old-fashioned analog. The 99er sports trolley is a thoroughly honest, analog car. A sustainable, Swedish long-term station wagon, if treated accordingly. Therefore a logbook had to come.

The first considerations then turned into a 3-volume logbook. I don't know if we really need that many pages. But once you've been at it, designing and printing, it's better to make provision for a little more.

Paul's story is also documented analogously

In combination with an instant camera from Fuji, the result is an exciting combination. In the future, all encounters with a bad background can be documented. For every occasion there is a page with space for a photo and enough space to leave the occasion, the participants and signatures.

In the course of the months, a unique document for our Saab project should be created. Paul and the logbooks are inextricably linked. The type plate is embossed with Paul's VIN on the cover. After the project and the raffle have been completed, the books will of course also be given to the new owner. From now on there is an opportunity to meet our 9-5 on trips and meetings. Perhaps one or the other reader will leave his mark on the logbooks. We are curious to see how our idea will develop.

  • Brilliant idea and great implementation.

    The logbook looks good naked. And once it's filled with life ...

    With unique pieces, analogue and not reproducible. “Polaroids” in the edition 1./1. Who will be more valuable afterwards, Paul or his logbook? Regardless, because they will be inseparable. Great!

  • It remains only with the 150 PS, even if more would be very pleasant.

  • The appointment for a visit to Paul's “godparents” is currently in progress. Whatever we somehow have to coordinate with our professional and private obligations. Cologne / Bonn is listed as an idea, let's see what will become of it.

  • Pure Saab enthusiasm! Please be sure to inform Paul of the exact dates of the tour (nee) in good time.
    “PS”: will it stay at 150 or is an upgrade planned?

  • Very nice idea with the analogue logbook! I would like to kidnap Paul to the Cologne / Bonn-Saab-Stammtisch, which every 1. Thursdays a month. Where and how can one apply?
