There are a few short messages from the Saab world. Let's start with Trollhättan! Two Saab Jas 39 Gripen were on short notice to visit the place where it all started. They landed on the airfield Trollhättan - Vänersborg, which is located directly at the former car and aircraft factory.
The visit of the two jet fighters of the Royal Swedish Air Force was short-lived. Documented this memorable moment of "Coming Home" the local newspaper with a Video, Two modern Saab aircraft, among the best in the world, in the foreground. The background is the former Saab factory, where the lettering NEVS can now be seen.
The new Saab Inside as an exclusive print version.
The Orio Germany GmbH We enjoy the Saab Inside twice a year. It is free for members of the Saab Service Club. Already on the day of issue you have the electronic version in the mailbox. But there is also a printed version, which is distributed in a very small edition. We always get some copies of Orio and pass on the majority to readers.
In that case we would part with 3 of these collectibles. How to get it? On Friday we start here a Saab picture riddle. It will not be easy to solve, but as always, we are giving some hints. The first 3 correct answers may look forward to a recent issue of Saab Inside in their mailbox.
Saab magazines. Part II
In the current issue of classic car practice Saab two-stroke technology is put under the microscope. Hubert Hanser, recognized Saab two-stroke expert and a big fan of the brand, dissects the technology and brings Saab's history to life. Worth reading, even if you should not have a two-stroke in the garage.
Saab Caps Collector's Edition.
After closing our fan shop, Orio Germany is increasingly taking care of nice little things for the fans. There are already cups and shirts available through Saab Partner. Saab Caps also hit the market in spring. They are of high quality and embroidered with the "Saab more than a car" lettering. On the reverse side either the Ursaab or the logo with the griffin is printed.
They are definitely worthy of a collection, and they are also a good sunscreen. Ideal for the summer months and to show flag for our little brand!
IntSaab 2017. Deadline.
The IntSaab 2017 takes place from 4. to 6. August in Dinslaken. I had the slight hope that the organizers would use the access to the blog offered to them to promote the good cause. Unfortunately that was not the case, presumably because there is too much to plan and organize.
Entry deadline for participation is the 31. May, time is running out. 272 vehicles are currently on the list of participants, space is still up. Short determined brand fans can seize the opportunity.
