“The Color Tour” on October 06.10.2019th, XNUMX. Great ideas, super prepared, started with flying colors.
The Chemnitz-based creative department of SAAB Freunde Sachsen in the person of Thilo and Alex shook an exciting autumn trip "out of the left SAAB fender," which inspired the about 65 rolling Sweden-Mobil-Tourer.
The meeting point was the delivery zone of the well-known Swedish shelf board supplier with the logo in the Swedish national colors blue and yellow. First a large cardboard wonder box with a hole was delivered. The drivers could put their arm in and a ticket provided information as to whether they could sit behind the right-hand steering wheel of the Saab 9-3 I Anniversary 2.0 T.
7 boxes were placed, which were placed so that a parking bay was created. Now it was mutually to the exciting task, in exactly 40 seconds to control the right-hand drive with left hand switching to 2 obstacles and park backwards without collision.
Sovereign won Daniel in 40,17 seconds ahead of runner-up Christoph and the bronze prize went to Florian.
The then beginning exit through the mountain ranges of the Erzgebirge had enough curves in the program, which showed us glittering-beaming Saab Mobile in the fragmented October sun several times. There were countless vertical meters to overcome, which challenged the quality of the braking units respectable.
In order for the 28 SAAB missiles to reach all destinations, Thilo piloted the pre-voyage gear and Alex was able to bring the backs to the peloton with great cleverness. The first destination was Schwarzenberg with a stop at Schwarzwasser.
Then under the motto: "From Black to White" - there was an ingenious route via Sosa - Blauenthal - Wolfsgrün to Schneeberg and this through colorful avenues.
Even if the October temperatures in Schneeberg were already quite low, we were lucky not to be enveloped in "white splendor". So the picnic at the felt pond was still fitting. Here the 14 Saab fronts of the 900, 9000, 9-3 I-II-II, 9-5 I, 9-5 NG and the opposing 14 brand brothers shone “face to face”. The drivers and the escorts were able to sit optimally on a meadow between the SAABs for a picnic. What a successful move, what a beautiful sight. The support from the team was very pleasant here Fundora adventure playground.
Not enough of the special effects: The caravan rolled over Culitzsch via 2,38 m wide commercial roads.
Until 1989 stood in a hall black and white spotted four-legged, today there are four-wheeled, two- and multi-wheeled vehicles. In 14-year-old metamorphosis there was a cowshed Oldtimer Museum.
After fifteen minutes of exciting introduction by Mr. Schwalbe Schwuppdiwupp was one
in the middle of childhood memories when looking at the nostalgic toy from the 60-like
and 70-like. From the DDR motorboat to tractors, army and fire engines to the Tatran scooter - rarities in perfect condition. The "Minol-Pirol" greeted from the special exhibition to the
70-year Minol anniversary.
Without refueling the SAAB collection, we started the journey home deeply impressed.
Wait ... a cup of coffee or chocolate was also available for some participants in the museum café.
Thanks and appreciation to the resourceful organizers Alex, Thilo and Florian for the versatile autumn rounds.
We look forward to the next exit of SAAB Freunde Sachsen.
