Yes, the very old times. When the Swedes suddenly had a second car brand besides Volvo with Saab. The history and stories from Saab's early days are remarkable. There was improvisation and people who had previously only built planes tried to put a car on its wheels. They did it properly. As a result, there were fine cars from Trollhättan for decades.
Remembering the two-stroke era
Unfortunately, the memory of the origins fades more and more. There are hardly any contemporary witnesses among us, the storytellers who keep the memory alive are missing. Klassiker magazine has released a collector's edition on the two-stroke era and the roots of Saab. The best articles from the archive, prepared with high quality as always.
The two-stroke culture is awakened to new life on 100 pages and exciting reports await. The editorial team drives a Saab 92A in its original condition. Built in 1950, never restored. Very exciting. Saab's first attempts at walking in the USA. How was that back then and how did the Swedes prevail in North America? The start of a success story.
But you also stay in the more recent past. The Saab Museum and the rescue in 2012 is also an issue. Money from the Wallenberg Foundation, funds from the public purse. Then another letter from Klassiker Magazin. The booklet tells how the museum was saved from destruction back then. As usual, the magazine presents all articles with high-quality pictures. They alone are worth buying.
Disadvantage: The magazine does not appear in German or English. The publisher publishes in Saab's mother tongue. If you don't speak the Swedish language, you can use a dictionary to help you expand your language horizons with Saab and a lot of fun.
The Special edition at the beginning of Saab and the exciting two-stroke era costs 149,00 Swedish kronor, with shipping to Germany you paid around 20,00 €. Not too much, because in addition to Saab stories and beautiful pictures, you get the basis for a basic course in Swedish for free.
And that, just between us, we always wanted to tackle.
