What are we currently missing in particular? It's the meetings and get-togethers within the Saab scene. Covid-19 has already canceled the 2020 season and all major events. This year it doesn't look much better right now. All plans are subject to change and hope is directed towards vaccine in sufficient quantities.
It remains to be seen whether this will be available in the next quarter. After all, there is well-founded hope and beyond mirror fencing and the tendency to build Potemkin villages, vaccine is the only thing that counts and can enable a return to a reasonably normal life.
Back to 2020. Many, but not all, meetings fell victim to the pandemic. In between there was always a community experience, in compliance with the regulations, and in a smaller circle. A special event last year was the Saab Session Slovakia. It also took place on a reduced scale, as always there is a recording of our Slovak friends.
It is excellently made and gives a dose of Saab feeling for a few minutes. Have fun watching and dreaming.
We have something to unpack
There was a lot going on here in the past week. Lizi's garage is slowly filling up and what may look unspectacular at first glance, it isn't. Because there are interesting, new contacts and insights. In Spanish collections and on hidden treasures. Before Lizi can drive this into his garage, it will require some fine-tuning. The story is definitely exciting.
Another thing that is at least as exciting is our espresso cups. We are on the home stretch and the first pattern has landed. The tension when unpacking was great, will the weeks of project work have been worth it? And as announced, the whole story needs some explanation.
Because the cup is typically Saab. Everything - but not ordinary.
What's happening on the blog in the new week?
Among other things, these things:
We unpack the package and face the judgment of the readers.
- For automotive gourmets - our Saab espresso cup
We're asking a strange question.
- Why do you still drive Saab?
We turn back the clock, look to Trollhättan. And see what the actors from back then are doing today.
- Saab Automobile from 10 years - Phoenix wants to fly
Of course there is a lot more going on. The other Swedish brand will keep us busy and the strange decisions Volvo is making for the future.
