Saab in Boston Harbor 1957

Saab expands to North America. Boston 1957!

200 Saab R900 are on the road on the Nürburgring

In February we wrote about the almost forgotten Saab 900R in Upper Franconia. The story came to a happy end because the Saab got a good new home. The current owner (unfortunately) does not come from the Saab scene, but does not want to deprive the 900R of the Saab community in the future.
