This week, a special issue of Swedish classic car magazine “Klassiker” hit the stores: a collector’s edition dedicated to Saab, called “Saab Cars Magazine”. On the front page a reference to one of the feature articles: “The Saab that doesn’t really exist”, about the Saab 9-5NG SportCombi!
Snow White in focus
So a collector’s edition about a real collector’s car! In fact, the story is centered around my own car: an arctic white 9-5NG SportCombi, nicknamed “Snow White. It was the second time that I got interviewed by this publication; the first time was almost exactly five years ago and that interview appeared in the December 2013 edition of “Vi Bilägare”. The story at the time was primarily around the struggle of getting my car road-legal in Sweden, something I had earlier written about in much detail on this blog.
Production Reports, Updates and Spare Parts
The new “Saab Cars Magazine” is now featuring essentially the same story, but received a whole new section describing not only some of the updates I have done on the car since 2013, and debunking the myth that there aren’t any spare parts for this model (they are in fact available!), but is also covering the great work Henrik Zaar and team have done around the Saab 9-5NG and 9-4X production reports.
Saab Cars Magazine and the Saab Car Museum
Besides the story about the 9-5NG SportCombi, Saab Cars Magazine is filled with a whole load of other great Saab content. Everything from secret design drawings of the Sonett, extensive coverage of the 9000 and 96, to Saab in the USA and the world’s finest Saab 92A, and more! The perfect Christmas gift for Saab fans if you ask me… The magazine is published in collaboration with the Saab Car Museum in Trollhättan and is available in bookstores in Sweden and in the Saab Museum Webshop now. More details can be found on the publisher’s website.
