Hat tip to “BillHaven”
This amazing video is especially touching since my family has been buying Saabs since the mid-late 1960s. One of these days I am going to buy a 900 Classic.
We had a ’67 93 wagon in our family when I was a kid. Would love to find a twin of it someday.
I’m a bit verklemmt right now. Very nice, that kid is a true CC’er. I wish I knew all of the details of the hunt and getting it ready.
Gorgeous car and funny how that paint color is back in vogue in a big way. Along with the polished wheels with black recessed areas.
Thanks for posting this.
Finding that car must have been quite a quest, seeing that they are in Canada – the closing credits mention a “Scandinavian” car specialist in Ottawa. Rust-free Saab 99s in that condition must be difficult to find in the US, let alone in Canada.
License plate is California…doesn’t mean it couldn’t have been taken to Canada, though it’d make things more complicated. But that would explain the lack of rust.
My Mom passed over 2 years ago, I wouldn’t know what car would have delighted her like this car did for this Mom, but….she got a big kick out of going to church in my brand new 1972 Vega Panel Express. She told me a few times about the attention that ORANGE car/truck(?)got when she and my Dad pulled into the church parking lot.
My father? His arthritis is getting so bad he shouldn’t drive, but we are finding it hard to stop him. BUT, he would be happy with any old pickup truck….with a preference for old Chevys and Dodges.
My mom would be tickled if she could ride in a Checker one more time, we had several when I was a youth.
It’s so…peaceful 🙂 Glad to be able to wachin’ it! Thank You!
Very nice! I’m thinking of having my kids watch this, they already know how much I’ve always wanted a 1967 Fiat Dino Spyder.
Aw , that’s sweet .
He’s a good kid and she must be a great mom.
I’m sure it wasn’t the point, but this touches on the fact that automobiles are more than tools and appliances, even to moms.
No, it’s not tears, I think I got something in my eye.
Very sweet. I hope the kid has a competent mechanic lined up to keep mom’s dream from becoming a nightmare.
