Time to remind everyone about the Bilträff och Våffelcafe at Krogsereds Bygdegård on the 15 July from 18:00-20:00.
Last year we had 9 Saabs present and I think it is safe to say everyone had a wonderful time. Unfortunately we didn’t win any prizes but we can try again in force this year.

Big thanks to all for turning up today, was impressed with the number considering it is so early in the year. 4 older cars, 93, 2×96, 99, and a couple of new Saab’s made it out today. Not the warmest weather to stand in the carpart and talk about the cars so we got inside rather quickly and I think everyone enjoyed the warmth, coffee and…[Läs mer]
That was certainly a good weekend at the racetrack and the 1000cc Cupen the most entertaining of all the race, well done to all.
Haven’t had a chance to go through all the photos but it was fun seeing the different cars in the 1000cc Cupen.
Seems like Anders Jensen (No 34) had a bit of an arguement with someone in the second heat.
I think it is safe to say that everyone who took part in the rally enjoyed it. There were 7 Saab’s and 5 VW’s competing so this year the club prize went to Saab Hallandia. Last year it went to Halmstads Luftkhuler.
There was enough space at the start area in Sik, it was good to see a mixture of Saab’s and VW’s parked…[Läs mer]
Another successful meeting. Thankfully this year the weather held out till after I got home, so it was sunshine and a little breezy.
10 Saabs turned up and I think it is safe to say we all had a good time. I held a small ”Peoples Choice Award” but not for the ”Best Car” but rather ”Which car deserves a new…[Läs mer]
I got what I was hoping for, more Saab’s. Out of 19 veteran cars that turned up, 9 were Saab’s.
New to me was a really nice 1978 Saab 900, hope to see that around at Saab Hallandia meetings in the future. A nice 93, and a number of 96’s covering different years and including 2 Saab Sports from different years as well. Nearly a perfect turn out…[Läs mer]
I think a big ”thank you” to Mats-Ove for arranging the rally and leading the pack through the back roads. Some amazing stretches of road. We met up at Hallandsås Motel for the start, this is some of the first cars to turn up.
In total there were 11 cars, some new ones we haven’t seen before and some of the…[Läs mer]
One of the more diverse meetings we have had in Saab Hallandia, 11 Saab’s and an Opel. Big thanks to all who attended, hoping that we will have such a good turn out at the next meeting in June. We found a good place to park and slowly but surely cars started arriving.
There was a magic 1987 900 convertible,…[Läs mer]
I have been working more on the Average Speed Tables and have managed to invest in a good printer and spiral binding equipment, only way to keep the production costs down.
Just an update as I have moved the PDF files to another place on my website and hate leaving dead links around incase people are looking for things. If you go to my website, http://www.car-id.biz, and click on the menu item Project Drawings, you will find all the service ramp drawings there. I have also added two new car ramp drawings, Sonett and…[Läs mer]
John: This is a direct link to the product, 487,- plus postage.
Bengt: Nice photographs, must have been fun walking around looking at the cars and speaking to the different people. One thing I noticed, some of the cars had what looks like a steel disc on the center of the wheel, some on the front wheels, others on the back, any idea what these were for.
Thanks for the info. I managed to get the car out of the garage on Saturday to drive it around to try and find out where the noise was coming from. Typically, no clunking noise. So I drove the car to a meeting and no noises there or back. I drove in circles with full lock, both forwards and backwards, still nothing.
All I can think of is that…[Läs mer]
Haven’t been able to get the car out for a drive yet but on Sunday I managed to get the car up on the lift and had a good look around and behind both front wheels. Nothing seems out of place and nothing is loose. Tried rotating the wheels to hear if there were any strange noises, but nothing, suppose it need weight on it to put pressure on the…[Läs mer]
Andreas: Took some photos, hopefully they will help. The first one is the one that goes into the glove box.
The following one is fitted under the dash, not sure if this is the original or not.
This is from my older car, unfortunately I can’t get to it to photograph it from the side but if memory serves me right this is just a plate hanging…[Läs mer]
Bengt/Janne: Thanks for the input. Tomorrow I will try get the time to remove the wheels and have a good look around and see what condition the boots are in and also make sure that the calipers are tight. Hopefully it is something simple like a loose caliper.
Dicst, Christian: Thanks. Takes a bit of time to sort things out, but it is fun. I have done a little update to both books, there is now an example page at the front explaining how the tables are used in one of the rallies. Once I have finalized the layout and contents then I will translate it all to Swedish.
