Apologies if everyone else knows about this little gem already.
Just watched an excellent Swedish film (no, it's not one of those :wink: )
'A MAN CALLED OVE'
The main character Ove, is a SAAB fanatic.
During the course of the story, which covers several decades, we see everything from a 92, to a 9000, with a 99GL and a 900 along the way.
Apparently the cars were borrowed from the SAAB museum.
I highly recommend it !

Just got this from Amazon. Another Saab themed tale. I read it years ago and was recently reminded of it so I've re-bought it...

Books, films, looks like I have some catching up to do.
Just off to trawl through the local charity shops this afternoon as it happens, I do like to have something to search for ! :)
