Just bought my 99 turbo no4.

Hi,

Im an owner of 4 99 turbo, one 99cc turbo from 1978 (custom) and three 99 turbo saloon from 1980. All three saloons have original 5 shift gearbox and have aquamarineblue colour.
They only built 70 pieces of that colour and only in 1980. In Sweden there are approximately 20 cars left and most of them are in pretty bad shape. I guess only six cars are in running status.
The last 99 turbo I bought last week have only had one owner before me. It has never been out driving in wintertime, allways stored in varmgarage and has only made 120.000 km.

Ill try to include some photoes in this thread.

I wish I was in Sweden for the springtime....

Your cars are amazing, thanks for sharing the photos.

In the U.S. those camper shells are only available for big American pickup trucks, I really like yours, I already sleep in the back of my 900's on long trips, but that looks much more comfortable.

Best,
Drew

Very jealous. Over here we only got 99's thru 1980. All the '77s rotted out by 1981 or so, so pickins are slim for good 99's here. Very nice collection you have there

The only problem in Sweden is that the springtime and summer are very short. The convertibleperiod gets very intencive.
Ill try to include pics of my verts.

And yes, the camper is very comfortable, the bed is on the "roof" and the kitchen at the back. My kids love it and allways want to sleep in the Toppola during the warm season. In wintertime we use the Toppola as a "warmingcabin" when were out playing in the snow and gets cold.
I have Nordic stage 3 in the car so I guess its the fastest moving homevehicle in the neighburhood...

Damn! Very Very nice collection!

Got any Saab tents for the hatch backs? I hear that's another RARE accessory

Those topolla's must be tough on the ride of the Viggen/9-3 isn't it? Looks rather stressed out with weight there... I always find your picture on Google picture search when looking for those or other Saab camper combo's Good to know you found saablink!

On the contrary, the Toppola weights just over 120 kg. Thats like having two young women in the backseat = no problem.
The reason why its ride so low is the lower suspentions and shockabsorbers.
So the Toppola has nothing to do with the low ride.

Heres two pics of the car before and after the lowering, and a couple of more pics....

Im very glad that you like my cars. I found myself being a collector on older days...

Those pics are great!

I'm pretty sure I saw your car in person at the Saab Festival in 2007. It was parked outside of the Saab Museum.

Yapp, right outside the entre.
I tend to visit the SAAB-festivals everytime and Im going to visit the festival even this year.
But this year I think ill bring the blue 99 turbo instead of a vert.
Perhaps well see each other there?
