A Saab surrounded by some mystery


A Saab surrounded by some mystery
It’s usually winter when we think of Saabs. And then we come up with Friday Lady pictures like this. But snow and ice seem far away now, at least for us. And so this picture is perhaps more fitting. That’s a Saab 92 with its signature suicide doors, very convenient when a lady wants to step in or get out. It’s clear that the Saab 92, even before its typical shape came about had to have this particular feature, see this fascinating early design sketch by Sixten Sason.

We also wondered if some of you may be able to shed a little light on the Friday Lady picture itself. The car has to be an early model and the number 13 behind the windscreen perhaps suggests it was the entrant to a concours d’elegance? But then the setting is not very concoursesque, with a cleaning lady (?) in the background. Could it be a film set or a fashion photo shoot? Then somebody should be able to identify the lady – a model or an actress..?
