Default Saab Dealer Toy Car

Hello folks,

I remember when I got my Saab 900 SPG in Austin Texas, that I also bought a nicely detailed plastic toy car of the 900 SPG ('twas in black) largish in size (at least 1:18 if not larger- about 12 inches long) that I kept for years.

All of a sudden I remembered it and wonder if anyone else had one also.

I am looking through my old stuff to see if I can find it.

Cheers!

Default Hiya Rob!

I do remember that they also had a pearl one, tho' I did get the dark one as it was closest to my car at the time.

Any suggestions as to whom the manufacturer was or a way of tracking down one, or both?

Cheers.

Oh yea, I had the white 900 police car, an old black 900 4 door, and a 9000 but can't remember the color.

The best part of these were how they bounced end over end all the way down the stairs.

Did we detect a twinge of maturity there?

You'd just have to somehow shrink yourself to 1/2" tall

You are quite welcome to come round and play as long as you can do a rev limiter noise and the loud bang that the old centrefugal rev limiter sounded like on the old 99/900, otherwise yer not coming round.

I see the engine in the airplane is installed backwards, too. Must be a SAAB thing.

Default Engine on the plane?

check out the engine position on this Piaggio:





BTW many thanks to Rob for posting his great photos!

I had the black one! Memories (as the song goes)!

Does anyone know where one can find one? Maybe the manufacturer?

All it says under the models is: 1984 SAAB 900 and made in finland. No mention of a factory. I did have a grey 9000 hatchback, god knows where that is.
