I've been stripping a 1980 5-door recently of it's goodies. Came across this bag in the hatch area, it had the jack inside. Wondering if it's a genuine SAAB bag that came with the car or just something the owner threw in there to keep things tidy? The car in question is in Colorado at the Pull a Part on 33rd and Peoria if anyone local wants to check it out. Last time I was there it still had 4 good soccer ball wheels.

Can't imagine that would be original don't think Saab ever endorsed army style patterning

Thanks for the replies

Great to know that it's a SAAB part. It's in rough condition but the fact that it's still around is pretty amazing. It is in fact a convertible relay holding the bag open for inspection, good call.

Perhaps it was for a 99. Had lots of new 900s since they were launched in '78. Never saw a bag like that. And in the bag the jack would not fit in the purpose made clip in the floor of the trunk to hold the jack. Perhaps this should be posted in the 99 forum. :cheesy:

Jack Bag

The 99s and 900s through 1980 had a jack bag. There were no clips built into the floor until MY 1981. They used whatever material was available. But all bags were the same as this one.

That material looks like the stuff Army wet weather gear is made of... Weird. They probably "procured" it by the metric ton when the Swedish Army bought something better. Thank God they didn't decide to use it for upholstery or vert top material... That would be the only thing less appealing than gingham. :eek:

So, the implication is.......that you'd prefer the bag to be in Gingham......
Could be a whole new trend in Saab accessories....:lol::lol:

Ah anjum... Is it YOU who "upholstered" your door panels in that crazy print?... Do you have some kind of scanner that alerts you whenever the word is used in the forum, so you can find out who's using the term in vain??? I only ask because you always have something to say in Gingham's defense... Well at least you didn't repost the pictures!

Thank goodness someone invented Plaid, so Gingham wouldn't be lonely.;ol;

Wonder why the Americans call tartan "plaid"? When to the Scots, who invented it, "plaid" is a piece of tartan cloth worn over the shoulder with the kilt. Not that I'm Scottish you understand. :lol:

Those two can sit around and talk about the good old days with their good friends paisley and houndstooth. Which reminds me of an old Jeep buddy who redid his Grand Wagoneer's headliner in houndstooth...talk about an eplieptic siezure waiting to be triggered...

:lol:

Yeah... Leave it to Chrysler of the 40s to set taste trends. Very cosmopolitan indeed!

Chicks do look hot in plaid... er... um, tartan though!

Perhaps my education is incomplete. I was of the understanding that plaid, as a pattern had little relation to Tartans, which in the bigger picture of things indicated your clan or affiliation. Most plaids I am familiar with are either work shirts (flannel) or patterns by the Coleman manufacturing company in thier metal "Scotty" coolers and thermoses, along with the Hudson Bay Trading CO.
