A group of friends and car enthusiasts (Andy, Tim, Ben and Dustin) from Iowa City last week began work on an interesting Saab project. And they have finished it at the right time, just before the first snows.

They are snow-plow mounted on the car, and not just any car, but Saab 9-2x with drive to all four wheels known for its good traction on snow and mud. They Did this in maybe 8 hours of work.  The plow is actually a VW Golf MK1 Rabbit “Snow-way” plow they made new bracketry for.

Here’s what Andy Faulkner, one of the coauthors on this project: “Really well actually. Your not gonna move massive compact city plow shit to well unless you hit it a lot but it handled our drive fine. I hit it once last night after I finished up the lights too. I may take a stab at the lower drive after pearl gets home. Kids enjoyed plowing lol.”

Saabaru – It drives pretty freaking awesomely well in the snow, including the deep stuff. As long as you have fresh all seasons, you should be able to go through anything that the undercarriage can clear.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
