Before “KOTS Silkroad adventure (Banger rally)” Saab 900i it had done 340.000 km in its 19 year lifetime. Been parked up in a bush for 2 years and they bought it for 300 euro. Without ANY mechanical preperation it drove more than 10,000 km in 5 weeks from Denmark through the EU, Iran, Uzbekistan, Kazakstan, Russia, Ukraine and back home to Aarhus (Denmark) – It never missed a beat but did lose the exhaust outside Hamburg 6 hours from reaching the finish line in Aarhus, Denmark.
The Homemade roofrack (built from an old industrial eletrical cabinet – had to keep coast below 500euro) with a weight problem of some 20 kilo (It was also to be used as a hardwood terrasse when driving through Uzbekistan and Mongolia).
In total team crammed worth of a minivan haul of toys and school´ish stuff into the old swede and donated it all to a childrens orphanage in Uzbekistan. The captain and commander of the “Disco Duck” was Mr. Hvilsted and Mr. Wang – see for a bit more https://www.facebook.com/groups/128103150554066/
Well, thats another of their Saab-nuts projects... They are thinking of planning a 5 week “Denmark-Iran-Denmark Banger Rally adventure” in summer 2017 in another classic Saab 900i – anyone thinking of joining?
