Here is another appeal to find a stolen Saab car.In the last couple of years, we have seen a higher frequency of thefts of Saab cars, but these are mostly older Saab cars, which did not have various anti-theft systems installed.This time, it’s about the car we wrote about on this blog – an exceptional example of the Saab 900 Carlsson.

Allan Holmes contacted us with an appeal on behalf of his friend who owns this beautiful and rare Saab model – 1990 c900 SAAB Carlsson Replica. This is an extremely rare and very special SAAB that was featured on SAAB Planet August 19, 2019: Saab 900 Carlsson Project . A lot of hard work, labor, sweat and love was put into restoring this SAAB – a true work of art, by Scanwest Autosport of Seattle, WA.

As you can see and read, this is a very specific car with a large number of recognizable parts, so it is impossible not to notice it. It is only important that the car does not stay somewhere in a secret garage, but we firmly believe that as soon as it goes out on the street, it will be noticed, discovered and returned to the owner.

  • So tragic. I remember seeing it getting worked on when I visited scanwest. I can’t believe someone would 1 steal a SAAB and 2 let that happen… It’s heartbreaking.
