Saab Club Meeting in Northern Finland

The Saab Club Of Finland had a meeting at Sotkamo, in Northern Finland. I decided to visit Tikkis in Lappeenranta on the way, and we drove to Sotkamo together. The highlight of the meeting was a visit to the Talvivaara mine. Some pretty big machines over there…

Also – I found a few detail items for the ’78 Turbo: New micro switch and cold start valve, brake pads and installation kit, some nuts and bolts, new trunk light. And also I found the spare parts book with the T78 I have been missing. So, a good trip.

On the downside – now that I have the spare parts book I can see all the hard to find parts that I still need… 😀

A few pictures:

Going through his spare parts Tikkis found a nice little detail piece for the 1978 Turbo – the original emblem. And also a few old magazines featuring the Turbo.

    Hi, Tommi.
    Might you scan the 99Turbo Parts Catalog and provide a .pdf of it?
    I purchased a brand new 1978 SAAB 99 Turbo in October of 1978 and I still have it, but after being stored for 32 years, I have elected to begin restoring it (or at least getting it running again). Of course, parts are an issue and having a parts catalog would be very helpful.
    Thank you.
