Roadkill: 1960s Saab 95

This next roadkill feature comes from Wayne who writes:  Here’s a treat straight from the main drag in Bluff, Utah, land of sand and rocks and sun. A late 60’s (early 70’s?) Saab 95. Asking $900.00 with a salvage value of about $300.00. Used to run, she said, but is needing electrical work. Better hurry the owner said it was going to the crusher this week if not sold. Not listed anywhere except in front of this gas station. Also not running.
Contact XXX.XXX.XXXX Update SOLD (note: if you are reading this after Oct of 2015, there is a good chance the car is long gone, so please don’t call Leah and offer to trade your slightly used snowmobile, a mint condition garden gnome collection, or a box of salt for this thing).

The subject of the e-mail from Wayne was “A Saab! A Saab!” which instantly reminded me of the classic Ren & Stimpy song from the commercial for Log!.  So instead of our usual didactic commentary, here is a little tune called Saab!


What rolls down stairs
alone or in pairs,
and over your neighbor’s dog?

What’s great for a snack,
And fits on your back?
It’s Saab, Saab, Saab

It’s Saab, it’s Saab,
It’s big, it’s heavy, it’s wood.
It’s Saab, it’s Saab, it’s better than bad, it’s good.”

Everyone wants a Saab
You’re gonna love it, Saab
Come on and get your Saab
Everyone needs a Saab
Saab Saab Saab

Saab from Scandinavia.
