1992 Proton Saga Aeroback (12-valve, Mega Valve, poor condition)
Photographed in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Assembly : Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia
Notes : This car is missing several badges and parts, and has suffered significant damage throughout its exterior.
The Proton Saga Aeroback is quite a rare spot these days, so when I saw this one, I knew I had to 'save' her ( preserve the car in photos ). I am aware that she's not exactly in mint condition... but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right ? Underneath that tired, worn-out and abused skin... is a seasoned, 22-year-old veteran. Amazingly, despite her decrepit exterior, she's still in running condition. This specific example of the Saga Aeroback proves just how bulletproof the early Protons really are.
It's just such a shame that the owner of this classic Saga Aeroback has not been kind to the old girl. She deserves so much better, don't you think ? I mean, just look at that rad '12-valve' sticker, and those genesis-era Proton badged mud flaps. With a few thousand ringgit and a few days in the workshop, she could look factory fresh, just like this well-loved example.
