Swedish nostalgia

Once, long before they stopped being,

and even before they became too thinly diguised Opels,

New Saabs used to be idiosyncratic to the bone,

like rugged, yet somehow refined, scandinavian individualists.

  

A mid 60's Saab 96, looking the part in white,

sporting red rims and whitewall tyres...

  

And for me, there's something melancholic about this shot...

The light, colors, atmosphere,.. the car...

it really feels like some picture from a 60's magazine.
