Q: Greg I’ve enjoyed your car nostalgia work for many years, and especially if you mention the Saabs and how different they were. Do you remember those great Saabs of the late Fifties that sounded like bumble bees? They were called the Model 93 and came from Sweden. They also featured something novel to the car industry, a lifetime engine warranty. James G., Hartford, CT.

A: James I sure do as I, too, was a big Saab fan. I especially recall those many “bumble bee” sounding 1956-1959 Saab models with that “4 on the tree” coupled to a 3-cylinder, two-stroke engine.
