I guess that is the compact model. A bit hard on suspension but real easy to maneuver.

Was that a wreck? I first thought it was set up there in a junkyard or something.then I saw the broken hitch,the tongue bent down,the trunk bashed down,and the bumper bent up.I still can't imagine the circumstances that would lead to it ending up like that.

Ever seen the race where you pull a camper?
Might have been practicing and got a little
too heavy footed in a turn.

SAAB roof structure passes testing in a solid display of rigidity. Jim

I thought so too, somebody sat it up there.

But looking at the damage on the back and trunk, looks like maybe a hard jack knife, somehow ended up balanced on top!

Like to have seen that!

And,what's the tank laying next to it?Fresh or gray water tank? Sewer holding tank? Fuel tank? Or,maybe just a tank sitting that has no relation to the car and camper.That is what made me think junkyard,just extra stuff laying around.I do think it was an accident though,a freak jack knife situation.

I do. I have owned 3 SAABs one 1960 93, a 1968 96 Monte Carlo with 3 solex carbs on the 2 stroke 3 cyl. and a 99. All interesting solid cars. Jim

It is indeed the result of an accident somewhere on the Prince's Highway in Southern New South Wales , Australia. It is the freshwater holding tank that has become dislodged and sits next to the Saab .
I've no idea how it happened either , though Saabs are front wheel drive and aren't too good at towing , at least that is what I found when I owned a 99E .

I too, had figured it was a accident from the hitch. But, no one mentioned it had to be a Australian trailer as there is not a door on the right hand side of the trailer like we would have here in the USA.
