Different kinds of Saabs

Most of us know that the company that started to produce the Saab cars was originally a aeroplane manufacturer. Hence the name SAAB - Svenska Aeroplan Aktie Bolaget - the Swedish Aeroplane Joint-stock Company.

And some of us have also heard about Data Saab, the company which developed computers and was actually the company where former Saab CEO Jan-Åke Jonsson started his Saab career.

But did you know that Saab made boats too? And camping trailers? I didn't until today. Here are a few pictures from Klassiker.
