Neo Brothers - UK Unveiling Of The Neo Saab 96SS
Neo Brothers at Intsaab13 Wicksteed Park, Kettering
We are pleased to announce that Erik Carlsson and Peter Bäckström very
kindly unveiled our Neo 96ss at the International Saab Club meeting which
was held at Wicksteed Park on 3rd -- 4th August 2013.
The car was well received by the guests at the event and we had much praise
and congratulations on our achievement.
The recurring question was "When will it go on the track?" In an ideal
world, we would like to drop all the other work and concentrate on testing
and adjusting the 96ss but, common sense and commercial reality must
prevail which means that we must concentrate on the final stages of the
transfer of stock into our new warehouse. Having said that, we 'really
want' to test it on the track by October/November of this year so that it
can be properly ready for action next year. Watch this space!
The Intsaab 2013 Kettering event was a resounding success -- even the sun
was out for most of the time.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Saab Owners Club and the
international Saab Clubs meeting, this year, we went to town on the Neo
Brothers stand. It entailed a 150 square metre marquee, our hospitality
rig and a further external area of some 150 square metres of forecourt
space which housed numerous cars three of which were our race cars
including the 96ss, the Grinnall as well as two of our customer's cars that
we have over the years customised. In addition to the cars on display, we
had a large selection of new Saab parts for sale as well as Saab
Expressions clothing, accessories and memorabilia. There were in excess of
20 of our staff on hand in order to look after our guests and customers.
Indeed we were congratulated by the organisers of the event for the largest
stand ever in the history of their various meetings - the acknowledgement
We would like to extend a very big thank you to all our customers,
supporters, Saab enthusiasts, sponsors and organisers that all contributed
to the success of the event.
Please see below the link to our photo album where our photographers
captured some key moments.
We are looking forward to Poland next year.

How to Add an AUX Input to a Saab 9-3
This video shows how to add an AUX input jack to a 2003 or newer Saab 9-3.
Before doing this you might want to look in your center armrest and see if
there's one there already. I had one, I just didn't know it. Oh well... I
like the location of this one better anyway. My car is a 2006. I don't know
what year Saab started adding the AUX input in the armrest, but some of the
earlier cars didn't have them.
Anyway, now I have TWO AUX inputs! :-)
If your car is a 2003 through 2005, go here to see how to connect the wires
directly to the pins on the back of the stereo:
Yes, You Can Build a Sick Vintage Rally Car - AFTER/DRIVE
Ever wanted to go back in time, when screaming two-stroke Saabs were the
kings of rally? Find out how you can, with Bruce Turk, Saab jedi-master and
vintage rally dude.
On the car's specs Bruce adds: "It now has a 850cc three cylinder two
stroke motor that started life as a 750cc but the block was bored out to
850cc. It has Monte Carlo 850 pistons, a GT 750 crank shaft, a dual Solex
"Super kit Carb, lightened flywheel, heavy duty clutch (extra springs
added) fully ported intake and Exhaust
ports to rally spec II specifications and a Spec II rally 4 speed Saab gear
box which is very rare I might add... Oh, estimated HP is 60 BHP"
