Earth, Wind & Fire Live – Devotion (1981)

17th of March 2017

Never fully realised what a fantastic live band EWF was! Very influential group according to this Guardian article.

Wonderful audience participation on this complete “Devotion” live recording

2017 Geneva Motor Show

15th of March 2017

If Jaguar succeeds in bringing this I-Pace to the market in 2018 it will be very interesting! Good looking crossover. The

German “premium” brands have nothing to offer (Except the BMW i3 no dedicated EVs. Electric Golf and B-Class are

rebuilt old fashioned cars)

Toyota/Lexus also no offerings. Volvo’s first EV still many years away. So quite a surprise to have Jaguar as the first luxury

manufacturer after Tesla. Sister company LandRover will probably get their version of the I-Pace

Imo not much news on this years show: no technical breakthroughs, mostly facelifts, updated engines and cars that were

announced quite some time ago (Alpine for example)  YouTube channel of one of the best car journalists: Harry Metcalfe

Svenska Aeroplan AB

6th of March 2017

SAAB 9000 hatchback, probably an Aero version. First SAAB dealer I visited was the Auto Hotel Rotterdam, located at

the Mariniersweg street (They went out of business in 1995). At the time I had very little knowledge of what I was looking

at, but I found both the 9000 and the brochures quite impressive. Cars are emotion, true!

Quite a cool car. Not based on the Insignia, but on the longer 2010 Buick LaCrosse

When the new 9-5 was introduced, there was some criticism about the interior materials used. NVH, ergonomics.

seats, room and safety apparently very good

Such a pity GM continued to make the same mistakes as Ford Motor Company did with Volvo and Jaguar at the time:

first introducing a car from the lesser brand. And often a year later started building the “premium” version.

A Vauxhall / OPEL owner wouldn’t mind driving a SAAB derivative. The other way around was marketing suicide

Volvo V90 Cross Country

27th of February 2017

I think the 1979 introduced AMC Eagle was the first car in this category. Subaru’s Outback followed in 1994.

Volvo’s first XC-70 debuted in 1997

The standard V90 stationcar is relatively bland. This CrossCountry version looks so much more interesting and

cross-over like. Ground clearance of 21 cm or 8.3 inches is better than many SUVs offer

(CC name luckily now more discreet on the bumper than on previous versions)

Color: maple brown. Looks fantastic and really suits the car. Unfortunately most buyers usually go for fifty shades

of dreary grey or black
