Enthusiast Drives the Only Saab 95 De Luxe "Bullnose" in Poland
Tomasz Szwejkowski lives in Warsaw, Poland, and is a big Saab fan. This 1961 Saab 95 De Luxe with a two-stroke engine is the second in his collection of the marque, and it probably won't be his last. We asked him some questions to get to know him, his car, and the Polish car scene better.
Q: How long have you owned this Saab?
Q: How did you come to find out about and acquire the Saab?
Q: How often do you drive the Saab?
Q: Where do you love to drive it?
Q: Do you do the mechanical work on the car yourself?
Previously I was unfortunately not able to restore the whole car by myself, but luckily there is a place in Poland where old Saabs get their second chance: a shop in the Southern Poland city of Kańczuga Southern Poland, where the team of enthusiasts work hard to bring these beautiful cars back to the streets of Poland and other European countries.
Q: What is your favorite thing about the car?
Q: How do you keep this passion for your Saab alive?
Q: What is the classic car scene like in your area?
Of course the most popular cars are the ones that were produced in Poland in the past. Today we do not have any Polish cars that are still being produced, therefore it is a great that people tend to keep the old models alive.
I'm part of the SAAB GT Classic Club, which gathers owners of classic Saabs together. This not only gives me a chance to see other great Saabs but also to talk with other people who care about classic Saabs in the same way I do.
Q: Is there anything else you'd like to add?
