The car has changed our society and our way of life. That is not a excessive claim. For most, the car is a natural part of the everyday life and it is perceived as difficult to be without. It has guided the planning and not least been an engine for industrial development and provided many jobs on the Swedish west coast.
The exhibition reflects the different ways the car society has emerged and It’s significance – historically and today. The focus is on the car’s relevance for people and communities as well as the car’s role in society today and in the future.
In Prisma Västra Götaland you will find the exhibition catalog with more information about the car society on the Swedish west coast. Prisma Västra Götaland is a digital arena for our region’s great industrial heritage and unrivaled community development from 1850 until today.
Art students from Folkuniversitetet High School in Trollhättan have during the autumn met, created with and listened to a preschool class and some SAAB-veterans. Now, the result of this competence renewal project is being displayed in the form of a mini-exhibition at the Saab Car Museum.
On December 6 we dedicate this day to the project by showing pictures of cars that the preschool class has created within the skills exchange project at Innovatum Science Center. In addition, there will also be a screening of a film that students have recorded related to Saab.
The mini exhibition will be with us throughout the rest of the year.
Welcome to a new theme exhibition at the Saab Car Museum! This year marks 30 years since the three Saab 9000 broke the world record at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama, USA. The idea was that Saab wanted to show that unmodified factory cars were durable and reliable, by running 100,000 km in 20 days.
With the help of the Saab Car Museum support group and a couple of talented enthusiasts among Saab veterans this exhibition is now ready to be presented to our visitors on 8th of October. We celebrate the inauguration with open houses and lectures by Olle Granlund, project manager for the Talladega project. With us on-site during the day there will be people involved in the project, sharing their experiences. There will also be screenings in the movie theater.
