A small introduction of a unique Crew cab.
It start with a brand new single cab that the coach builder " Lindkvist & Forssell Karosserifabrik"in Uppsala/Sweden get directly from the Swedish importer Scania Vabis in the early 1958.

Here I will continue to get my story about the "Swedish Binz". How I get it and how I restore/preserve it.

First time I seen this Crew cab was at a SAAB forum back in 2003 I think.
It was alot of pictures from a privat junk yard :)

But it was something wrong with that crew cab... it has to big rear window for a usual crew cab.

I didnŽt know at this time where it was? But a friend told me that he know where it was, but he says the owner was a hard man to deal with, nothing is for sale! at least was it told me so...

at the moment I give it up and almost forget it....almost :lol:

Many years later I hear that a friend of my have the opportunity to buy this unique Crew cab, and I was really fast to answer YES if I was interested to help salvage it.
It was around 2010, and it was the first time I seen it in person.

I wasnŽt late to tell him that IŽam interested to buy it if he want to sell....but he want to do re resto him self, he says.






But the rescue get as planned, so the story can be continued :)

I saw that too on the nose of that one bus. And, I was wondering what type of company the logo represented?

Oh, man, I would roll the "Prick" bus with pride!
Did anybody git that baby?

Yes, the "Prick" bus is also rescued and will be on the road some day. Not of me, but another guy is collecting parts to start with the resto.

My guess is Prick is a soda pop. We have Squirt.

apparently "prick" means "dot"? red dot? just guessing.

German Krew Thu Jan 28, 2021 8:30 am

This could be 15 different meanings depending on where you are from but I thought this was worth a laugh so this was taking from the urban dictionary.

PRICK: Worse than a douche and jerk combined. A guy who thinks they know everything but in reality they're stupid hypocrite. A guy who loves to cause drama then acts like nothings wrong. Most likely a guy named cliff.
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Please no offense to any samba members named Cliff.

Reminds me of the old joke, what's the difference between a Porsche and a porcupine? Porcupines have pricks on the outside.

After I got my Porsche this became my dad's favorite joke to tell whenever I showed up driving it.
