New Salem Saab of Albany, New York, long time Saab History supporter and oldest continually family owned and operated Saab dealership in the North East, has chimed in with their history of servicing the 1986 Saab 900 Turbo Saab Friction Tester at Albany Airport.

I guess Burlington, Vermont and Boston, Massachusetts aren’t the only airports with the Saab Friction Testers here in the North East region of the United States! While Buffalo-Niagara Airport used to have a 1983 Saab 900 Friction Tester, it’s good to hear that it has been restored and is in safe keeping at the Saab USA Heritage Collection!

Darryl Carl, President and owner of New Salem Saab describes their first encounter with the 86 Saab 900 Turbo Friction Tester from nearby Albany County Airport.

“At first we thought it was just another Saab…then we realized it was much more involved, thankfully we have a very competent staff that has been trained to service Saab Friction Testers”..

It’s no surprise that a dealership like this with leadership that ensures proper service training can take care of the nearby Airport’s Saab Friction Tester. After all, this is same dealership that also outfitted Saab 9000 and Saab 9-5 police cars to their local sheriff’s department as well!

In the meantime, I understand that Albany Airport continues to use this 1986 Saab 900 Turbo Friction Tester, they also now own a Saab 9-5 Wagon Friction Tester in service as well! I have sent some inquiries over to them, so I hope to receive some more details and photographs in the near future.

A thank you goes to New Salem Saab for providing this information to Saab History.
