Discovering the Volvo Raptgbil 915 Sugga

SowsPosted by gduhem Fri, April 25, 2008 19:07:17

The Sugga is not well known in France. In fact it seems only 4 or 5 cars including mine are in France. Very few (microscopic) Suggor when we consider the American classic military cars such as Dodge, Jeep,... we can find in exhibitions.

The way I discovered the Sugga is a little bit strange or amazing.

The first time I saw the Sugga was in a video in the 1996 (Damn! I thought this was in the 80’s!). This was a video clip of the pop group Republica for the single “Ready to go”. The English version of the video included flashes of a car, 4WD with a strange body (rounded shape at the rear and straight lines in he front)I must say these flashes impressed my eyes and I never forgot them!! smiley (the singer too... smiley)

Few years after, reading a French magazine about classic cars, I found and recognize immediately the One. This one (with a white body) was sold in auction in Paris, 20 000€ and this let me know the One was built by Volvo, but without any other information.

Then happily arrived the WWWeb in my life!! smiley And as for everyone, this helped me to discover the name of the car and to finally begin to look for one.
