Apparently it is not a good time for car museums these days. Here’s another one that is selling out, it is in the Netherlands again. The Saab Museum Kempink is closing after forty years.
We’ve seen quite a few car museums sell out the past few years. Now it’s this one in the Netherlands. It’s a strange thing about the Dutch and Saab cars. They don’t just have ‘a’ Saab Museum, no, they have three of them! In fact, there was even a fourth, but that closed some years ago. So now it is Mr and Mrs Kempink who have decided to call it a day. They started their museum in the Dutch city of Aalten forty years ago and they want to retire now.
So the entire collection of the museum is for sale now. Think of cars like a Saab 92, a two-stroke Sonett, a Sonett 3 and a 96 two-stroke Sport. All-in-all there are 20 Saabs in the collection, the youngest being a 9-3 convertible. Apart from the cars, there is a huge collection of car parts, paraphernalia and all sorts of goodies.
