Nice bunch of Bahco's, Targa.
I am one of those Bahco collectors, but I live on the other side of the ocean.
Can you give the sizes or the numbers from the wrenches on the picture ?

Some of my Bahco's can be seen here:

...that other Swedish brand starting with an "S".

Swedish?!
Probably not "Saab," although it meets the criteria.

Early Saab cars were brilliantly engineered nearly-clean-sheet solutions.  We owned a 96 for a while, and I particularly admired how the doors met the side rails of the unit body as a simple overlap.  No need for fine tuning of panel fit, easy to weatherstrip, and they wouldn't jam up in heavy snow.  I found, after a year or so of driving it, that it felt really awkward if you drove it gently, but romped like an excited puppy, and held insane corners like it had magnets underneath tuned for asphalt if you treated the throttle as a toggle switch (off or on; not my original line, stolen from some car magazine).  It helped me understand why they were such great winter rally cars.  For those not familiar with the "sowbug":

And the toolkit had a really sweet Bahco wrench.

Nice collection and welcome!

I've been "thinking about" buying one of the Volvo wrenches for ages; I think it's time I finally did.

With the tire lever handle?
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....
