22/03/2006 08:21:12   jake   has anyone ever converted a 96 into a rag top or a 95 into a pickup/ute or anything else that is interesting i recall a couple of very tasty lowered and modified street 96 saloons e g reccesed front indicators choped roofs flushed off door handels etc  
22/03/2006 09:55:39   Al   I've seen a few chopped 96s. A bunch of guys from the old Saab Midlands Autoclub built a 2-seater open top 96 in the 70s/80s, it was quite well known for a while. There was also a purple chopped & dropped 96 doing the rounds of custom shows about 10-20 years ago but not seen or heard of it for a long while. There's probably a few pics of it on the Net ... somewhere!

22/03/2006 11:30:56   Senor Burt   I've seen a 95 pickup mod and several convertible 96's. SAAB did make some 95 vans.

My 95 should be vaguely interesting if I ever get round to finishing it.

Doesn't take it out much as he still hasn't been able to find anyone to make him a full hood (frame and fabric) for it! Trying to persuade him to bring it along to one of the local SW shows this year.
