Haven't seen a V4 by chance for years, then two this month. A poison green 96 on the A1 heading north near Dunbar today, and a blue 95 heading south on the M1 near Sheffield on the 14th.

Sadly, I wasn't in a Saab either time!

Hi Melle! Yes, just picked it up this morning! Will reply in detail later - suffering from a dreadful lurgy at the moment...!

PS: Pete, did you get the email I sent you yesterday?

BTW, was watching "Crocodile Dundee 2" the other night, and there is a 96 in the middle of the convoy that sets off on the mission to rescue the girl from the drug baron's mansion!

I was too busy admiring the RO80....

Just had a quick search and the 'German' scenes were apparently shot in the Czech republic - Saab's must be even rarer there? And the NSU Ro80 they're driving must be even rarer...

Well spotted!
It is already on Youtube:

That scene is set in 1970s Bad Godesberg, a suburb of Bonn, Germany. I doubt if there were many 96s in Germany in that time, there *never* were many Saabs in Germany...

Not exactly 'on the road' but did anyone spot the 96 in the background of the new series 'Little Drummer Girl' about 2mins in...

Wow, that looks clean! I recently bought two Cologne V6s to play with.

Not exactly a car nor a V4 but I think is very nice. The first time I see a V6 by the way. I thought at first it was a V4.

It seems this nice 96 goes to Bretagne (France) from Netherlands every year for a journey,

Martin, if you refer to my pics, yes I was in Chicago for a short holiday in July. The car clearly needed some love: supposedly souped up engine with chrome plated rocker covers, but ropey water hoses, rusted water pipes, missing fuse box lid, missing vacuum advance line etc. The interior was immaculate by the way, I like the US market MB-Tex-like upholstery.

On a vacation?

I never understand why they swap the radiator and expansion tank caps.

I spotted a nice 96 in the Lincoln Park area in Chicago (here: by chance on Wednesday:

Had a wee chat with Mark the friendly mechanic; they roll it in and out the shop every day, but that's about it. He told me they sold a Quantum two years ago, but apart from that, he said he hasn't seen a two stroke or V4 in the workshop in the past couple decades.
