After 3 years without a classic Saab, I'm now back in the fold!

I've missed getting my hands dirty and my knuckles scraped (and asking for lots of technical help)! So once I saw this 'beauty' I had to bring her home...

brief stop at Watford Gap, having given up going cross-country I rejoined the motorway, even with a dodgy clutch, no tickover and a stuck-on handbrake!

Backed it down the drive (while the missus was away) and the dog seems to have claimed ownership, not entirely sure how she managed to get herself in there...

Thanks Simon

Looks like the Car motif shirt in XL size is sold out.

Will you be offering more at a later date or do I have to loose some mass and fit into a L size ! ?

Hi James,

Here's the link to my Etsy page;

Spread the word to your nearest and dearest if they ask what you'd like for Christmas!

Hi Simon ,

Thanks for the information. I didn't realise that they were inserts. I like those

Might treat myself to one of your 96 shirts.
Where can I buy one ?

Hi James, I probably got them on ebay - they are made by Atlas, so just look up 15" Atlas whitewall.

I was told to fit them on old tyres, as the oil leaks out of new tyres and can make the whitewalls go brown at the edges. I didn't listen and mine have gone brown, so I'll be getting a new set at some point.

You certainly get around Simon.

Fantastic pictures of a great car, thanks for posting.

I will have to replace the tyres on my 96 at some point. Those whitewalls look great.
Where did you source those ?

Hi Simon,
Great update and photos and great to see the pick up getting out and about!
UK_SubPosted - 29 Nov 2018 : 12:45:58
Been awhile since I last update this thread - here's some pics of what we've been up to...

Homeward bound from Swedish Day with a 96 roof section strapped to the pickup - like you do.

On display at the Prescott Hillclimb show - very close to my old orange 95

Hooning up the hill - felt fast - looked slow!

Selling my wares...

if anyone wants a greetings card, let me know

Popped over to Belgium for the Saab Festival

Spa was just up the road, so made sense to check it out.

At the show - parked next to Tonys old 95

Small argument with a tank ;)

At a local car show, when the evening were still light.

Doggo sticking her out the window for the first time, she sneezed a lot!

Another car show, another enormous truck to park next to.

Parked up at the Bicester Sunday Scramble - I cant recommend this show enough! 5 entry, park where you like and see some amazing cars and snoop around the restoration workshops and warehouses.

Someone on Instagram suggested this name (after 'El Camino') and it kind of stuck.

More news and presumably photos to follow in the New Year.

Representing Saab at the Petrol heads Pinewood Nurseries car show.

Initially parked next to an El Camino (what my car dreams of being)...

and then this monster parked next to me!

(I gave the Lambo plenty of room too)

Made some progress recently. Fuel tank 'well' painted and fixed tank back in place. New sender sealed and working...

Trial fit of two stroke door card, I've got the door release and window winder arms, just need to source the plastic collars that fit under them, and also the split pin that holds the handles in place...

Cheers Derek .

Scroll down this page. I think the Volvo one fits ok but I will have to check the size.
UK_SubPosted - 01 Oct 2017 : 18:18:22
Took the sender out, as I have a better one, and found this sitting just below the opening!

As far as I can tell, it's a milk bottle top, how it got in the tank is anyone's guess!

If someone gave the dimensions of the shaft, and the hole in which it fits, I have access to graphite impregnated nylon bushes of a whole range of sizes. Obviously it's time I got my own car :)

A rubber grommet should do.
