| 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!

| Cannot think of seeing one for ages either, must have made your day!|

| I'm getting used to being stared at when driving a V4 in the UK. I dare say in NL I see a 96 (or incidentally a 95) 'in the wild' at least once a fortnight. That's my own cars excluded. |

| Last one I saw on the road was yours Kenny! Thats leaving aside when both yours and mine have been together. Before that I saw Jake's old 96 bombing it along the road from Skirling to Biggar last year.|
Also I remember when I ran 96's in the 1970's that if you saw one on the road you flashed your headlights in recognition - anyone remember that?

| About a month ago I think I saw the rear end of a Saab 96 turning a corner just through some traffic lights which immediatley changed red .I chased but never found !|
If that was you on Belle vue bank , Low Fell, Gateshead in the North East make contact there are at least 2 of us in Newcastle area. Another possible sighting in North Shields about a year ago .
Nothing since .

| I drive my 96 stroker around here (West Dorset) on a regular basis - it does turn heads, probably because of the lovely noise and the cloud of blue smoke that follows it! When I eventually get my 95V4 back on the road - soon, I promise - I'll use that as well. They're for driving, not hiding away in the garage - I've promised myself that I'll try to drive it/them at least once a week.|

| I drive my 95 V4 in Somerset all the time. People sometimes point in disbelief. I have been driving mine for four years and I have never seen another one in that time.|

| My V4 is my daily drive around the bristol area.|
I've been driving it for five years and have never seen another one on the road in that time. I make regular trips into Somerset to see family, so will keep an eye out for you Flornce.
I miss the old days when one used to see another Sabb and flash the lights and wave.

| Veronica is my daily driver...i have been driving V4's for 10 years and the only cars i have seen on the road are either visiting me or going to the same event. Last time i spotted a car i didn't know was about 2 years ago..white 96 on the A11 just South of Elveden, Norfolk...i was driving my mates modern car and the driver must have thought I was mad with the waving and flashing lights!|

| I spotted a dark brown 96 tonight..right out side of my local pub..just as I was walking out of the door with a hand full of beers..still managed to get a long distance shot with my phone...now need to get my computer to recognise that the phone is connected!..i think it belongs to a guy called Derek (not "our" Derek) who lives in the Brighton area.|
