Spotted by my wife outside Paignton Post Office yesterday (2nd July):

Hmm! Green? Roof-rack? Not one of your collection, is it John?

Good to hear, along with John's recent finds it seems like the number of 95's around has just doubled!

More 'spotted' than 'on the road' this poor Saab was spotted in a scrap yard in Suffolk. According to the photographer - all the cars in this pic have since gone :(

I FINALLY DONE IT...found a SAAB on the road while I had a SAAB with me..but a bit of cheating as I was towing a stroker..driving through a tiny Dorset village and almost crashed when I spotted this early longnose stroker. Had a chat with the owner and he's a SAAB man through the core. Looking forward to seeing a bit more of this in the future.


The bullnose car I have here is the Late Laurence Brakes car..here for running repairs and to have some of the MOT bodges removed..more on that elsewhere.

A 1964 Stroker!! - nice. Definitely needs some period correct plates not horrible plastic jobbies. Kinda like the yellow stripe

He told me that the stripe was added as he was fed up with people pulling out in front of his "hedgerow green" car..he says it works.
Some debate as to the actual year of the car...it's a "bitsa" but has a triple carb engine, discs up front and Jetex exhaust..sounded great!

A gleaming white 96, on an "L" plate, seen going north on the A21 (just north of Battle) about 1700 on Friday the 1st August.

Sorry for not posting this earlier - I was going down there for my son's wedding, and there wasn't any 'net connection out in the sticks!

I only caught a brief glimpse of the car as it was traveling the other way, and took me completely by surprise! I was in the 9000, and would have given him a flash - er, so to speak - but by the time I'd recovered from the shock of seeing it, it was gone!!!

Not exactly on the road, more spotted on the internet...

I know it's just in shadow, but how cool is the paintwork 'fade' on the 95...



I think it could work quite well...

Possibly this one Peter?

The car is local to the area and has been owned by the same lady for 35 years...more pics when I can find them.
