Ah yes, I should probably explain...

The 95 was sold to Saab City where it was on display, they made me an offer after I borrowed it back for our wedding, which it performed excellently at (ie: didn't break down), so I thought we would go out on a high!

I asked that they give me 'first refusal' should they ever decide to sell it again - you can imagine my surprise when I found out the dealership had gone!?! However it looks like the Director of Saab City has given her a good home and also knows I'd have her back if he ever decides to sell her.

So I am without a classic Saab, but am holding out for the right one, when it comes along (and funds allow!).


Cheers,

Simon

Spotted by father in law in Stockholm last week - bet he didn't expect to be stuck with a Saab-bore for a son in law, let alone find himself taking pictures of old swedish tin!?

He even joked about it in his father-of-the-bride speech "I haven't lost a daughter so much as gained a Saab"

Before I forget, I saw a white 96 (k reg) travelling towards Brighton on the Exceat Bridge, driven by a blonde lady (June 17th).

We also saw the blue 96 local to me, in it's garage, up on ramps, but I wasn't allowed to investigate as we were already late!

Oh well, maybe next time

Just walking back to the office when I spotted something blue parked right at the end of this street...


luckily it was parked directly parallel to where I was walking and had a very distinctive back end...

Neat! You need to leave a note! The last time I saw a 96 in the wild (not at a Saab event) was 5 or 6 years ago, going the opposite way on the motorway. I ended up becoming good friends with the owner after I met him via one of the forums.

I left my business card tucked in the drivers side window rubber, and it was gone when I saw it again. But I might tuck a copy of the Enthusiast under the windscreen wiper next time...

They've got a local car parking permit, so I think they're local.

Coming back from a walk today in the 96 - for the first time ever since I got it 4 years back I saw another one coming the other way! A blue 95 - heading East on the A199 just out of East Linton around 2.30. Anyone here? We did the old salute of a headlamp flash.

Does the Fuchs wheels have the same bolt pattern as the SAAB sport 4 bolt hubs? Or do they need modifying.
