I just see they are 5 bolt. Sorry.

My job takes me all over the country and I have seen a few 96s on the road(law of averages I suppose),but I saw this one the other day.



I hope the person that owns it doesnt mind me posting it with the number plate showing as I have no idea how to blank it out

Don't know if I mentioned but that yellow car used to be owned by a guy in Stafford. I know where this photo was taken as the seats John is having that are in my car came out of the blue car parked behind this one! Small world.

Went back there last night (sorry for the dodgy pic), I didn't get to speak to the owner but his wife told me he's going to the International, so look out for it there!



Looks like a great article for the magazine, albeit with some MUCH better photos!

My '71 95V4 has been off the road for a few years - waiting for new sills, some other welding and a new engine (that's already built) - but I just haven't been able to get to it. As you may know, I've also acquired a stroker and a late-model ('93)c900S 'vert since the 95 was taken off the road! I have some more storage/garaging now and will soon be moving the 95 to my home hamlet so I can work on it more frequently closer to home. My neighbour is a coded welder - well versed in motor repairs - and has offered to help. As soon as I get started on it I'll be adding it to the "Projects" forum. Watch this space - again.

I'm currently off work as I've been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes - not too serious but it's been allowed to develop for a while and is causing me a few problems. On lots of medication to bring the blood sugar down from sky-high to normal and my eyes have now stopped going funny - kaleidescopic effects! - so I guess I'll be driving again soon. Won't be back at work for a week or so, so I guess it's time to hit the "projects" - where shall I start?

David (in age order: me, 96 2T, 260-2 Saabo, 95 V4 and a c900S Aero Vert, plus a new-ish 9-3 Aero TTiD 180 SW)

There's often an orange 96 parked by a small garage in Newburgh, in Fife. Just on the main road, left side, as you enter from Cupar direction.
Before I got my SAAB 96 this summer, I'd often thought about stopping in to see if he wanted to sell it....

My 96 was on the roads yesterday, between Stroud and Pembrokeshire but far from being under it's own steam though.
In fact, it was on the back my trailer, covered in 33 years of dust and sat on 4 very perished tyres.
On the plus side, as of yesterday, I'm the proud owner of a 1973 96.

Looks like quite a project!

With the white door, it looks like it could pass for a Swedish 'Polis' car!

I like the double wing mirrors too, you can never be too careful. Good luck and let us know how this progresses!
