Those of you with kids might get that quote.

One of those rigs is a SAAB 99 or maybe an EMS. Welcome to the forum.

Nah, Deano, it's a Saab 96. We later had a couple of 99s one of which was an EMS. Now we have a '96 Saab 9000. Suz was into Saabs before they were cool.
The brown of the 40 in the pic was a GM color as found on mid '70s era Monte Carlos. Remember those? The license plate on the pictured Saab now resides on our FJ62.
Brad, what front bumper did you have on the 60? It looks sweet.

Yeah, I thought it was a Karmann Giha...... Dang, I don't have any awesome quotes for a Saab96. Is it at least air cooled?

Thanks Crash, I made both front and rear bumpers myself. I modeled the front bumper after Man-A-Fre's 4+Plus FJ60 bumper and tweaked it to my own needs. Jim (2badfjs) was my neighbor at the time and helped bend the tube.

Not quite as cool your your 96, but my Dad bought one of these 900 Turbo's in the early 80's. Fun little 4 cyl turbo as I recall (from the back seat....). We drove it around Georgia for a bunch of years and most of the folks around there thought it was from Mars.....



HIJACK OFF - Sorry - had to partake in the Saab nostagia. Welcome Claude. Your historical fleet is impressive and you did wonders for that old 60.
