    I really enjoyed our 67 SAAB 96 2 stroke. Great cars, but the tin worm loves them too.

    The 1960s were great times for tin worms.

    I had both a 68 & 69 V4 and also a 77 99 EMS. Back then they were truly a SAAB and not what they turned into in later years.

    I just went deeper into the photos. Who does a full paint restoration but leaves all of the undercarrage rust going? Makes me wonder about the quality of the work...

    I believe he's been driving it on salt encrusted roads for a several years since the restoration...

    Then my question would be "Who drive's a fully restored vintage car on salt-encrusted roads? Makes me wonder about the quality of the owner." :D

    If'n it was a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa I'd understand but a Saab was meant to be driven in wintery conditions. They didn't even sell them in warm weather states in the mid sixties. Sorry for the sermonette.....:D
