TUR581M, Verona Green 96V4. Anyone own / seen it?
« on: 11 July 2011, 10:10:50 PM »
Just curious as to what happened to my old 96V4. Lovely condition when I sold it, less than 50k original miles and one owner prior to me. No rust - I had loads of welding done, including new sills from Highgate. Last seen resplendent in both shades of Verona Green - all it needed was a quick blow-over to make it perfect.

Anyone ever seen it? Or does anyone own it? I sold it to a chap in Godalming.

I've not heard of it since you sold it mate...but hopefully it's still thrumming around the lanes of Surrey  ;)

....An opportunity to win back the old girl!  ;)

I must say I am sorely tempted to acquire one of these - or a even much earlier example! Sadly I have a 1932 MG that I'm struggling to finance the restoration of so it's a bit of a non-starter  :-\

I regret having sold my 1979 Midget that I owned from when it was 6 months old as well  :(

She was seen in Devon today by a fellow Saab enthusiast!

Probably worth dropping that pic on Faceache as I'm not sure James drops in here much, but he does frequent Faceplant.

OK, there's so many active Saab groupings on Faceache, but I have dropped it onto the main one in hope, and PM'ed James here, too.

Hey gang

Just discovered Chris's message sitting in my facebook 'Other' folder.  Great to see the old girl's still about :D  Thanks for taking the time, Chris :)
