Days at the coast in a 99 are good days.

It's attracting a bit of attention wherever it goes, some like it, others are repulsed when I say I'm not painting it :D

Disgusted and intrigued....(is that a dogging spot?)!

Nothing disgusting about that vehicle, it's had a life and is still alive and kicking (if only he knew how much surgery had been necessary.....).

Most importantly, you're using the car as a car, not as some museum piece and it looks fabulous just the way it is!

The 99 has been getting used and used and used, it is such a lovely tight old car, it has more body roll than the later cars I've driven but it takes everything in it's stride.

The last outing was to the fantastic Buckie car show where Dad was having a day out with his Aero

I didn't have mine booked in so it got a nice spot at the roadside

I'm hoping to use it as transport to one of the bigger shows next year, in the meantime i've rust protected it with Dinitrol and I'll use it until the salt comes :D

Glad to see it's getting plenty of use Ian.
Your Dads Aero is a saloon, very nice. My preferred shape when it comes to 900s (either 2 or 4 door form).
That beige/yellow 99 looked very nice too.
