Nice car, Mal.
Undecided on the indicators but edging towards the originals but either are great with that colour.

I like both, but I'm starting to sway towards the originals.

This one has now been sold and should be heading to its new home at the weekend.
Its a nice car and I've not had it long, but I had an offer accepted on a T16 and I do not have room for more than two hobby cars (mores the pity).

The more space you have the more cars you gather.. I'm having a clear out, probably no more Saab stuff but a few tractors etc to go, so I have a workshop for body/paint etc and a separate space to keep finished/nice stuff.

I volunteer to "house" any overspills......in the interests of public health of course.

A lovely car to drive up the A9, I have done it on many occasions. In a few different 900i's.

C900s have been popular for those with taste in Orkney for a long while. I owned six in a row when I still lived there. I'm sure it will have gone to a good home.
