Hi all,

I have been contacted by an Owners Club member that is looking for their old 96. Please PM me or reply if you know anything!

Their message:

I have been trying to locate my original Saab 96, which I was given for my 21st birthday in Jan 1971. I have now pretty much given up finding this car, mainly due to the stonewalling of the DVLA. I first contacted them in 1998, when the Saab was still registered with the DVLA. They of course would not give me any information, except to say that it was still registered. I offered to send my details, plus photos, which they could forward to the current keeper. This they refused to do. I enclose details of the car, in the slim hope that any members have seen it rotting in a barn!!

This car was delivered to Anderson Motors ( who also ran a grey Saab96, prepared for rallying - Driver Alan Main) in 1973 to be offered for sale by them on my behalf. It was subsequently sold by them.

According to the DVLA, it was put on SORN AROUND 2009

If there is anyone who might have an idea of the above cars whereabouts ( unlikely, I know,) they can contact me on xxx xxx xxx.


Cheers all! Hopefully UKS can work some magic!
