all good shots,Vic. not having people in the way is a bonus at something like this. the yellow soft top would be my choice to drive home.

Vic.

Considering most of the cars were 96 or 95 V4s - these (and the gorgeous red Sonnet) are powered by the Ford Cologne V4 from the Taunus 12M

The stub nose 95/96 and the red 92B are powered by a two-stroke engine designed by DKW (what eventually became today's Audi).

The MCY 900 Turbo 16S Cabrio - built in Finland (as might some of the 96s)

The upside down 96 - I thought that was a tribute to the rally driver Eric Carlsson.

Cheers Vic

My Dad had 13 Saabs altogether - I am on my 4th - the new generation 9-5, I love it.

They really do have character. Current cars tend to end up the same shape, no doubt because they are designed in wind tunnels.
Best regards, John

The Triumph engine was probably the shortest lived collaboration - the 2.0 litre was very different to the 1.7 and 1.85s that were shared with the Dolomite.....Scania took on the engineering from the early 1970s - without that there would've been no Turbo.

Don't forget.....

Fiat - for the later diesels
Isuzu for the V6 diesel

Before the whole concern went bankrupt, the plan was to use BMW engines to replace the GM units....
