I've just bought the X70 and was on earlier scrounging kit. (thanks Cliff) No doubt I will be after some more soon!

This is my first photo forum, I am a pure beginner/numpty, so, be gentle!

I had an ESPIO years ago and thought I'd get a bit more modern!

Now I've got the manual...Hopefully I will be able to learn the fancy tricks!....Here's hoping....

Thanks for the welcome guys! I have a feeling that I've seen at least one of you floating about somewhere or other!! We shall see!

And yes Gwyn the M.R. is still there!

Tip:- When you come up to it.....Just keep going! Don't stop (Unless you really have to!!)

Cheers all!

I used to live in Wantage and shopped in Swindon a lot. Took the kids to the pool there too. We're talking back in the early 80's here mind. Haven't been back for years.

Welcome to the forum! Is that your 99 in your gallery picture by any chance? If it is I'm highly envious...

Thanks again guys!

Hefty....I wish that is was my 99!

If you want to learn more..Have a look at uksaabs forum

(performance) BIRDIEMANGO. I am not shouting here! If you look...

You will understand. He has pit the full story on there! He takes it around the country doing track days etc.

I've not been over to uksaabs for ages, I was a regular on saabcentral for a long time but not been there much lately either. Got a pair of notchback moose deflectors m'self. This is my daily driver:




There aren't many cars I'd swap her for but a rally prepped 99... My arm could be twisted!

A fellow Saaber with a nice 900! I don't know much about them I'm afraid!

9-5 in the background is my motor. I don't know much about about that

either! I will keep my eye out for you Hefty!
