Thanks for all the excitement & pix. SAAB's were perculiar things, all the heads drove them around, didn't they? I remember when...

Far Out, baby.

Now pacing around until minion delivers rental Porker. I've picked the wrong day for this, it's snowing again. Hope the danged thing has a German heater. Mezzo sitting by the door.

Will there eventually be a SNAFU 21 number plate to adorn the Porker ?

Brief update: bike fits in front 'trunk' but eats up all the space. In the passenger space there is only enough room for a blonde and a toothbrush. (The toothbrush is a squeeze)

L8er!


Brrmmmmmmmm!

My first car was a '67 Volvo 122S with dual SU carbs. The SUs also needed oil for the throttle slides to function properly.

I have nothing to offer, except to say that I love the Cayman. It is such a beautiful car with really great lines.

Good luck!

Yes, an old bold man in the drive seat and a young fake blonde in the passenger seat is common with these cars.

Anyway, since it does not have a spare wheel, having a folder around can be very useful.

We will see pictures, right?

It varies almost on a day to day basis, but £1.40 or so will buy you a litre at the moment.
