    Hello,

    I thought I should introduce myself. My name is Simon and I live in England (near London) and I have had a passion for Saabs ever since I could drive! I am a member of The Saab Enthusiasts UK and help to put the Club magazine together (I am the Art Editor)…
    http://www.saab-v4.co.uk/speedball/topic.asp?topic_id=3571

    This was my first Saab – originally beige 95

    I turned this

    into this

    This is my current project…

    I’ve made some small modifications

    And this is what I hope it will look like (although maybe not as low!)

    Please excuse my lack of Swedish (none), I cannot believe I haven’t been here sooner! I hope to join the Svenska Saaklubben very soon too.

    Thanks in advance,
    Simon

    The orange one is just lovely and 95 pickups are so cool! Must be one of the best car models to turn into a pickup. A project thread would be great.

    All the best

    We used it as our wedding car

    a close-up of the sunroof for you 🙂

    I must agree with the previous speaker. The orange one is marvellous! Is the pictures misleading or are there angel eyes in the headlights?

    Yes they are the same style as angel eye headlights, but quite basic compared to the BMW version, they were designed for the Mini…

    I no longer own the orange 95, I sold it about 3 years ago. The last owner fitted airbags and Porsche wheels!

    I am in communication with the new owner though, so hopefully I will see it again one day!

    Thank you Skormakarn.

    I’ve made a contact through this wonderful forum and will hopefully have the parts I need to progress my project. It might not be quite as nice as the orange one, but it will be ’different’!

    I’ll post updates as and when they happen 🙂

    The pickup has been at Coltech Classics this week, getting some bits and pieces done.

    First it had to get through an MOT, but two balljoints later and some other minor bits and pieces and it’s road legal again.

    Smaller screen in place…

    Work on the bed cover has started

    Not only does the bodywork curve from front to back, the tailgate is also curved…

    Getting there slowly, lots more planned, but run out of time at Coltech for now.

    Got some slightly better photos from Paul today (retrieved my camera I’d left with him)…

    70’s window aperture removed

    60’s version welded in

    Grafting in a LHD screen meant the wipers were slightly out of place (thanks to John for sourcing an extended wiper mechanism!)

    I asked Paul to reinstate the spoiler, even supplying two spoilers from donor cars.
    On closer inspection (after the filler had been removed), most of the spoiler was still in place, so a little grinding and welding here and there – and voila!

    Still a whole heap to do!
