  1. EpochNZ's 1973 Saab 99

    Mental Health Day today after having to push through at work for 3 days despite feeling ill all Sunday. Chance to catch up on some sleep and reacquaint myself with the sun. More skirting around the edges on Agnetha while I build up the courage to have a crack at getting her started. She's now fully shod on wider feet and up on some stands at the front to allow some work on the suspension. More importantly I've got my first look at her sans indicator clusters and front bumper in a drive to replicate a pic i saw (hidden now deep in the Euro Cars thread). I think I like the look......I'll sleep on it and see. Definitely needs about an inch (or more) taken out of the height.
  2. "I'm coming to the conclusion that I shouldn't listen to @- i5oogt - or @RUNAMUCK. Terrible influences they are." TBH I think all oldschoolers are as bad as each other when it comes to egging on would be purchasers. I blame you and @Threeonthetree for the Saaaab, for instance.
  3. Tumeke's Spitfire Discussion

    Agreed, went Timaru-Temuka return in a freshly restored one a few years back while in town for work, definitely an experience (in a good way).

  11. EpochNZ's 1973 Saab 99

    Another day of Fun, Hi-Jinks and Frolics at Chez Saaaab. After the first coffee of the morning and finishing stacking the last of the firewood I took off the right front wheel to see what horrors lurked within. First good bit of news is that it is wearing the ATE style brake calipers which look a mite easier to work on than the standard Saaaab Girling models. The guard is pretty good, but not sure about the area around the driveshaft tunnel.... Oh Darn......might need to consult with @yoeddynz on what can be done.... AND....later on the day (with thanks to @RUNAMUCK ), the question that has plagued Saaab owners ever since Sweden started a eugenics program focusing on turning out leggy blondes by the Harem full........How does a 99 look with wider feet? Not bad....not bad at all..... (205/16's for those following along at home) Needs lowering...eventually.

    Now with added straightness! Being winter and all I think this is how things are going to progress for the next few months. Spend sunny weekends ripping things out, then dank, dark weeknights fixing them up inside beside the fire.
  13. Christchurch meets Discussion Thread.

    I would attend but with only 1 rusty shit heap I feel strangely inferior...
