I’m quickly growing quite fond of older Mercs like this… Y’know… back when they were actually dependable, quality automobiles.
I feel ya, I wanted a w123 for the longest time!
Washed, but it started raining before I could wax it. Fucking Portland…
CySaab au carwash, mai 2013.
Saab 900 T16 1985
2 SPGs and a vert. Swedish sweetness!
Painting all done. I am a happy man. My SAAB is READY FOR SUMMER!
ALL PHOTO CREDITS GO TO ROBERT J. BARKER.
The first two photos were at the hotel in Springfield, MO.
The third was along the route.. I believe outside Baxter Springs, KS…
The fourth was at our final meeting place in Arcadia, OK. “Pop’s”. A lot of OK and TX Saabers met up with us at the end of our trip. This photo brings it all together (and the soda bottle happens to match my headlights :P)
Full body respray, new fenders, no rust left…my SPG is ready for summer! I have fallen in love once again with this car.
Proper pictures will come soon!
