This page is to tell everybod how I'm restoring a Saab 900 classic 2 door saloon. First registered in 1987. Built in 1986. Old stock I suppose.

I started back in january 2006 to take the car apart. My good friend Dennis helped me a lot.

Currently I'm waiting to get the body back. In the meantime I'm doing some small stuff like rebuilding the engine and restoring the drive train.
