I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

I drove 99s and 900s for 30 years and my daughter then drove a diesel for 8 until it self destructed somewhere in Austria. I loved the idiosyncratic design that in many ways led the standard features of modern cars. Loved the double belt seat belts. Got engine spares from Triumph provided you didn't tell them It was a SAAB. Easy to swap cruise counter fro m car to car. Early cars didn't have a rear wiper as aerodynamics meant it stayed dry - in theory.

And the security cage. Saw one hit by a 3 ton concrete pillar, broke the windscreen and dented the roof.
