umm.. what if you're 'between Saabs'?
i'm sure the Fiat Brava 1.4S must be pushing near 57bhp (bling horsepower) at the wheels... wouldn't want to get laughed at mind :wink:

Starting to look like the same old riff raff again, should be fun, certainly was last time. A real eye opener too. Anyone whom was there there last time and has since made some changes this'll be the chance to see if they were worth it.

the throttle body mod was done because of the way it drove after fitting the cams, hence it'll be really fascinating to see what the same rolling road results show.

Liberty accepted are we going to go to the same pub with all the weapons [bottles] lined up [ornamentally arranged] .
Hey I'm from Coventry, spotting a usable weapon is a birthright

Fraid not, having just "lost" the Carly we would appear to be without a functioning Saab (mind you, by June....?)

Of course there's a chance my 900 will turn up in the care of it's new owner, although nothing has been changed on it since last time.....

I've just booked the day for Saturday July 10th, unfortunately this was the only available Saturday PE had anywhere around the end of June...

The cost will be 35 incl VAT per car based on a minimum of 15 cars on the rollers

I'll be moving this thread into the events forum shortly.
