I wish all these go faster bit's existed when I got my C900 Carly back in early 1992.

Mine was a non-catted leather interior one in Black.

Went very nicely for a early 90's car but I had to let it go when in 1995 I saw a Black CS Aero (the SCAero ), the Carly had had a close call with a drunk driver while it was parked one night and I wasn't going to keep it for long after that.

I only saw that car once more 6 months later and the reg is no longer 'known' by the DVLA so maybe it got killed.

In the 2 and a bit years these cars were available (halfway through 1990 to halfway through 1992), there were only 195 made.

The blue bmw L963 MUA belongs to my parents, funnily enough many years ago they had a 99combi coupe which I eventually bought off my dad when he got a company car, it was my first car restored it a bit and never looked back!
then moved on though a 90, c900i, and a gm900T, now finally got a c900 again
my parents however have never bought another saab, dunno why, although my mum did used to love driving my 900i whilst i lived at home

Is that a sideways dig at me? All I'm doing is expressing my opinion, can I not do that here?

Tuckshop/Saab93.

Thatlooking nice now, and also having a red carly, I know how hard it is to keep red

I see someone has added carly badges to the bonnet and rear air vent covers for extra speed.

The read panhard rod is a doddle to change as I bent one on my old 900i and it only took 15 minurs to change.

We are talking about a 14 year old 900 Carlsson here. Not a collectors car but a drivers car, and for a couple of grand or so, one well worth driving the wheels off. To hell with pristine. [/qb][/b]
Been running "modern classics" i.e. 900 turbos, every day for the last 9 years.

I wonder how many c900 carly's are actually left, don't think I've ever seen a white one, only a few red and less black - probably look best looking in black.
Ours doesn't have leather (at the moment) but does have aircon (which may work again soon too)
hopefully it will live for a long time
Always nice to see good examples of T16s about, such a great burble too

Seen two white 900 Carlsson's and they look far better in the flesh than brochure pictures. "Classic 900" in Hull run one

One Carlsson badge, rear rhs of the boot, sell the rest on ebay! Does it still have the one on the glovebox?

Will do my best for you. The one at "Classic 900" might be for sale if you asked, highish miles (180,000), 5/6 owners but very well looked after + Abbott exhaust. Was up for £2000'ish
