Hi there, fellow- FH'ers!

I was thinking since alot of the FH-boards member are well above the driving age, many of you must have cars. So, here is my attempt to create a small car-thread within the friendly walls of the FH-forum.

I got my (first) car a couple of months ago. Its a 1993 built Swedish SAAB 900i with a 2,1l 16v Griffin engine, delivering 138 horse powers.

Here is some pics (I've censored the license plates so Dönitz can't track my ass down):

And a close-up of my mascot: p10100960gs.jpg

Now, go ahead and post pics of your car! :)

Nice car and nice landscape you live in. I'm still not in driving age so I won't post any pics.

Not of mine, but I have the same one (1.8/225 TT, black, but without the, what are those, 17" rims?)

Currently in storage back in Switzerland. I miss it; that car is so much fun to drive :-(

We bought one of these to get us around Chile (posted this pic before):

And of course, not cars, but my babies:

The 1946 Moto Guzzi Airone 250cc (still at the dealer's):

And the 1952 Condor A580 military version:

And @Anna: my girlfriend had a 1997 British Open edition Mini Cooper, the last series of the "old Mini". Great to hammer around in, but she skidded out of control on a wet patch and totalled it against a tunnel piller (thankfully she was okay.) The car didn't take too much obvious damage, but the frame was totally bent out of shape. The airbag didn't go off, so we're extremely lucky she wasn't hurt. Those things are touchy under anything but optimal driving conditions (rain, ice, etc.) and while huge fun to drive, the insurance investigator told us it'd exhibited crash & safety behavior of a 1960s car, i.e. none. So :-(

The 13th RaptorYou must be rich!

No, actually I'm an IT consultant and I get by ok. Not making much money this year (difficult to find projects in S. America) so my girlfriend's picking up a lot of the tab--which works out, since I had a few years of that while she was finishing university. We're not married, no kids, no mortgage, (normally) both earn pretty decent salaries, live in a low tax country and have no debt, so what more do you want?
