The results are varied, ranging from a 1990 Volkswagen T3 Synchro, through a 1974 Ford Escort Mexico and even including a 1965 Chevrolet Corvair, but John Simister choose – 1961 Saab 96 (owned since 2001):
“I’ve always been intrigued by Saabs and I fell in love with the 96 after driving one for Practical Classics magazine,” Simister says. “I bought mine from a mechanic from the Saab museum in Trollhättan and drove it home from there to the UK.”
“I do about 3000 miles a year in the car,” Simister says. “It’s probably the nicest car that I’ve ever owned. It’s eccentric and interesting and I doubt I’ll ever sell it.”
And the winners are…
1st place – Saab 96
Quirky, eccentric and extremely capable, Simister’s 96 is a treasure. And quite rightly, extra points are gained by the owner’s determination to use the car as much as possible.
2nd place – Volkswagen T3 Syncro
3rd place – Chevrolet Corvair / Ford Escort Mexico
