|This is my 1970 Blue Caroline, which I bought by accident through a Portuguese site "equivalent" to ebay (well: not so sophisticated...). It's very similar to the car where I learned to drive, maybe 30 years ago (that one was a stroker). I was so excited when I saw the announcement for it, as they are so rare here in Portugal, I start fiddling with the bid button to find out how all that bidding thing worked, when a message was returned: "Thank you for your bidding". Nobody else bid and I got one more "pet". And I have been petting her well... I got high level diplomas on ebay thanks to her and many contacts around the world, from the UK - I'm member of the SOC for a couple of years and this open some very helpful contacts (the Highgate clutch, for example) - Sweden (the engine belonged to Mats Johnson, also the Ronal's and the Simon exhaust), Germany (where I got the original leather steering wheel) the US (several treats, including an original incomplete SAAB A/C from Chip Lamb, which I was able to complete with the engineering help from David Nimeri from Israel) and more and more...
