After some bigger problems in the past one and half year, It was lately time to do ”Museum Car” inspection to the my two stroke projeckt; Saab 96 Ur Special.

In Finland, you have a possible to get cars over 30 years old for special register as a ”Museum Car”. Many cases its not a simply task, if you dont have your old car nice original shape, you need to restore your care to mind condition. For cars, which might have special historical value, you have possible to make that inspection after conservation. Benefit is, that after that inspection, you have lower insurances and the car is without annual car tax. Sametime annual trafic inspection is every second year for cars yonger than 1960. Car older than 1959 trafic inspection is every fourth year.

So, past two years I have conservate Ur Special; main target to secure technical functionally and road safety + keep those historical values of the car so visible as possible. Secondary some cosmetic works. If you look my previous post, you can find out what I have done. I still have some nice technical tips which I have documented. Because of lack of time (for example assembly bluewhite rally V4), I will publish those articles later on winter. Before that I will to re- register Ur Special and make AYA-10 ready to rallying.

Here some photos from last week
