As promised earlier, more photos of my new friend. 1972 Saab Sonett, #534 from that year. Last inspected August 1991 in New Jersey.
My '02 Ranger with my '72 Sonett. The lump on its roof is the very dirty car cover it came with.

Now placed behind where the lull parks, to the right of the shed you could see earlier.
Glass isn't actually attached, just held in place by gorilla tape at the moment. The glass is actually also the rear hatch (by itself, no framework)
The seats are obviously a bit rough, but the leather is actually still in surprisingly good condition. They are also still very comfortable, given what they are.
The floors on the other hand? Not so good
There will be more detailed shots tomorrow, I just wanted to show the basics.
As I have said before, I have evil genius plans for this. The frame isn't realistically salvageable (you'd spend far more fixing it than just buying one in better shape). But then, I bought this little guy for its body and interior.
I'll lay out my plans in more detail eventually, but for now I'll leave this as a hint-
First person who can correctly identify this gets a cookie.
And the cookie goes to Party-vi by a nose`
