What a great car. It has some resemblance with the Saab 96 from the late sixties, early seventies. Did they copy Bristols sketchbook??

You are correct, they do look similar. I guess there is plenty of copying going on in the car industry, cheers.

Strange looking car. The way how the bonnet opens is quite unusual.

·

Did you notice the storage compartment under the bonnet in front of the firewall, you can store your spare oil, fire extinguisher and other liquids. I think that's a pretty cool idea, cheers.
