    Hi, had a Bronze-Gold EMS coupe – history not valided, but word of mouth was ‘car show’ special – always confusion about rego year – 1971-72 & the car itself – anyway, story is SAAB took a few bronze “ralley” specials around into new markets & showed at Melbourne Motor & as it was THE ralley winner (& it appeared it was but for centre radio console) – lovely loved car – kept for some time to be ‘classic & restore’, but unfortunetly, didn’t happen & as far as I know it’s gone… 🙂 Anyway SAAB EMS was earlier than noted – weakness, Lucus electrical – & it’s raisings it awful Prince of Darkness head again with our work on a 1984 2 d 5 speed import range rover.

    My EMS was silver and the paint peeled off of it like skin off a red-headed kid’s back after a day at the beach. Great car! Looked like hell!! Saab would have nothing to do with it. Met a guy years later who had the same problem. We were sorry we did not meet earlier because we would filed a class action suit on behalf of all silver EMS owners.

    I had my silver 77 EMS for 15 years. Great car! Had a few problems like all cars, but no paint problems.
