What should I do with my old Saab?

I have a 1979 Saab 99, which has been garaged since new. It is not in working order, but the bodywork and the interior are in excellent condition. It may not be relevant, but it has only 19,000 miles on the clock. I now need the garage space and am reluctant to pay for it to be scrapped, as there must be someone out there who would appreciate it.

You never have to pay for a car to be scrapped. A charity (website giveacar.co.uk) will take it away, sell it and donate the proceeds to charity. But the other avenue is the SAAB Club: www.saabclub.co.uk
