Saab 96, drag coefficient of 0.37, not bad by 1960's standards. That’s the same, BTW, as a Ferrari F50. A VW Beetle had 0.48, A Citroen DS 0.36.
Soaking the Bajaab’s carb in a bucket of denatured alcohol overnight. This is the first real work I’ve done on the car. Have a rebuild kit ready to go in.
Beautiful (over)restoration on BAT right now.
haunting my 96. Which will be coming home next month so I can start teardown once the weather cools off.
I mean really? What?
Got a rebuild kit for the Bajaab’s carb on order. Decided to peak inside the carb. It’s not as bad as I feared, but it’s still pretty dirty. The accelerator pump membrane has also petrified.
Was surprised to see some big vehicles can carry very little weight.
Somehow a tiny spitfire makes the Saab look smaller than a huge modern car does.
That FP post about Australians impounding improperly lifted trucks made me think about something again. Police seem to have a hate boner for modified cars, yet all manner of lifted trucks never get ticketed. I know for a fact that there were strict rules in Colorado about vehicle lifts, that so far as I could see were…
Behold: one of the oddest cameras in my collection. I think I finally have it working properly. This is a 1920's single lens reflex, which makes eight huge 6x9cm exposures on a roll of 120 film.
Cony 360 Wide, mid engined, air-cooled kei truck. Fortunately, missing few pieces, but good luck finding what it is.
Video games in color. Took a moment to figure out how to get it to turn on, but it works.
Built this VW Beetle rack a few months ago, but finally had a bit of time to see how it’ll fit on the Bajaab.
Is this a racoon? Why does it only appear to have three paw pads?
I wonder where it is today. It’s a fairly rare car even without the TV history so I’d think it still exists in either a restored state or preserved as it was in the show.
