Only this time the rock was bigger than the car... (somebody posted a new Saab rally compilation, watch it, shall you?)
any engine without valves always sounds better than engines with valves.
I now have the new title for the ‘68 Saab. Here’s a commercial for Sears Steel Belted radials that has a few shots of one of the Saab Baja entries (and many other cool cars too).
