somebody posted a bunch of photos on the gambler facebook page, which included some shots of the Saab.
Appears 7 seconds in.
My excuse is this is now actually a priceless Jackson Pollock engine.
Here is my photo dump.
Taking the Saab 95 around the off road park for the Gambler 500.
I have no further comment.
And I’m going to sleep. A lot.
My windshield arrived as a sack of broken glass inside a box. I guess I’m driving the 95 in the Gambler, and going to have to forgo the Sending It.
The brake and tail lights didn’t work. Because they were either burned out, missing, or had sockets filled with dirt and bugs.
I went and saw the things.
At this point the major things have been taken care of. The brakes work, and the engine runs (well, starts anyway). The windshield and radiator are in the post. But all the little stuff still needs to be taken care of.
Might actually make it to the Gambler 500 in this one. Just waiting on the windshield and the radiator.
Siphoning the (probably decade) old gasoline out of the Bajaab through the fuel line. Since I didn’t know how much was actually in the tank, I figured this would be smarter/safer than removing the drain on the bottom of the tank.
New and old clutch cylinder cups.
Renault Le Car, Datsun B210, Chevy Chevette shoot out? Yes Please!
“Paper bags.” for the 1968 SAAB 96. Checked my other old brochures. “Paper bags” were only listed for 1968.
update: second fish and more plants
