12 of 50: Helga: 1966 SAAB 96 2-Stroke

The 2-stroke engine is a nasty piece of business that belches smoke and wakes you up on Saturday mornings when gardeners descend on suburbia like modern day locusts with leaf blower backpacks.  2-stroke engines are a plague and should be banned ...except... when pushing around a vintage piece of Swedish steel...then, they are cool.  Find this 1966 SAAB 96 2-stroke for sale in Merritt Island, FL currently bidding for $4,250 reserve-not-met and $6,500 buy-it-now via ebay. Thanks to tip from JPB.

This SAAB 96 looks like a good deal at just above $5k; it brings a ton of vintage SAAB aerodynamic styling and a noisy 2-stroke soundtrack to your driveway for next to nothing. The calabash green paint complements the '60s Scandinavian style as naturally as a scarf on a Parisian.

This feature is part of Daily Turismo's birthday celebration of 50 cars in 24 hours..
