  1. This "bullnose" is the cats pajamas in old Saabs. Smokey, sounds like a chainsaw, and exudes buckets and buckets of charm. Precious, precious little cars.

    Catch these now, because in just a little while they will be out of reach for many.

    1. My favorite Saab 2 stroke video of all time. Just listen to this thing.

  2. where's that video where the guy is driving the UrSaab around the museum parking lot? - i don't even know how to start googling that

  3. Not a museum parking lot, but...

    1. "Modern" driving footage starts above at 1:35 - apparently "copy video URL at current location" doesn't carry over.

  4. UrSaab in motion, very cool - found the one i meant: Saabmonster in action - start at 2:45, fires it up at 3:35 - watch his face light up in glee!
