Flygande Avokado: 1972 Saab 96 V4

Nothing gets your taste buds going like the fresh scent of Skagenröra, which for the uninitiated is a classic Swedish shrimp mix that is best served inside an avocado half-shell.  What else is an amorphously oval blob, green, and smells fantastic?  This 1972 Saab 96 V4 offered for $5,500 in Albuquerque, NM via craigslist.  Tip from Zach Z.

Her name is Olivia and she is a '72 96 with the Ford Taunus borrowed V4 shoved up from and mated precariously to the front wheels.  Nobody expects 65 horsepower to be sporty, but everybody expects to have a great time driving around in a scruffy mutt like this.

  1. Looking at this car really makes me think of the design process. Someone sketched this over and over, they built a scale model and finally a full sized clay model. It really has some wild lines and very interesting shapes.

  2. Fugly color who beat the crap out of it looks like spring bat practice on rear 1/4 too much dough $$$$ for condition.
