I did an engine re-build for fellow Saab enthusiast, including a fully restored crankshaft with all new bearings. As I got ready to installing the engine back in the car I decided to use my GoPro camera to record it.
So – here you go: Engine installation in a Saab 96 two-stroke 1964 video
Saab 96 T5 – sounds interesting enough. But at the Back? Now that looks like an interesting project. Unfortunately I don’t know a lot about it. But this guy is fitting a Saab NG900 engine and suspension in an old Saab 96 sprint car and making it mid engine.
There’s some photos at this Google gallery, but other than that I don’t really know much more, other than it is work in progress. Looks like it’s coming along nicely.
This is pretty much exactly what i was thinking of doing at one point. Although I would have done it in a bullnose 96 or 93…
The International Saab Meeting 2016 will be held in Sweden. I will be there and have already registered. IntSaab seems as popular as ever as the registration remained open for a very short time – only a day or two – before the places filling up.
Most of the action seems to be around Vadstena and Linköping. At the moment I think I’ll be staying at the Camping site in a tent. Unfortunately I don’t have the time to attend any of the Pre-Tours. The main event for me will be the track day in Linköping but I also hope to find a bunch of Saab parts to take back home.
See you there! Let’s hope the weather will be better than last years Saab Festival…
